I've got the lumps in my throat when I saw her coming down the aisle
I get the wiggles in my knees when she looked at me and sweetly smiled

There she is again standing over by the record machine
She's looking like a model on the cover of a magazine
Why she's too cute to be a minute over 17

Meanwhile, I was thinking
She's in the mood, no need to break it
I got the chance, I ought to take it
She can dance, we can make it
Come on, queenie, let's shake it

Go, go, go, little queenie

Won't you tell me who's the queen standing over by the record machine?
Why she's looking like a model on the cover of a magazine
Yeah, she's too cute to be a minute over 17

Take off my shoes...

Meanwhile, I was still thinking
If it's a slow song, we'll omit it
If it's a rocker, that'll get it
And if it's good, she'll admit it
Come on, queenie, let's get with it
