Dancing back to back
Takes you off the beaten track
You don't look at your partner at all
When you dance back to back
That's that new attack
That the other dances lack
You can see what goes on in the hall
When you dance back to back...
Your partner won't see you make eyes at who dances by
Your partner, oh my dear, he's doing the same,
That's why you must dance back to back,
Let me place you in the pack
Cut the cards and I'll deal you a queen and a jack
Back to back!
