SITTERíS REEL

 

This is it.Here it comes.Canít you feel that beat?

Thereís no way out; youíve got to pay that debt you owe your feet.

Youíve got two knees, a bunch of toes, an ankle and some heel

and that means youíve got no excuse,

theyíre playing the sitterís reel.

 

Sitterís reel, sitterís reel, everybody can.

Everybody look the other way; Iím not a dancing man.

 

You donít have to know the step, you just do what you feel.

The rhythmís there, but itís optional; itís just a sitterís reel.

So grab a partner, if one ainít grabbed you; now everything is fair.

But youíre gonna have to do something,

cause theyíre taking away the chairs.

 

Sitterís reel, sitterís reel, everybody can.

Everybody look the other way; Iím not a dancing man.

 

Youíve got a match, youíve got a wick, youíve got a lump of wax

If youíd only light that candle youíd be nimble as any Jack.

So drop your hat, chuck your coat, and burn those clumsy shoes

If you wonít do the sitterís reel,

there ainít much hope for you.

 

Sitterís reel, sitterís reel, everybody can.

Everybody look the other way; Iím not a dancing man.

Sitterís reel, sitterís reel, everybody can.

Everybody look the other way; Iím not a dancing man.
