You're just a simple melody
Designed to haunt your memory
It's bound to get you instantly

It sneaks up on you unaware
Before you even know it's there
You're swaying to its catchy air

Dancing with your favourite thrill
He will hold you closer still
And suddenly you both agree
That dancing can be heavenly
You're just a simple melody

It's just a simple thing
And it starts with a major swing
It's a tune that'll make you sing
And sing and sing and sing
First the southpaw flow
Bo-bo-bo-bo-bo-bo
Then it starts to go
Tah-dah-rah-dah, deh-dah-dah-lad-lah-dah-dah
Rocks you to-and-fro
Dah-dah-deh-dah-dah, dee-dah-dah-lah-dah

You know this melody is always haunting me
It delights you, it excites you
This melody will never let me be

It sneaks up on you unaware
Before you even know it's there
They're playing, you're swaying

It's just a simple melody
Designed to haunt your memory
It's bound to get you instantly
Dah-hah, dah-hah-hah, doo-duh-dah-doo-lah-hah

It sneaks up on you unaware
Before you even know that it's there
You're swaying to its catchy air

Dancing with your favourite thrill
He will hold you closer still
Trumpets ring, then let's sing
Rhythm swing
De-do-de-do-de-do-de
It's just a simple melody
