Hot sun Beating Burning wal- around
Down my feet king

C G G F G G
Hot sun beating down
C C G G A# C
Burning my feet just walking around.

(Same thing:)

Hot sun making me sweat
'Gators getting close, hasn't got me yet

Chorus: (same tune as verse)
-------
C C G G F G G
I can't dance, I can't talk.
C C G G A# C
The only thing about me is the way I walk.

I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling everything.

Verse 2:
--------

Blue jeans sitting on the beach,
Her dog's talking to me, but she's out of reach.

She's got a body under that shirt,
But all she wants to Do is rub my face in the dirt.

'Cause, I can't dance, I can't talk.
The only thing about me is the way I walk.
No, I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling.

A# F
And checking everything is in place,
C
You never know who's looking on.

Verse 3:
--------

Young punk spilling beer on my shoes,
Fat guy's talking to me trying to steal my blues.

Thick smoke, see her smiling through.
I never thought so much could happen just shooting pool.

But I can't dance, I can't talk.
The only thing about me is the way I walk.
I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling
