lyrics

Let's make our way when the sun goes down
to the old mill at the back of town
You can believe the place is lit up
and full of skeletons dancing

The Skeleton Dance gets under your skin
It don't matter 'bout the shape you're in
Just step out of your birthday suit
Wade in and dance with your lawyer

You can make clave with your finger bone
And play your ribs like a xylophone
Clack your teeth in time with the tune
and make with rolling your bumper

There is a time and a place for everything
A time to work and a time to sing
But don't wait until you tip over
to move your skeleton framework
