Betty: [singing] I'm feeling that I'm reeling, When they strike up a band, Each rhythm has me with 'em, And I'll say that it's grand, There's only one reason, My feet want to fly, All stepping, out stepping, I'm telling you why, When music's good and hot, I start to sway a lot, And all because I've got, Loose ankles...
