	   Hot sun    Beating           Burning  wal-  around 
			  down		my feet   king 
 
 
C C G G		 F  G G 
      Hot sun        beating down 
C C G G			   Bb       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                        Bb    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.

   checking... place...  know 
 
    Bb			      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

End: 
---- 
 
Play chorus lots of time with loads of scat vocals...while 
playing the "intro-riff"... 
 
and singing: 
 
"I won't dance,  please don't ask me..."
