Verse 1

I don’t know what you’ve been told
It ain’t the butterfly, it’s the Tootsee Roll
A brand new dance, so
Grab a partner and get on the dance floor
And work them hips a lil’ bit
Then do that dip a lil’ bit
Oh yeah, you got it
No ifs, ands or no buts about it
And you over there, with the long hair
Keep rollin’ that derriere
‘Cause it ain’t hard
Just a brand new dance for the 1990-Quad
69 in the place to be
Hey yo, ‘Ski, what we came to see?
