DIM, DIM THE LIGHTS (I WANT SOME ATMOSPHERE)
(Beverly Ross - Julius Dixon)
BILL HALEY & HIS COMETS (DECCA 9-29317, 1954)

Oh what a crazy party, all the gang's here, too
The beat is really jumpin' like a kangaroo
I'm pullin' cherry soda and potato chips
But now I wanna get a taste of your sweet lips

[Chorus]
So, dim, dim the lights (dim, dim the lights)
Dim, dim the lights (dim, dim the lights)
Turn down the lights, I want some atmosphere

The furniture is bouncin' round the room with glee
And rockin' like a boat upon a stormy sea
But dig the crazy clock, it's runnin' wild tonight
But still I haven't had a chance to hold you tight

Look at Annie's earings bouncin' off her back
Look at Suzie kissin' and a-huggin' Jack
Look at Nancy dancin' in her stocking feet
We're all goin' crazy with the mambo beat

But everybody's really havin' lots of fun
But honey as for me the night has just begun
'Cause now I wanna tell you things and hold you tight
But, how can I do it with the room so bright?

But everybody's really havin lots of fun
But honey as for me the night has just begun
'Cause now I wanna tell you things and hold you tight
But, how can I do it with the room so bright?
