Dance With Who Brung You    (1979)

You got to dance with who brung you, swing with who swung you
Don't be a fickle fool
You came here with a gal, who's always been your pal
Don't leave her for the first unattached girl
It just ain't cool
You got to dance with who brung you, swing with who swung you
Life ain't no forty-yard dash
Be in it for the long run
'cause in the long run you'll have more fun
If you dance with who brung you to the bash

I had a friend from Texas, he really had some style
He sang that good old Western Swing and drove 'em wild
Then a talent scout from Vegas said "Boy, dress and sing this way"
And in one short year he was broke and in L.A.

You got to dance with who brung you, swing with who swung you
Don't be a fickle fool
You came here with a gal, who's always been your pal
Don't leave her for the first unattached girl
It just ain't cool
You got to dance with who brung you, swing with who swung you
Life ain't no forty-yard dash
Be in it for the long run
'cause in the long run you'll have more fun
If you dance with who brung you to the bash

You gotta be real careful what you wish for
'cause you just might get the whole darn thing
Be sure what you want is something you can use
Or you might wind up out there, just singing the Blues

You got to dance with who brung you, swing with who swung you
Don't be a fickle fool
You came here with a gal, who's always been your pal
Don't leave her for the first unattached girl
It just ain't cool
You got to dance with who brung you, swing with who swung you
Life ain't no forty-yard dash
Be in it for the long run
'cause in the long run you'll have more fun
If you dance with who brung you to the bash

If you dance with who brung you to the bash
Dance with who brung you to the bash
