THE TWO-FACED BOOGIE

Well I was talkin' with my baby's best friend last night,
She said, "I hate it when my BFF don't treat you right."
Honey, listen, let me tell ya what's been goin' on,
She's workin' somethin' on the side like a dog on a bone."

She's doing the two-faced boogie.
She's doing the two-faced boogie.
She's doing the two-faced boogie,
The oldest dance in town.

I got a buddy in the slammer corresponding with me,
He ended up behind bars, 'cause he just didn't see,
He's doin' hard time 'cause he took the fall,
For his partner in crime, the rat wanted it all.

It was the two-faced boogie.
It was the two-faced boogie.
It was the two-faced boogie,
The oldest dance in town.

Lurkin' in the shadows,
Cheatin' and stealin',
All them little white lies,
People steppin' on each others' feelings.

I got a little speedin' ticket that I didn't deserve,
By a cop who saw a vette pass me on the curve,
I pleaded for some mercy from the traffic judge,
But the gavel came down on me 'cause he just wouldn't budge,

He did the two-faced boogie.
He did the two-faced boogie.
He did the two-faced boogie,
The oldest dance in town.

They did the two-faced boogie.
They did the two-faced boogie--ow!

(triple chorus)
They did the two-faced boogie.
They did the two-faced boogie.
They did the two-faced boogie,
The oldest dance in town.

They did the two-faced boogie,
The oldest dance in town.
They did the two-faced boogie,
The oldest dance in town.
