Let me tell you 'bout a place
To somewhere up a New York way
Where the people are so gay
Twistin' the night away

Here they have a lot of fun
Puttin' trouble on the run
Man, you find the old and young
Twistin' the night away

They're twistin', twistin'
Everybody's feelin' great
They're twistin', twistin'
They're twistin' the night away

Here's a man in evenin' clothes
How he got here, I don't know
But man you oughta see him go
Twistin' the night away

He's dancin' with the chick in slacks
She's a movin' up and back
Oh, man there ain't nothin' like
Twistin' the night away

They're twistin', twistin'
Everybody's feelin' great
They're twistin', twistin'
They're twistin' the night
Let's twist a while

Lean up, lean back
Lean up, lean back
Watusi, now fly, now twist
They're twistin' the night away

Here's a fella in blue jeans
Dancin' with a older queen
Who's dolled up in a diamond rings and
Twistin' the night away

Man, you oughta see her go
Twistin' to the Rock 'n' Roll
Here you find the young and old
Twistin' the night away

They're twistin', twistin', man
Everybody's feelin' great
They're twistin', twistin'
They're twistin' the night
One more time

Lean up, lean back
Lean up, lean back
Watusi, now fly, now twist
