Verse:
Danc -ing may do this and that, And help you take off lots of fat,
But I'm no friend of danc -ing when it's hot!
So if you are a danc -ing fool, Who loves to dance but can't keep cool,
Bear in mind the i -dea that I've got.
 
Chorus:
When it gets too hot for com -fort, And you can't get ice -cream cones,
'Tain't No Sin, to take off your skin, and dance a -round in your bones.
When the laz -y syn -co -pa -tion of the mus -ic soft -ly moans,
'Tain't No Sin, to take off your skin, and dance a -round in your bones.
The Pol -ar Bears are -n't green up in Green -land, They've got the right i -dea.
They think it's great to re -frig -er -ate while we all cre -mate down here.
Just be like those Bam -boo Ba -bies, In the South Sea trop -ic zones,
'Tain't No Sin to take off your skin, And dance a -round in your bones.
