They Don't Dance Like Carmen No More Lyrics

Artist: Jimmy Buffett
Album: White Sport Coat And Pink Crustacean

By: Jimmy Buffett
1973
Walkin' down new streets, music is loud
Neon signs bring in tumultuous crowds
But I'm just an old man, I'd probably get sore
'Cause they don't dance like Carmen no more

She and ol' Cougie, my what a pair
Jus' doin' the Rhumba as no one else dared
Slidin' and glidin' 'cross Hollywood floors
But they don't dance like Carmen no more

-- Spoken:
"Take it Marvin"

"Shk chk, shk chk, shk chk"

Well now she had a big hat, my it was high
Had bananas and mangos all piled to the sky
How she could balance it, I wouldn't dare
But they don't dance like Carmen nowhere

"Shk chk, shk chk, shk chk"

Ah but the lady's not with us, she died long ago
And they don't show her movies on late midnight shows
'Cause the kids would get restless, and the grown-ups would snore
'Cause they don't dance like Carmen no more

Well now she and old Cougie, my what a pair
Just doin' the Boogie as no one else dared
Slidin' and glidin' 'cross hardwood waxed floors
But they don't dance like Carmen no more

No more
No no no more
And I'm just an old man, I'd probably get sore
But they don't dance like Carmen no more
Nah they don't dance like Carmen no more

Coda:
Ten cents dance, I might take a chance
But they don't dance like Carmen no more
