Verse:
I've danced to man -y tunes that peo -ple have raved a -bout, But here's a mel -o -dy that I could -n't do with out.
The one I'm tell -ing you of, can -not be beat, It runs a -round my brain and tick -les my danc -ing feet.
It's not a jaz -zy tune, nor is it a sym -pho -ny, Just hear it once or twice I know you'll a -gree,
It's most o -rig -i -nal, It's most un -us -u -al, And just as cute as it can be.
 
Chorus:
What a pe -cul -iar tune, Thrill -ing me night and noon, What a pe -cul -iar tune.
Has such a fun -ny swing, It's such a catch -y thing, Mak -in' me like a loon.
It teas -es me, Pleas -es me, It's in the air, It's ev -ry -where,
It's haunt -ing me, taunt -ing me, What a re -frain, play it a -gain,
Mak -in' me want to dance, Mak -in' me want to prance, That mel -o -dy so queer.
Mak -in' me want to twirl, Keep -in' my brain a -whirl Rhyth -m is all I hear.
The Doll Dance is it's name. It's gon -na drive you in -sane,
Such a pe -cul -iar tune, You're gon -na hum it soon, What a pe -cul -iar tune.
