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

Here they have a lot of fun putting trouble on the run
Man
You find the old and young twisting the night away

They're twisting
Twisting
Everybody's feeling great
They're twisting
Twisting
They're twisting the night away

Here's a man in evening clothes
How he got here I don't know but man
You oughta see him go twisting the night away

He's dancing with the chick in slacks
She's a moving up and back
Oh
Man there ain't nothing like twisting the night away

They're twisting
Twisting
Everybody's feeling great
They're twisting
Twisting
They're twisting the night away

Let's twist a while
Lean up
Lean back
Lean up
Lean back
Watusi
Now fly
Now twist
They're twisting the night away

Here's a fella in blue jeans dancing with a older Queen
Who's dolled up in a diamond rings and twisting the night away

Man
You oughta see her go twisting to the rock and roll
Here you find the young and old twisting the night away

They're twisting
Twisting
Everybody's feeling great
They're twisting
Twisting
They're twisting the night away

One more time
Lean up
Lean back
Lean up
Lean back
Watusi
Now fly
Now twist
They're twisting the night away

Very catchy! I always remember this song from that dumb Dennis Quaid movie 'Innerspace'. Martin Short gets a bit drunk and starts dancing about like a loony - but they picked a good song for it!
