Dandy, Dandy, Where you gonna go now? Who you gonna run to? All your little life You're chasing all the girls. They can't resist your smile. Oh, they long for Dandy, Dandy. Checkin' out the ladies, Tickling their fancy, Pouring out your charm To meet your own demands, And turn it off at will. Knockin' on the back door, Climbing through the window, Hubby's gone away, And while the cat's away The mice are gonna play. Oh, you low down Dandy, Dandy. This is private, please get off my line. Please tell me when I can have my privacy. I'd like to meet the girl who's always talking When I'm speaking on my party line. Wish I had a more direct connection. This party line was here when I arrived. And I'm not voting in the next election, If they don't do something about finding out The person who is on my party line. I'm on a party line, Wonderin' all the time, Who's on the other end?
