Lyrics

Lyrics are property and copyright of their owners, and provided here for educational purposes only.

I didn't drink and I never danced
I couldn't take no club romance
But this floozy had no shame
Libedo torpedo

I was -
Too kool to kalypso
Too tough to tango
Too weird to watusi
Too tough to tango
Too kool to kalypso
Too tough to tango
Too kool to kalypso
Too tough to tango

What she did was hard to believe
Libedo torpedo
But by morning I couldn't leave
Libedo torpedo
Picking her up was like falling down the stairs
With her on top of me I couldn't put on any airs

I was 
Too kool to kalypso
Too tough to tango
Too weird to watusi
Too tough to tango
Too kool to kalypso
Too tough to tango
Too kool to kalypso
Too tough to tango

At my heart she took careful aim
Libedo torpedo
And you know that floozy had no shame
Libedo torpedo

I was 
Too kool to kalypso
Too tough to tango
Too weird to watusi
Too tough to tango
Too kool to kalypso
Too tough to tango
Too weird to watusi
Too tough to tango
Too kool to kalypso
Too tough to tango
Too weird to watusi
Too tough to tango
Too kool to kalypso
Too tough to tango
Too kool to kalypso
Too tough to tango
