Song lyrics to I Can’t Dance (I Got Ants in My Pants) (1934) music by Clarence Williams, lyrics by Charles Gaines, performed in Meet the People

Now, let’s go walking,
Let’s go walking,
Out the park,
Out the park,
I’m not responsible
I’m not responsible
What I do after a dark!
What I do after a dark!

Now, let’s go walking,
Let’s go walking,
Out the park,
Out the park,
I’m not responsible
I’m not responsible
What I do after a dark!
What I do after a dark!

Forgive me, miss,
Forgive me, miss,
I must insist
I must insist
You can’t resist,
You can’t resist,
If you feel like this!
If you feel like this!

‘Cause I can’t dance,
I can’t dance,
I got ants in my pants,
Got ants in my pants,
Now, I can’t dance,
I can’t dance,
Got ants in my pants!
Got ants in my pants!

Now, let’s get a penthouse,
Let’s get a penthouse,
And go to town,
And go to town,
I want some pettin’,
I want some pettin’
That’ll bring me down!
That’ll bring me down!

Now, let’s get a penthouse,
Now, let’s get a penthouse,
And go to town,
And go to town,
I want some pettin’,
I want some pettin’
That’ll bring me down!
That’ll bring me down!

[Scatting]

Now, I can’t dance,
Now, I can’t dance,
Got ants in my pants,
Got ants in my pants,
Now, I can’t dance,
Now, I can’t dance,
Got ants in my pants!
Got ants in my pants!

Now, let’s go riding,
Let’s go riding,
Ain’t gonna carry you far,
Where you gonna take me?
Now, you’ll fix the blow-out,
I’ll fix the blow-out,
And I’ll drive the car!
And you’ll drive the car!

Boy, let’s go riding,
Where you goin’?
Ain’t gonna carry you far,
You’re gonna take me from where?
You’ll fix the blow-out,
I’ll fix the blow-out,
And I’ll drive the car!
And you’ll drive the car!

But, you gotta have gas,
You gotta have gas,
If you wanna go fast,
If you wanna go fast,
Ain’t got no gas,
Then you got a dead motor, dead car!

Now, I can’t dance,
You can’t dance?
I got ants in my pants,
Ha, ha!
Now, I can’t dance,
Now, you can’t dance,
I got ants in my pants!
Ants in your pants!
