I met her dancing to the Castle Rock,

I held her tight and danced around the clock

We rocked to romance to the Castle Rock,

She kissed me and I kissed my heart goodbye.

I felt like I was drifting `cross the sky.

We rocked to heaven to the Castle Rock.

Music was soft and low, setting me all aglow,

Holding it to my heart, how could I dream we'd part.

Suddenly she was gone, leaving me dreaming on,

Now everytime they play the Castle Rock,

I'll take myself a walk around the block.

Till she comes back to dance the Castle Rock.

(Go get em, Harry [James], for old time's sake)

<musical interlude>

I'm mad at dancing to the Castle Rock,

I held her tight and danced around the clock.

We rocked to romance to the Castle Rock.

Now everytime they play the Castle Rock,

I'll take myself a walk around the block,

Till she comes back to dance the Castle Rock.

Till she comes back to dance the Castle Rock.
