Willie Fitzgibbons who used to sell ribbons
And stood up all day on his feet
Grew very spoony on Madeline Mooney
Who'd rather be dancing than eat.
Each evening she'd tag him
To some dancehall drag him
And when the band started to play
She'd up like a silly and grab tired Willie
Steer him on the floor and she'd say

Chorus: Waltz me around again, Willie
Around, around, around
The music is dreamy, it's peaches and creamy
Oh don't let my feet touch the ground
I feel like a ship on an ocean of joy
I just want to holler out loud 'Ship ahoy'
Oh waltz me around again, Willie
Around, around, around

Willie Devere was a dry goods cashier
At his desk he would sit all the day
Till his doctor advised him to start exercising
Or else he would soon fade away
One night this poor loony met Madeline Mooney
Fitzgibbons then shouted with joy
'She's a good health regainer, you've got a great trainer
Just wait till she hollers my boy'
