"Your groove I do deeply dig . . ."

I come to dance at the club

where the pipes are hot

and the boiler's mean.

I am wearing a T-shirt.

Oh baby.

"The groove is in the heart . . ."

I do my thing

in front of the wall

with the lava lamps.

People say I have a molten look.

Oh baby.

"I couldn't ask for a-no-ther . . ."

You think I'm a growling leather motorcycle.

You're right to worry.

I am a partner at Coople & Kugle by day.

I am Hot Lava at night.

Oh baby.

"The groove is in the heart . . ."

I have a card to the VIP room.

The owners will know me.

There will be fashion models.

You can see my tattoos.

Oh baby.

Two weeks hence: the woman in the Blue Room
