"Watch Your Footwork" is the third song of the 1967 Disney film The Happiest Millionaire, written by the Academy Award-winning songwriting team of Richard Sherman and Robert B. Sherman.

Lyrics

Liv:
Remember Harry Applegate

Tony:
Yeah, he took Cordy on a date

Liv:
Oh what a dapper Dan
Pearly teeth and tennis tan

Tony:
Remember him well
Thought he was a Romeo

Liv:
Tried to kiss out sis, and oh
Harry ducked but too late

Tony:
Father bought him an upper plate

Both:
Watch your footwork
Better learn to bob and weave
Sister Cordy's got dynamite up her sleeve

Liv:
What a jab

Both:
Dynamite up her sleeve

Tony:
What a hook

Both:
Dynamite up her sleeve
Keep your guard up

Liv:
Archie Baxter came here twice

Tony:
First time out he acted nice

Liv:
Romance was in the air
Oh they made a lovely pair

Tony:
Beautiful
Second date it was a dance
He grabbed her tight this was his chance

Liv:
Cordy only bruised that sport

Tony:
Father settled it out of court

Both:
Watch your footwork
Better learn to bob and weave
Sister Cordy's got dynamite up her sleeve

Liv:
What a right

Both:
Dynamite up her sleeve

Tony:
What a cross

Both:
Dynamite up her sleeve
Keep your guard up

Liv:
Say, do you remember Harvey Drew

Tony:
Oh yeah, captain of the Dartmouth crew

Liv:
That's him
A letter man three years
Muscles

Tony:
Between his ears

Liv:
Now be generous
While rowing Cordy 'round the lake
A crude advance did Harvey make

Tony:
A gruesome scene

Liv:
It happened so fast

Tony:
Next week they remove the cast

Both:
So watch your footwork
Better learn to bob and weave
Sister Cordy's got dynamite up her sleeve
What a faint
Dynamite up her sleeve
What an uppercut
Dynamite up her sleeve
