Lyrics

Livingston:
Remember Harry Applegate

Tony:
Yeah, he took Cordie on a date

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

Tony:
Remember him well
Thought he was a Romeo

Livingston:
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 Cordie's got dynamite up her sleeve

Livingston:
What a jab

Both:
Dynamite up her sleeve

Tony:
What a hook

Both:
Dynamite up her sleeve
Keep your guard up

Livingston:
Archie Baxter came here twice

Tony:
First time out he acted nice

Livingston:
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

Livingston:
Cordie only bruised that sport

Tony:
Father settled it out of court

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

Livingston:
What a right

Both:
Dynamite up her sleeve

Tony:
What a cross

Both:
Dynamite up her sleeve
Keep your guard up

Livingston:
Say, do you remember Harvey Drew

Tony:
Oh yeah, captain of the Dartmouth crew

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

Tony:
Between his ears

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

Tony:
A gruesome scene

Livingston:
It happened so fast

Tony:
Next week they remove the cast

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