Big Noise From Winnetka

This is the story of a young girl who was the Einstein of the dance
They called her Big Noise from Winnetka, against her no one stood a chance
Big Noise blew in from Winnetka, stole each fellow's heart and then
Big Noise blew in from Winnetka, Big Noise blew right out again.

Boys were sighing, their girlfriends crying, hearts were pounding when
The Big Noise dances, hence romances, it`s just astounding when
Big Noise blew in from Winnetka, Big Noise blew right out again.

Stop! Look! Listen! Listen to the Big Noise. (2x)

I am the one they call the Big Noise
I got to dance my way to fame
I just blew in from Winnetka, that town will never be the same
Now I had my fun, and yet there`s just one who's got me from the start
I'd love to conga a little bit longer but it keeps us apart
Exit Big Noise from Winnetka, enter Big Noise in his heart.

Big men move me out
Senors zonk me out
Zim zom zup ma ma
Big men boo bop ba, bah ba doo wop
Boodeeah baby boodeeah baby boodeeah baby
Boodeeah baby boodeeah baby boodeeah baby baby baby over 'n' out.

She loves the bass
She loves the drum
She loves to stay out late and dance the samba, samba, how she loves to samba
Rumba, salsa, limbo and pachenga
She's so restless she's on every guest list
None can please her
She'd say no to Ceaser
Teach me, why don't you teach me
Show me how to let go!

There she goes 'round again
Up and then down again
In and then out
Hooo!

When Big Noise waltzes through the door the bouncer has to clear the floor
'Cause everybody wants to see the girl get down, the girl get down
And if you try to hold me tight, I'll disappear into the night
My lover's waiting home for me (she don't do that! She don't do that!)

Everyone's got a bit of Big Noise in his heart
Everyone likes to toot his horn
I've been the Big Noise from Winnetka for so long
Time for a new noise to be born
'Cause I had my fun and there's just one who's got me from the start
Exit Big Noise for Winnetka, enter Big Noise in my heart.

Once she was pickin' up the big boys...
Now I'm pickin' up my little kids' toys...
Big Noise we miss you.
