Lyrics:

Gonna tell Aunt Mary about Uncle John
He says he got the blues but he has a lot of fun

Oh baby,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh baby,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh baby,
We're having some fun tonight

Well Long Tall Sally has a lot on the ball
And nobody cares if she's short and tall

Oh baby,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh baby,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh baby,
We're having some fun tonight

Yeah, we're having some fun tonight
Yeah, we're having some fun tonight
Yeah, we're having some fun tonight
Yeah, everything's all right
Yeah, we're having some fun,
We're having some fun tonight

Well I saw Uncle John with Long Tall Sally
He saw Aunt Mary coming and he ducked back in the alley

Oh baby,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh baby,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh baby,
We're having some fun tonight

Yeah, we're having some fun tonight
Yeah, we're having some fun tonight
Yeah, we're having some fun tonight
Yeah, everything's all right
Yeah, we're having some fun,
We're having some fun tonight
