(there’s gonna be a) showdown lyrics – archie bell & the drells

say man, they tell me you
think you’re pretty good
don’t you know you’re
in my neighborhood

they tell me you’re
pretty fast on your feet
so i want you to meet me at
the dance hall on market street
you hear

hey, hey, there’s gonna be a showdown
hey, hey, there’s gonna be a showdown
showdown, oh, yeah

i’ve got ten notches on my shoes
when it comes to dancing
i just can’t lose

they call me the top
cat in this man’s town
so i want you to meet me
before the sun goes down

[repeat chorus]

all the girls
are losing faith in me
don’t seem like top cat’s
great as he used to be

i know i’m good
so you better be better
when you get out on the floor
you better have your steps together

[repeat chorus]

now my reputation has been
one of the fastest men alive
so i’m gonna see how good you are
when i count to five

(one) oh, man, you better step
(two) you can do better than that
(three) man, will you move aside
(four) and let me get out here
(five) and do my jive

[repeat chorus 2x to fade]
