Lyrics

Well, she comes from Tallahassee
She got a Hi-Fi chassis
Maybe looks a little sassy
But to me, she's real classy

Yeah, my Tallahassee Lassie
Down in F-L-A

Well, she's romping to the Drag
The Cha-cha, Rag-a-mop
Stomping to the Shag
Rocks the Bunny Hop

Ooh, ooh...

Well, she dances to the Bop
She dances to the Stroll
She dances to the Walk
She can rock and roll

She's my Tallahassee lassie
Yeah, my Tallahassee lassie
She's my Tallahassee lassie
Down in F-L-A

Well, she comes from Tallahassee
She got a Hi-Fi chassis
Maybe looks a little sassy
But to me, she's real classy

Yeah, my Tallahassee Lassie
Down in F-L-A

Well, she's romping to the Drag
The Cha-cha, Rag-a-mop
Stomping to the Shag
Rocks the Bunny Hop

Ooh, ooh...

Well, she dances to the Bop
She dances to the Stroll
She dances to the Walk
She can rock and roll

She's my Tallahassee lassie
Yeah, my Tallahassee lassie
She's my Tallahassee lassie
Down in F-L-A

Come on, baby
Come on, honey

Yeah, come on, sugar...
