The Lyrics

This is why I don't dance.
Man, tried a new dance
I'm old, not new
Slipped my mind I'm a seventies fool
Went and ripped my pants, and hit the pine
Badly bruised, I got a sore behind
Got one fast ride, hospitals aren't fun
I want to discourage everyone
Uncoordinated-I'm that chap
Avoid the "currentfaddiscodancing" trap
Take a walk, don't be wild, Clyde
And the underpaid emergency nurses said:

Pulled a muscle!
Pulled a muscle!
Pulled a muscle!
Pulled a muscle!

Express myself
What a dunderhead thought!
And right now, sure wish I did not
Specific bones cause me groans
I got nothing left to tone
Now here I lay and feel like crap
Avoid the "joininwiththecrowdIwill" trap
Take a walk, don't be wild, Clyde
Or the underpaid emergency nurses say:

Pulled a muscle!
Pulled a muscle!
Pulled a muscle!
Rue it!
Oh, my body!
Oh, my body!
Pulled a muscle!
All the aches and pains
Pullin' that muscle
Pulled a muscle!
Oh, my body!
Not up
No fun
For me!

What do you mean "The Hustle" has lyrics? What's up with that? I've known the OS to not have lyrics other than "Do The Hustle".
