  • Even though it wasn't a parody. "That Boy Could Dance" was inspired by The Kinks "Jack The Idiot Dunce". (CZW Ref Fan Steven)
  • From the 1984 album WEIRD AL YANKOVIC IN 3-D. (sav-man)
  • Was the B-side to Weird Al's 1984 single "Eat It." (sav-man)
  • An original (read: non-parody) song from Weird Al about a former geek made good. (sav-man)
  • Song Lyrics:
    We all used to call him Jimmy the Geek
    He was a dumb lookin' scrawny little four-eyed freak
    He never used to hang around with the guys
    He'd just sit in the corner attractin' the flies
    He wasn't much to look at
    He never was very bright
    But at least there was one thing that he could do all right

    That boy could dance
    That boy could dance, yeah

    He was kind of a jerk, he was kind of a bore
    But the women would scream when he walked in the door
    'Cause one thing I can tell you for sure
    That boy could dance

    Pickin' teams, he would always be last
    He couldn't run very far, he couldn't think very fast
    If he was on your side, you'd always lose
    That guy had a problem even tyin' his shoes

    He never passed a driver's test
    He was always afraid of cars
    And he had a complexion that resembled the surface of Mars

    But that boy could dance
    That boy could dance, yeah

    Well, his hair was a mess, and his clothes didn't fit
    He'd smell pretty bad, and he'd drool just a bit
    But you got to admit
    Boy, that boy could dance

    Now that boy is much older
    He got his own dance studio
    He got a teeny bopper fan club
    Yeah, he got his own TV show
    Now he owns half of Montana
    They all call him Diamond Jim
    And you know I'd do anything if I could be just like him

    'Cause that boy could dance
    That boy could dance
    That boy could dance
    (That boy could dance)
    That boy could dance, dance
    (That boy could dance)
    That boy could dance
    (That boy could dance)
    That boy could dance, yeah
    (That boy could dance)
    I said, I said that boy could dance
    (That boy could dance)
    That boy could dance, dance
    (That boy could dance)
    That boy could dance
    (That boy could dance)
    That boy could dance
    (Sonic SBL)
