The Lyrics

Holiday party
Earth Wind and Fire sounding just fine
but unfortunately
Elaine Benes moves like a Frankenstein
She can't dance, I suspect.
The biggest thing she'll lose is the office respect
She can't dance, She can't see
Her workers laughing inside
endlessly.

At the office the next day,
everybody's talking about
Elaine's way.
Of providing a rhythmic event,
mocking her attempt at holiday entertainment.
'cos, she can't dance, Jerry knew,
that her lack of natural rhythm was nothing new.
but, he did not, tell her so,
Tried to protect her feelings.
That tactful strategy backfired;
She never knew what was going on.

Kramer asks Jerry a favor,
Shoot a bootleg film with such a violent flavor.
Something came up no escape;
There was a surprise waiting at the end of the tape.
Elaine can't dance, but so what?
All the clubs in Manhattan think her moves are so hot
She can't dance, Jerry knew
Her lack of dancing skills was nothing new
He did not want to hurt her feelings;
She never knew what was going on.

Elaine was the name of the Lily Maid of Astolat - she couldn't even hold on to Lancelot and dance a lot. (Man, I'm good when I'm drunk!)

One of my favorite Seinfeld episodes, thanks for the laugh!

As Kramer would say, "Giddyup!"
