lyrics

*-marks changes from original lyrics

well I used to love you
but I swear I love you more now
I used to love you
but I swear I love you more now

let's move to Wisconsin
where we'll never grow old
we'll die young and pickled
in the beautiful cold*
(NOTE: adjective "beautiful" used on Bart's original demo, later changed to "viciously cold" in later versions)

and all our friends
will drive off the side of the road*
let's move to Wisconsin
and we'll never grow old

oh mother of Jesus
I don't want to grow old
oh mother of Jesus
I don't want to die cold

now I'm not yet 40*
but I'm still half a man*
and you're twice a woman*
the way you fall out of my hands*

let's get down and dirty
I'll be your filthy old man
let's get down and dirty
I'm your filthy old man

let's get down and dirty
I'm your filthy old man
let's get down and dirty
I'm your filthy old man

come on dance for me
dance for me
put your feet in the air
we'll do the old Wisconsin Polka
put some sweat into your hair
(NOTE: Original lyrics have "feet in the air" and "sweat into your hair" lines switched)

come on dance for me
dance for me
put your feet in the air*
we'll do the old Wisconsin Polka
get some sweat into your hair*

come on dance for me
dance for me
dance all 'round the room*
dance for me
dance for me
I'm looking at you*

just dance
dance for me
put your feet in the air*
do that old Wisconsin Polka
ain't no reason to be scared*

come on dance for me
dance for me
put your feet in the air*
we'll do the old Wisconsin Polka
get some sweat into your hair*

oh mother of Jesus
I don't want to grow old
oh mother of Jesus
I don't want to die cold

come on dance for me
dance for me
and die in the beautiful cold*
do the ol' Wisconsin Polka
and we don't ever grow old*
