Big Noise From Winnetka by Bette Midler

This is the story of a young girl who was the Einstein of the dance
They called her Big Noise from Winnetka, against her no one stood a chance
Big Noise blew in from Winnetka, stole each fellow’s heart and then
Big Noise blew in from Winnetka, Big Noise blew right out again

Boys were sighing, their girlfriends crying, hearts were pounding when
The Big Noise dances, hence romances, it’s just astounding when
Big Noise blew in from Winnetka, Big Noise blew right out again Read More
