Dirty Rotten Scoundrels: A Challenge

Right, here's a challenge for music fans/movie buffs out there.

In the brilliant movie Dirty Rotten Scoundrels there's a scene where Michael Caine starts playing Tennis with Glenne Headly on the pretense that the more fun they have the more likely they are to "cure" Steve. They then go on to do other fun activities like horse riding and a go to a disco while Steve Martin is in his wheelchair looking on in disgust.

A song kicks in during this, it's a disco type thing. I remember it having lyrics, but I found a clip of the movie on youtube where there are no lyrics. So either my memory is faulty or there are two versions of the scene/song.

I love this film and that whole scene. I love it when the two English sailors get really angry with Caine's behaviour and try to play the good Samaritans. "I'd like to smack him one".

Anyway... does anyone know the name of the song and who did it?

For what it's worth this version (and it could be the only version) is here around 2:30.
