You Can Dance

  • In a discotheque at dawn
    Is when it came to me
    I'd been ravin' through the night
    Lookin' for some company,
    It was the Mambo talkin'
    It's got a lot to say,
    'Do you come here often?'
    'Do you wanna play?'

    The hitchhike into Paris
    And zigzag by the Seine
    The Hollywood moment
    I'll never be the same

    You can dance

    There's a world awaiting
    Way beyond the sea
    How I love to travel
    Baby will you come with me?

    You can dance

    Jump on the table
    Slide down the pole
    You can wear your sable
    You can bare your soul

    Through Reno down to Vegas
    The casinos never close
    To the movers and the shakers
    The Tango never knows

    You can dance
    You can dance
    You can dance
    You can dance dance dance dance
    You can dance dance dance dance

    I need some inspiration

    I've got a lot of time to lose

    You can dance

    And then the dolce vita
    I find my beauty queen

    In England there's a moment
    One nation in a groove
    You can dance
    Where the music and emotion
    Will make you wanna move

    You can dance

    Take me to the river
    Try singing in the rain

    You can dance

    I like the jungle fever
    It's got me in the mood again

    You can dance

    Oh tutti frutti
    Jones bar Hollywood

    You can dance

    I like Campari soda
    I'd can can if I could

    You can dance, you can dance
    You can dance, you can dance
    You can dance, you can dance
    You can dance Writer/s: BRYAN FERRY, DAVE STEWART
