These are hard times we're living in Nobody cuts you any slack We got Space Age machinery, Stone Age emotions Today a man had better watch his back Everybody's selling somethin', the baron and the bumpkin A man has got to fight for what is his If what they're offering to you looks too good to be true You can bet your bottom dollar that it is
No, thank you I don't think so I think I'm smellin' a rat Don't tell me what you're gonna do for me 'Cause I've been there done that
Lady Luck's been good to me I'm as grateful as can be Never thought this crazy ride would ever last And though nostalgia is fine, I respectfully decline To spend my future living in the past I've been carrying my load down this same old rocky road Every day I'm getting deeper in a rut Workin' overtime, now a dollar's worth a dime And everybody wants a bigger cut
No, thank you I don't think so You must think I'm blind as a bat I sure appreciate what you're tryin' to do for me But I've been there, done that
B.S. blaring from the radio, the TV Hot wind blowin' off the hill It's a mystery to me we can't agree to disagree It's lookin' like we never, ever will
Like a drunkard in the night, swingin' left and swingin' right Republican or Democrat Well, I ain't got no love for none of the above 'Cause I've been there, done that
No, thank you I don't think so It's a little too pat Don't tell me to take it easy 'Cause I've been there, done that
No, thank you I don't think so There's nothin' under your hat No, I won't be in your movie 'Cause I've been there, done that 'Cause I've been there, done that I've been there, done that
ABBA's Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson conceived "Dancing Queen" as a dance song with the working title "Boogaloo," drawing inspiration from the 1974 George McCrae disco hit "Rock Your Baby." Their manager Stig Anderson came up with the title "Dancing Queen."

If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
