  • Lyrics
  • You know this boogie is for real

    I used to put my faith in worship
    But then my chance to get to Heaven slipped
    I used to worry about the future
    But then I threw my caution to the wind
    I had no reason to be care free
    No no no, until I took a trip to the other side of town
    Yeah yeah yeah, you know I heard that boogie rhythm
    Hey, I had no choice but to get down down down down

    Dance, nothing left for me to do but dance
    Off these bad times I'm going through just dance
    Got canned heat in my heels tonight, baby

    I feel the thunder, see the lightning
    I know this anger's heaven sent
    So I've got to hang out all my hang-ups
    Because of the boogie I feel so hell bent, hey hey
    It's just an instant gut reaction, that I got
    I know I never ever felt like this before
    I don't know what to do
    But then that's nothing new
    Stuck between hell and high water
    I need a cure to make it through

    Hey dancing nothing left for me to do but dance
    Off these bad times I'm going through just dance
    Hey got canned heat in my heels tonight baby
    You know know know I'm gonna dance yeah
    Off the nasty things that people say
    Dance yeah but I'm gonna make it anyway
    Dance yeah got canned heat up my heels tonight baby
    You know I've got canned heat up my heels

    You know this boogie is for real

    Only the wind can blow the answer
    And she cries to me when I'm asleep
    She says you know that you can go much faster
    I know that peoples' talk can be so cheap
    I got this voodoo child inveined on me
    I'm gonna use my power to ascend
    You know I got these running heels to use
    Sometimes there's no way I lose
    I was born to run and built to last
    You've never seen my feet cause they move so fast

    Dance yeah, hey nothing left for me to do but dance
    Off these bad times I'm going through just dance, hey
    Got canned heat in my heels tonight baby

    Hey I've got to dance yeah
    Off the nasty things that people say
    Dance yeah, but I'm gonna make it anyway
    Dance yeah, got canned heat up my heels tonight baby

    You know this boogie is for real, got
    So much canned heat in my heels yeah
    Gonna dance, gonna dance my blues away tonight
    You know I'm gonna dance my blues away
    You know this boogie is for real, got
