  • Yeah, I was just hanging out
    Some little west coast town
    Found a bar out by the sand, so I made my way in
    First thing that caught my eye, like nothing I'd ever seen
    Sunburned auburn air the California dream
    Yeah, she was shaking them hips
    To some old Motown song
    I couldn't say anything so I sang along

    She was a heartache on the dance floor (heartache on the dance floor)
    Yeah, she's moving through my mind (moving through my mind)
    I gotta know her name and I gotta see her again
    She's got me wondering, yeah I'm just wondering
    Where she at, where she at, where she at tonight?
    Where she at, where she at, where she at tonight, oh yeah?

    So I just hung around this little west coast town
    I dropped by every night, I stayed till closing time
    My little mystery, that girl is killing me
    So I put on a song just to sing along

    She was a heartache on the dance floor (heartache on the dance floor)
    Yeah, she's moving through my mind (moving through my mind)
    I gotta know her name and I gotta see her again
    She's got me wondering, yeah I'm just wondering
    Where she at, where she at, where she at tonight?
    Where she at, where she at, where she at tonight?
    She's got me mesmerized, she's all I'm thinking about
    All I think about, think about, think about

    So I'm right here right now
    Humming this little song
    If I could say a thing
    I'd want you to know

    You were a heartache on the dance floor (heartache on the dance floor)
    Yeah, you're moving through my mind (moving through my mind)
    Oh, I gotta know your name and I gotta see you again
    And if you're listening, listening, listening
    Where you at, where you at, where you at tonight?
    Where you at, where you at, where you at tonight?
    Girl, I'm hanging around this little town
    Where you at, where you at, where you at tonight?
    Where you at, where you at, where you at tonight, oh? Writer/s: Bart Butler, Jonathan Ryan Pardi, William Brice Long
