  • I like to dance all night
    It summons the day
    That's how I play
    Yeah that's how I play

    I said who are you
    No matter who you are
    So we dance all night
    And dance all day

    I say
    I say

    We're gonna fuel the fire
    We're gonna stoke it up
    We're gonna sip this wine
    And pass the cup

    Who needs avenues
    Who needs reservoirs
    We're gonna show this town
    How to kiss these stars

    I say
    I say

    I'm on a hunt to kill
    I'm gonna skin the hide
    A yelp and scream
    And away I ride

    I'll never top this view
    I'll never fall aground
    It's all for you
    For what you found

    I say
    I say
    I say
    I say

    It's gonna take your hand
    It's gonna drive you home
    It's gonna keep on, keep on, keep on
    And then forever roam. Writer/s: CALEB FOLLOWILL, JARED FOLLOWILL, MATTHEW FOLLOWILL, NATHAN FOLLOWILL

  • Sidnei Fraga from BrazilAccording to this website (songfacts.com) in the first line of the song Caleb says "I like to dance all night and some of the day", but when you look for the lyrics, all these kind of websites show like this "I like to dance all night, summons the day"...why do they write "summons the day" instead of "some of the day"? Does anyone notice it? Cheers mates!
