  • I was travelin' down the road, feelin' hungry and cold
    I saw a sign sayin' food and drinks for everyone
    So naturally I thought I would take me a look inside
    I saw so much food, there was water comin' from my eye

    Yeah there was ham an there was turkey, there was caviar
    An long tall glasses, with wine up to yar

    An then somebody grabbed me, threw me outta my chair
    Said before you can eat, you gotta dance like Fred Astaire

    You know I can't dance, you know I can't dance
    You know I can't dance, you know I can't dance
    I can't dance

    I am a man of the road -- a hobo by name
    I don't seek entertainment, just poultry and game
    But if its all the same to you, then yes I will try my hand
    If you were as hungry as me then I'm sure you would understand

    Now wait a minute
    (Let me see now)

    Of course I can dance of course I can dance
    I'm sure I can dance, I'm sure I can dance..
    I can dance

    I can dance
    I really hit the floor
    Ah feels good
    Look at me dancin

    I did a two-step, quick-step and a bossa nova
    A little victor Silvester, and a rudy valentino
    You should a seen me movin, right across the floor
    Hand me down my tuxedo, next week I'm comin' back for more

    I can dance -- oh yes! I can dance
    Look at me dancin' the floor movin'
    I feel good -- I can dance
    I can dance, I can dance, I can dance. Writer/s: David Alexander Courtney, Leo Sayer

  • Dina from America I always loved this song!! When I was pregnant with my son, I told my husband that my child was doin that song on my bladder!!! Told my son that when he was old enough to understand!! Great song!!!
  • Bill from UsOne of the few songs where I knew all the words. I think we all did and that is why it was a hit. Plus the catchy piano rhythm. A real show tune.
