  • Yes Ha-ha, ha-ha-ha ......
    Hey man (hey man), Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, Hey man (hey man)

    Tay, tay, tay, tay, t-t-t-tay-tay, tay, tay
    It's our occupation, we're a dancin' natio-ion
    We keep the pressure on every night
    Explanations are complicatio-ions
    We don't need to know the where or why
    Tay, tay, tay, tay, t-t-t-tay-tay, tay, tay

    Takin' chances, bold advance-e-es, Don't care if you think we're out of line
    Conversation is interrigatio-ion, Get out of here, we just don't have the time

    Tay, tay, tay, tay, t-t-t-tay-tay, tay, tay
    Take or leave us only please believe us
    We are never gonna be respectable (respectable)
    Like us, hate us, but you'll never change us
    We are never gonna be respectable (respectable, respectable, respectable, respectable)

    Hesitation is just frustratio-ion, Give us the music and we're alright
    On each occasion for your informatio-ion, We can look after ourselves alright

    Tay, tay, tay, tay, t-t-t-tay-tay, tay, tay
    Fascination is our sensatio-ion, We like to put ourselves on the line
    Recreation is our destinatio-ion, so don't wait up for us tonight
    Tay, tay, tay, tay, t-t-t-tay-tay, tay, tay

    Take or leave us, only please believe us
    We are never gonna be respectable (respectable)
    Like us, hate us, but you'll never change us
    We are never going to be respectable (respectable, respectable, respectable, respectable)

    Ha-ha, ha-ha-ha ......
    Hey man (hey man), Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, Hey man (hey man)

    Tay, tay, tay, tay, t-t-t-tay-tay, tay, tay
    Take or leave us, only please believe us
    We are never gonna be respectable (respectable)
    Like us, hate us, but you'll never change us
    We are never gonna be respectable (respectable)
