We can dance if we want to We can leave your friends behind 'Cause your friends don't dance And if they don't dance Well, they're no friends of mine
Say, we can go where we want to A place where they will never find And we can act like we come From out of this world Leave the real one far behind
And we can dance Or sing
We can go when we want to The night is young and so am I And we can dress real neat From our hats to our feet And surprise 'em with the victory cry
Say, we can act if we want to If we don't, nobody will And you can act real rude and totally removed And I can act like an imbecile
And say, we can dance, we can dance Everything's out of control We can dance, we can dance They're doing it from pole to pole We can dance, we can dance Everybody look at your hands We can dance, we can dance Everybody's taking the chance Safety dance Oh well, the safety dance Ah yes, the safety dance
We can dance if we want to We've got all your life and mine As long as we abuse it, never gonna lose it Everything'll work out right
I say, we can dance if we want to We can leave your friends behind Because your friends don't dance And if they don't dance Well, they're no friends of mine
I say, we can dance, we can dance Everything's out of control We can dance, we can dance We're doing it from pole to pole We can dance, we can dance Everybody look at your hands We can dance, we can dance Everybody's taking the chance
Oh well, the safety dance Ah yes, the safety dance Oh well, the safety dance Oh well, the safety dance Oh yes, the safety dance Oh, the safety dance, yeah Well, it's the safety dance It's the safety dance Well, it's the safety dance Oh, it's the safety dance Oh, it's the safety dance Oh, it's the safety dance

Nickster from Minneapolis, MnBeavis and Butthead watched the video, leading Butthead to comment: “He keeps saying he can dance, but it’s like, he CAN’T dance!”
Jerry from Obx NcThe song was prominently mentioned in an episode of Futurama (Episode 53: 'Future Stock'). Phillip Fry makes the comment: "That dance wasn't as safe as they said it was."
Will H from Washington Stateyou forgot biodome
Lance from London, United KingdomAs if we hadn't "spotted" men without hats songs in enough places I even found them in a 2004 scifi book titled "Death of a Sanitation Engineer" by Bob Pellerin. Turns out Bob went to McGill University and so did some of the Men without hats members (Ivan I think). There's a picture of the author with Ivan on facebook.
Does anyone know what the song "Girl with the Silicon Eyes" is about??? I'm guessing it's not about the scifi book's character becoming an android. LOL
Esskayess from Dallas, TxThis song was fun; 'Pop Goes the World' even moreso.
Susan from Airdrie, AbI'd love to know where in England they filmed the video. Absolutely gorgeous!!
Phillipo from Montrea, QcThe band had a talented keyboardist named Alan McCarthy later fired in a lineup shakeup a couple of years later as the 2 brothers (who were also constantly feuding) were the only ones who stick in every incarnation. McCarthy was suspected by a few to have been instrumental in coming up with the sound of this ditty as he had a ferocious aptitude for the gizmos required for such music. He died of AIDS a few years after.
James Wilson from Trenton, NjThis song was mentioned on an episode of the medical comedy "Scrubs". If I remember right Turk was singing this and then his wife, Carla, complained to Elliott Reid about it.
Juan from La Mirada, CaIn South Park, Butters dances to this song in the homage to the 80's episode entitled Ass-pen.
Chase from Miami, FlIf you notice all the men in the video are wearing hats and band members appear periodically in the backround without hats
Samuel from Peoria, Belgiumgreat song
Billy from Perris, CaThis song was also featured in Family Guy as a distraction to party guests.
Robert from Houston, TxIn the sci-fi series Futurama, lead character Fry observes that this dance wasn't as safe as everyone said it was.
Mark from London, EnglandA shaped picture disc of this was released, with a different version of the song on the A-side and a new song, Security, on the flip.
"Cruise" climbed from 6-5 on the Hot 100 in its 34th week. In doing so it set a record for the slowest ascent to the Top 5 in the chart's history, which was beaten by Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" 42-week clamber to #4 three weeks later.
