  • I caught you smiling
    I know I've seen you here before
    How come you're hiding?
    Hey don't you want to hit the floor?
    The place is crowded
    Or maybe you don't like the beat
    I got a two-track playing in my head
    So let me take you somewhere else instead
    Dancing in the sheets
    Dancing in the sheets

    Grab your coat and wave goodbye to your friends
    I want to take you where the night never ends
    I feel the need to sweep you off of your feet
    You and me, we should be dancing in the sheets
    Dancing in the sheets

    We feel the rhythm
    We've got the music on our side
    If we go with 'em
    I'll bet we'll have a wonderful ride
    Your hands are cold
    So maybe we could make some heat
    Love is always born on a chance
    So wrap around me and baby let's dance
    Dancing in the sheets
    Dancing in the sheets

    Grab your coat and wave goodbye to your friends
    I want to take you where the night never ends
    I feel the need to sweep you off of your feet
    You and me, we should be dancing in the sheets
    Dancing in the sheets

    Grab your coat and wave goodbye to your friends
    I want to take you where the night never ends
    I feel the need to sweep you off of your feet
    You and me, we should be dancing in the sheets
    Dancing in the sheets
    Dancing in the sheets
    Dancing in the sheets
    Dancing in the sheets
