  • (Murder)

    It's murder on the dance floor
    But you better not kill the groove
    DJ, gonna burn this goddamn house right down

    I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
    About your kind
    And so and so and so and so and so and so and so
    I'll have to play

    If you think you're gettin' away
    I will prove you wrong
    I'll take you all the way
    Boy, just come along
    Hear me when I say
    Hey

    It's murder on the dance floor
    But you better not kill the groove
    Hey-hey, hey-hey
    It's murder on the dance floor
    But you better not steal the moves
    DJ, gonna burn this goddamn house right down

    Oh, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
    There may be others
    And so and so and so and so and so and so and so
    You'll just have to pray

    If you think you're gettin' away
    I will prove you wrong
    I'll take you all the way
    Stay another song
    I'll blow you all away
    Hey

    It's murder on the dance floor
    But you better not kill the groove
    Hey-hey, hey-hey
    It's murder on the dance floor
    But you better not steal the moves
    DJ, gonna turn this house around somehow
    Murder on the dance floor (on the dance floor)
    But you better not kill the groove (murder)
    Hey-hey, hey-hey
    It's murder on the dance floor (on the dance floor)
    But you better not steal the moves (murder)
    DJ, gonna burn this god damn house right down

    (Go, go, go, go)
    (Go, go, go, go)
    (Go, go, go, go)
    (Go, go, go, go)
    (Go, go, go, go)
    (Go, go, go, go)
    (Go, go, go, go)
    (Go, go, go, go)
    (Go, go, go, go)

    Don't think you'll get away
    I will prove you wrong
    I'll take you all the way
    Boy, just come along
    Hear me when I say
    Hey

    It's murder on the dance floor
    But you better not kill the groove (murder)
    It's murder on the dance floor
    But you better not steal the moves (murder)
    DJ, gonna burn this goddamn house right down

    It's murder on the dance floor
    But you better not kill the groove
    Hey-hey, hey-hey
    It's murder on the dance floor
