  • She was a be-bop baby on a hard day's night.
    She was hangin' on Johnny , he was holdin' on tight
    I could feel her coming from a mile away.
    There was no use talking, there was nothing to say
    When the band began to play and play.

    And we danced like a wave on the ocean, romanced
    We were liars in love and we danced
    Swept away for a moment by chance
    And we danced and danced danced.

    I met my be-bop baby at the Union Hall
    She cold dance all night and shake the paint off the walls.
    But when I saw her smile across a crowded room
    Well I knew we'd have to leave the party soon
    As the band began to play out of tune.

    And we danced like a wave on the ocean, romanced
    We were liars in love and we danced
    Swept away for a moment by chance
    And we danced and danced danced.

    The endless beat she's walking my way
    Hear the music fade when she says
    Are we getting too close, do we dare to get closer
    The room is spinning as she whispers my name

    And we danced like wave on the ocean, romanced
    We were liars in love and we danced
    Swept away for a moment by chance
    And we danced, danced, danced. Writer/s: ERIC BAZILIAN, ERIC M. BAZILIAN, ROB HYMAN, ROBERT ANDREW HYMAN

  • Mitch from New YorkLove this song - reminds me of my college days.
  • Bill from Philadelphia I can see a similarity with The Beatles... I saw her standing there.
  • Brian from Boston, MaThis is good song. Yes it's pop music but its a good pop song. I realize this will never as "Important" or as significant as pink floyd The Beatles The Stones The Who or any band of that calibur but I think sometimes pop music gets a bad wrap.I have always spoken of the importance of good music. I have always been against "manufactured" music Disco, Electronica, Dance music bubblegum pop and all that. However I don't think this song fits into any of those catagories. I think this song has a good melody [something a lot of music today lacks] I also like the guitar in this song. To those who like this song I say you have nothing to be ashamed of it's good music
  • Jeff from Austin, Txtimeless pop gem, this song is.
  • Kevin from Reading , PaThis is pretty sophomoric stuff. I'm from the Philly area and liked the group when they came out, but it just seems they didn't know to progress or grow into more mature musicians. "Time After Time" and "Fightin' on the Same Side" are still wonderful songs, but ultimately these guys were pretty limited. They were lucky to have had three or four hits. They're in their 50s and are apparently still playing their teeny bopper type music. Kind of pathetic, in a way.
  • Steve from St. Louis, MoI heared that the video for this song, which took place at drive in, was inspired by a Hooters visit to a radio station in St. Louis, Mo. KSHE-95's old studio, which was known as the "radio shack" because it was so small and old, used to be located next to the 66 drive-in theatre and during a 1985 promotional visit, the band saw the drive in and it gave them the idea for the video. KSHE moved a few years later to a new studio, and of course, the drive-in closed and is now a shopping center.
  • Debra from New Galilee, PaI really have always loved the Hooters.Thanks for the information.
