  • They say oh my god I see the way you shine
    Take your hand, my dear, and place them both in mine
    You know you stopped me dead when I was passing by
    And now I beg to see you dance just one more time

    Ooh I see you, see you, see you every time
    And oh my I, I like your style
    You, you make me, make me, make me wanna cry
    And now I beg to see you dance just one more time

    So I say
    Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me oh oh oh
    I've never seen anybody do the things you do before
    They say move for me, move for me, move for me ay ay ay
    And when you're done I'll make you do it all again

    I said oh my god I see you walking by
    Take my hands, my dear, and look me in my eyes
    Just like a monkey I've been dancing my whole life
    And you just beg to see me dance just one more time

    Ooh I see you, see you, see you every time
    And oh my I, I like your style
    You, you make me, make me, make me wanna cry
    And now I beg to see you dance just one more time

    So I say
    Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me oh oh oh
    I've never seen anybody do the things you do before
    They say move for me, move for me, move for me ay ay ay
    And when you're done I'll make you do it all again

    They say
    Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me oh oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
    I've never seen anybody do the things you do before
    They say move for me, move for me, move for me ay ay ay
    And when you're done I'll make you do it all again

    Ooh (all again, all again)
    Woah-oh, woah-oh, oh
    Ooh (all again, all again)
    Ah ah, ah ah, ay

    They say
    Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me oh oh oh
    I've never seen anybody do the things you do before
    They say move for me, move for me, move for me ay ay ay
    And when you're done I'll make you do it all again

    They say
    Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me oh oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
    I've never seen anybody do the things you do before
    They say move for me, move for me, move for me ay ay ay
    And when you're done I'll make you do it all again

  • Lolbitgamez from Tarboro NcWow! I did not know this!!!! I love this song :D
  • Siddhant Adhikari (again) from Nepala lot of my friends are addicted to this song and want to hear it again and again
  • Leigha from Virginia My brother and I love this song
  • Juana from Atlantic City, N.jIm in love w/ this song.
  • Siddhant Adhikari from NepalGreat it helped me a lot at singing
  • Me from HereIt is literally the worst song and video clip I've ever heard and seen. I fail to see the talent.
  • Jackie Young from UkI was hoping this song had a higher moral value re the real dance Monkeys meaning those little creatures who are abused by tourist touting brutes who treat them badly to make then dance for idiot humans for hours and who think it's entertainment. Some of the words suggested it could be about them, but I am disappointed that it's not.
  • AnonymousI love it
  • AnonymousI love this song
  • Hine from 7476i love the song so much i also sing it at school love it so cute song
  • Crazy Caterpillar from C.aYeah Chill out C.R from U.S and by the way this song was the song my brother died listening to.... we were ice fishing but this was his favorite song.
  • Haley from Us C.r. from us, chill its just a song it could be true but most artists don't credit their writers anyway chill karen
  • Zakanis from OdessaAs a young person whose talent was exploited before I even knew what the word “exploitation” meant, these lyrics speak to me.
    I have literally been given hundreds upon hundreds of USD to “dance for them”.
    They make you dance for them, they grip your soul, they say dance and look away, you look back and it’s dark. You look back and They’re gone.
  • C.r. from Usshe wrote the music but the lyrics she did not write. but the author is not credited. The song is one of many and is about being watched and doing weird things because of it..like dance moves. See the dance monkey dance video on youtube chorio by lana who is the one who copied the dance from the monkey who wrote the song. Its funny because what else can you do when people are watching..except entertain, or b funny and that goes with the lyrics never seen anybody do the things you do.
