  • Take your baby by the hand
    And make her do a high handstand
    And take your baby by the heel
    And do the next thing that you feel

    We were so in phase
    In our dance hall days
    We were cool on craze
    When I, you, and everyone we knew
    Could believe, do, and share in what was true
    Oh, I said

    Dance hall days, love

    Take your baby by the hair
    And pull her close and there, there, there
    And take your baby by the ears
    And play upon her darkest fears

    We were so in phase
    In our dance hall days
    We were cool on craze
    When I, you, and everyone we knew
    Could believe, do, and share in what was true
    Oh, I said

    Dance hall days, love
    Dance hall days
    Dance hall days, love

    Take your baby by the wrist
    And in her mouth an amethyst
    And in her eyes two sapphires blue
    And you need her and she needs you
    And you need her and she needs you
    And you need her and she needs you
    And you need her and she needs you
    And you need her and she needs you

    We were so in phase
    In our dance hall days
    We were cool on craze
    When I, you, and everyone we knew
    Could believe, do, and share in what was true
    Oh, I said

    Dance hall days, love
    Dance hall days, love
    Dance hall days
    Dance hall days, love
    Whoa, dance hall days Writer/s: Darren Costin, Jack Hues, Nicholas Laurence Feldman

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn this day in 1984 {June 2nd} Wang Chung performed "Dance Hall Days" on the syndicated television program 'Solid Gold', hosted by Marilyn McCoo...
    At the time "Dance Hall Days" was at position #33 on Billboard's Hot Top chart, five weeks later it would peak at #16 {for 1 week} and it spent twenty two weeks on the Top 100...
    And on the day of their appearance on 'Bandstand', the song was at #1 {for 1 week} on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Songs chart...
    It reached #5 on the Canadian RPM 100 Singles chart...
    Between 1983 and 1989 the London-based trio had eight records on the Hot Top 100 chart, two made the Top 10, "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" {#2* for 1 week in 1986} and "Let's Go" {#9 for 1 week in 1987}...
    * The week "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" peaked at #2, the #1 record for that week was "Walk Like An Egyptian" by the Bangles...
  • Jp from Roanoke, VaThis song can also be heard in the movie "Bachelor Party". It is playing in the scene where Rick and the rest of the bachelor party first enter the male strip club to pull a prank on Debbie and the bachelorette party, with the help of Nick the, uh, "stick" lol.
  • Thomas from Raleigh, NcThis Song was also in a commercial for MLB 2k9 with Tim Lincecum. In the commercial Lincecum is teaching his videogame self how to be him.
