Dance in My Pants (edit)

Girl: When I woke up this morning and I looked out my window
I could see the sky was cloudy and gray
There was a chill in the air and a pain in my heart
And the thunder it was coming my way
Oh, it was looking pretty bad and I was so alone
And there wasn’t any place to go
But now I’m out of the blue, I know what I got to do
And something in me is starting to grow
I can feel it in me starting to grow grow grow grow grow…

I got dance in my pants
Every time I feel the power in a radio wave I turn it up all the way
I got dance in pants
Every time I see the glory of a good-looking face
Well, I just got to say: Hey now
Don’t you worry, baby, everything will be fine
And we got nothing but the best and we got nothing but time
And there’ll always be a time when they’ll be waiting in line
To be dancing, dancing
You don’t say nothing all week
You’re getting ready for dancing, dancing
And now you’re body really knows how to speak
You’re getting ready
Come on, take a chance
You got a whole lotta style and a load of romance
And me, me, me… I got dance in my pants…
I got dance in my pants…
I got dance in my pants…

Boy: I’m a lover not a dancer
I’m a lover not a dancer
Don’t want to be on my feet when I can be on my back
Don’t want to be on the floor when I can be in the sack
I’m a lover not a dancer
I’m a lover not a dancer
I’m just a little bit tired if you know what I mean
Don’t want to be in a crowd when I can be in a dream
I’m a lover not a dancer, baby
Baby, let me prove it to you
Baby, let me prove it to you

Boy: I don’t care what you say
Ain’t nothing going to get me out on that floor!
Girl: Oh baby, you know there may be some moves
That you haven’t ever seen yet…
Boy: No way, Jose!
Girl: Well, I got a new step for you—
Made it up all by myself
I bet you never tried this before! …

Boy:Oh, Jeez…
Girl:Come on
Boy:Oh, Jeez…
Girl:Come on!
Boy:Oh, Jeez…

Girl: Now that you know how it’s done, it’s only a matter of practice!
Boy: Well, I could sure use some of that practice…
Girl: Now that you know how it’s done, it’s only a matter of practice!

Boy: Grow, grow, grow, grow…
Grow, grow, grow, grow…
Now, now, now, now…

I got dance in my pants
Every time I feel the power in a radio wave I turn it up all the way
I got dance in pants
Every time I see the glory of a good-looking face
Well, I just got to say: Hey now
Don’t you worry, baby, everything will be fine
And we got nothing but the best and we got nothing but time
And there’ll always be a time when they’ll be waiting in line
To be dancing, dancing
You don’t say nothing all week
You’re getting ready for dancing, dancing
And now you’re body really knows how to speak
You’re getting ready for dancing, dancing
You don’t say nothing all week
You’re getting ready for dancing, dancing
And now you’re body really knows how to speak
You’re getting ready
Come on, take a chance
You got a whole lotta style and a load of romance
And me, me, me… I got dance in my pants…

Oooh, I know there’s dance after death
And I don’t ever wanna be rescued
And I don’t ever wanna be saved
I got the feeling that I’m gonna be alive forever
Dancing on the edge of a grave
Dancing on the edge of a grave

Both: And I don’t ever wanna be rescued
And I don’t ever wanna be saved
I got the feeling that I’m gonna be alive forever
Dancing on the edge of a grave
Dancing on the edge of a grave…
