We can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
Well they're no friends of mine
I say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
And we can dance and sing
We can dance

We can go when we want to
The night is young and so am I
And we can dress real neat from our hats to our feet
And surprise 'em with the victory cry

I Say we can act if want to if we don't nobody will
And you can act real rude and totally removed
And I can act like an imbecile

I say we can dance, we can dance
Everything is out of control
We can dance, we can dance
We're doing it wall to wall
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody look at your hands
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody's takin' the chance
Safety dance
Oh well the safety dance
Ah yes the safety dance

We can dance if we want to
We've got all your life and mine
As long as we abuse it, never gonna lose it
Everything'll work out right
I say, we can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
Well they're no friends of mine

I say we can dance, we can dance
Everything's out control
We can dance, we can dance we're doing it wall to wall
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody look at your hands
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody's takin' the chance

Well the safety dance
The safety dance
The safety dance
