On the floors of Tokyo
Down in London town's a go-go
With the record selection
And the mirror's reflection
I'm a-dancing with myself

Oh, when there's no one else in sight
In the crowded, lonely night
Well, I wait so long for my love vibration
And I'm dancing with myself

Oh, oh, oh dancing with myself
Oh, oh, oh dancing with myself
Well there's nothing to lose
And there's nothing to prove
And I'm dancing with myself
Oh, oh, oh, oh

If I looked all over the world
And there's every type of girl
But your empty eyes seem to pass me by
And leave me dancing with myself

So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me time to think
If I had a chance, I'd ask one to dance
And I'd be dancing with myself

Oh, oh, oh dancing with myself
Oh, oh, oh dancing with myself
Well there's nothing to lose
And there's nothing to prove

And I'm dancing with myself
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

(solo)

Well, if I looked all over the world
And there's every type of girl
But your empty eyes seem to pass me by
And leave me dancing with myself

So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me time to think
If I had a chance, I'd ask the world to dance
And I'll be dancing with myself

Oh, oh, oh dancing with myself
Oh, oh, oh dancing with myself
If I had a chance, I'd ask the world to dance
If I had a chance, I'd ask the world to dance
If I had a chance, I'd ask the world to dance

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

If I looked all over the world
And there's every type of girl
But your empty eyes seem to pass me by
And leave me dancing with myself

So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me time to think
If I had a chance, I'd ask the world to dance
And I'd be dancing with myself

Oh, oh, oh dancing with myself
Oh, oh, oh dancing with myself
If I had a chance, I'd ask the world to dance
If I had a chance, I'd ask the world to dance
If I had a chance, I'd ask the world to dance
