Dancing the night away
Dancing the night away
Dancing the night away
Dancing the night away
So you want to believe
Everything that you read
And you think that you're makin' the grade
(and) just when you're getting it made
You're still in love with her
She'd love you to kiss her
Hopin' you'll miss her
By takin' your mind off the load
Just when you're ready to go
You turn your back on her
You just got your mind on the things ahead
At last you're gonna be free
You'll only miss her
Just after you kiss her
Dancing the night away
Dancing the night away
Dancing the night away
Dancing the night away
Dancing the night away
Dancing the night away
So you turn on the smiles
'cause you think of the time
And nobody knows who you are
You don't think you'll get very far
I don't even know your name
At last they accept you
In case you go next year
And ask you to reach for the sky
And just when you're ready to die
They turn their back on you
So they put you on ice
In survival hotel
And wish you would die from the cold
When all you want is a night alone
Dancing the night away
Dancing the night away
Dancing the night away
Dancing the night away
Dancing the night away
Dancing the night away
Dancing, and the song you sing
Dancing, every move you make
Dancing, makes my body go
Dancing, right across the floor
Dancing
Dancing
Dancing
