City Boy – The World Loves A Dancer lyrics

Applying her make-up and wanting to wake up,
She slips into something tight.
With rouge on her ace, lipstick in place
She dresses to ace the light:
Humming a tune and leaving her room
She's ready to brave the night.

The world loves a dancer, moving in time
The world loves a dancer, the moon in her eyes.
The world loves a dancer, step into the light.

Through living with losers the tools and the boozers
Are sleeping outside her door.
They're all Marion Brandos with novelty tangos
Who polish their shoes on the floor.
With Lavender Lovers who laugh undercovers
And dance when the crowd calls more.


Just for a moment, caught up in romance,
She silently takes the floor.
She's dancing a slow one, partnering no-one
And answering all the applause.
