Holding on to the rhythm
I'm standing in my leather and lace
People move to the left, and
Move to the right, and
The whole place starts to shake

Without a net on a real high wire
I'm stepping out with my heels on fire

I started dancing with a stranger
Moving to the break of day
Dancing with a stranger
And I just got swept away

Letting go my inhibitions
Is harder to do than say
But I surrender to the beat
I start shuffling my feet
When I hear that music play

I trip the light fantastic
I touch the sky and it feels like magic

I started dancing with a stranger
Moving to the break of day
Dancing with a stranger
And I just got swept away

Give me a dance, dance
Dancing with a stranger
And it takes my breath away

I ain't looking for mister right
It doesn't matter to me
There's something in the air
Electric I like
Igniting endlessly

I started to dance...

Without a net on a real high wire
I'm stepping out with my heels on fire

I started dancing with a stranger
Moving to the break of day
Dancing with a stranger
And I just got swept away...
