The summer air was heavy and sweet
You and I on a crowded street
There was music everywhere
I can see us there

In a happy little foreign town
Where the stars are upside down
A half a world away
Far far away


I remember
You were laughing
We were so in love
We were so in love
And the band played
Songs that we had never heard
But we danced anyway
We never understood the words
We just sang "oh, la la la..."
And we danced anyway

They say you can't go back
But, baby, I don't believe that
Come along with me
Come on and dance with me

Maybe if I hold you close
Baby, we could just let go
Of these things that tie us down
We'll come back around

You remember
We were laughing
We were so in love
So in love
And the band played
Songs that we had never heard
But we danced anyway
We never understood the words
We just sang "oh, la la la..."
And we danced anyway

You remember
You were laughing
We were so in love
We were so in love
And the band played
Songs that we had never heard
But we danced anyway
We never understood the words
We just sang "oh, la la la..."
And we danced anyway
