(Gary Brooker / Pete Sinfield)

Well she looked me up and down
I said I'd just got into town
She said welcome it's a friendly kind of place
So I asked her if by chance
She knew where a man could dance
She said Yes Sir and a smile lit up her face

I said did she
She said I do
I said would she
She said with you
I said well now if that's OK
But if you wanna boogie baby
Lets stop wasting time this way

Get up and dance you newer know what you might find
Get up and dance nobody cares nobody minds
Get up and dance you in the corner don't be shy
Get up and dance let the music get you high
Get up and dance get up and dance

Well we danced the night away
I said I have no place to stay
She said well you've got a friendly kind of face
So I asked her if by chance
She could help a man who danced
She said Yes Sir I know just the place

I said did she
She said I do
I said would she
She said with you
I said well now if that's OK
But if we're gonna make it baby
Lets stop wasting time this way

Get up and dance go and find a hand to hold
Get up and dance you know it stops you gettin' old
Get up and dance there ain't a thing you've got to loose
Get up and dance I want you rockin' in your shoes
Get up and dance get up and dance
