Dance!
If you will
Dance!
On your capitol hill
Dance!
If you can
Dance!
Like a twentieth century man

Take the people by the throat
Give 'em a reason to give you a vote
Take your audience up on stage
Let them think you're a sage

Dance!
If you want
Dance!
Like you've got a house to haunt
Dance!
Like a freak
Dance!
Like you needed it all week

Take your people by the hand
Tell 'em you'll get 'em to the promised land
Take your woman in the heat of the night
Make her think you're right
C'mon!

Dance!
Like a chimpanzee
Dance!
In the 'land of the free'
Dance!
Like a russian ballet
Dance!
Like a funky situe

Let 'em know that you're well read
Quote the things that jesus said
Lift your face and your whiskey neat
To get you up on your feet
C'mon!
