Well, I've been watching you stare at the floor
That guy's got two left feet
I may be wrong but you must be bored
You look like someone who I'd like to meet

I could walk over and say hello
But I think I need one more drink
Looks like you might be getting ready to go
Better find some words quick, now let me think

Well, if things don't work out by the next song
And you're looking for someone who can dance
I'll be right over there by the jukebox, a quarter in my hand
Trying to buy myself a chance

Saw my reflection in an empty glass
So I rehearsed my lines
Said I ain't looking for trouble
Well, I know you came in here with him tonight

But if things don't work out by the next song
And you're looking for someone who can dance
I'll be right over there by the jukebox with a quarter in my hand
Trying to buy myself a chance

Well, here goes nothing, I hope for something
I'm walking out 'cross the floor
I cross my fingers, I tap your shoulder
And I say I've never done this before

But if things don't work out by the next song
And you're looking for someone who can dance
I'll be right over there by the jukebox

But if things don't work out by the next song
And you're looking for someone who can dance
I'll be right over there by the jukebox, quarter in my hand
Trying to buy myself a chance
I'm trying to buy myself a chance
