Text & Musik: Benny Andersson, Stig Anderson, Bjorn Ulvaeus
Originally performed by ABBA
From "Dick" soundtrack

[you can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the dancing queen]

You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the dancing queen

Friday night and the lights are low
Looking out for the place to go
Where they play the right music, getting in the swing
You come in to look for a king
Anybody could be that guy
Night is young and the music's high
With a bit of rock music, everything is fine
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance

Chorus
You are the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
Oh yeah
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the dancing queen

You're a teaser, you turn 'em on
Leave them burning and then you're gone
Looking out for another, anyone will do
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance

Chorus
You are the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the dancing queen
Dig in the dancing queen
Dig in the dancing queen
Dig in the dancing queen
