The Miracles – I Gotta Dance To Keep From Crying lyrics

Come on everybody, we’re gonna have a party
I’m tired of sittin’ around feelin’ blue

Gather 'round you swingers and friends
Help me forget my hurtin' within
About the only girl I ever loved
The only one I’m thinkin’ of and

I gotta dance (dance) to keep from cryin' (crying)
I’ve gotta dance (dance) to keep from cryin’ (crying)

Whoa, do The Monkey like this (The Monkey)
Do The Twist (The Twist)
Everybody, it goes like this

You gotta dance for me swingers (Alright)
Dance for me swingers (Alright)

Because, I'm so lonely
Since we parted
Our memories leave me
So broken hearted

I gotta dance (dance) to keep from cryin' (crying)
I’ve gotta dance (dance) to keep from cryin’ (crying)
Oh, ooh, Do The Bird (The Bird)
Do The Fly (The Fly)
Come on, gang (Bye, bye, bye)
Dance (Oh, yeah)

Do The Clam, can’t you feel
Everybody dance, don’t sit still
Dance for me swingers (Alright)
Dance for me swingers (Alright)

Heartaches have gathered 'round me
Misery, has surely found me
I gotta dance to keep from cryin' (crying)
I gotta dance to keep from crying' (crying)

Whoa-oh-oh, gather round me girls and boys
I think we’ll make it up, do alright
So get soft, o-ah, just a little bit soft

O-ah, just a little bit soft, soft, soft
Just a little bit softer, softer, softer, ooo
(Just a little bit higher)
Ooo, just a little bit softer
(Just a little bit higher)
I guess, I’ve gotta turn it up
(Just a little bit higher)
I guess, I’ve gotta turn it up
(Just a little bit higher)
I guess, I’ve gotta turn it up, higher
(Just a little bit higher)
Baby, higher
(Just a little bit higher)
Oh, baby, oh

Don’t mope and dance for me swingers
(Alright)
Dance for me swingers
(Alright)
I’ll do that Monkey, I’ll do that Slide
(Alright)
Everybody
(Alright)
Do The Bird, do The Fly
(Alright)
Come on, you can do it right
(Alright)
Dance with me swingers
(Alright)
Dance with me swingers . . .
