Divine – Twistin' The Night Away lyrics

"Hey, where are you going?"
"Out where?"
"Out to have a good time"
"Oh, can I go?"
"Only if you're into it."
"Into what?"

Let me tell you about a place
Somewhere out in New York way
Where the people are so gay
Twistin' the night away

Here they have a lot of fun
Putting trouble on the run
Man you'll find the old and young
Twistin' the night away

Twistin', twistin', everybody's feeling great
Twistin', twistin', twistin' the night away

Hit a man in evening clothes
How he got here I don't know
But man you oughta see him go
Twistin' the night away

He's dancing with the chick in slacks
She's mvoing up and back
Man there ain't nothing like
Twistin' the night away

(chorus 2x)

Lean up, lean back
Lean up, lean back
Walk two steps, take five
Now turn, now twist!

Lean up, lean back
Lean up, lean back
Push in, pull out
Now thrust, now twist!

Here's a fellow in blue jeans
Who's dancing with an older queen
Who's younger than her diamond rings
Twistin' the night away

Man you oughta see her go
Twistin' to the rock 'n' roll
Here you'll find the young and old
Twistin' the night away

(chorus 2x)
