Lyrics

Wake up in the morning with a head like, "What ya done?"
This used to be the life, but I don't need another one
You like cuttin' up and carrying on, you wear them gowns
So how come I feel so lonely when you're up getting down?

So I'll play along when I hear that special song
I'm gonna be the one who gets it right
You'd better move when you're swayin' round the room
Looks like the magic's only ours tonight

But I don't feel like dancin' when the old Joanna plays
My heart could take a chance, but my two feet can't find a way
You'd think that I could muster up a little soft-shoe gentle sway
But I don't feel like dancin', no sir, no dancin' today

Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
Even if I find nothin' better to do
Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
Why'd you pick a tune when I'm not in the mood?

Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
I'd rather be home with the one in the bed till dawn, with you

Cities come and cities go, just like the old empires
When all you do is change your clothes and call that versatile
You got so many colours, make a blind man so confused
Then why can't I keep up when you're the only thing I lose?

So I'll just pretend that I know which way to bend
And I'm gonna tell the whole world that you're mine
Just please understand, when I see you clap your hands
If you stick around I'm sure that I'll be fine

But I don't feel like dancin' when the old Joanna plays
My heart could take a chance, but my two feet can't find a way
You'd think that I could muster up a little soft-shoe gentle sway
But I don't feel like dancin', no sir, no dancin' today

Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
Even if I find nothin' better to do
Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
Why'd you pick a tune when I'm not in the mood?

Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
I'd rather be home with the one in the bed till dawn, with you

You can't make me dance around
But your two-step makes my chest pound
Just lay me down as you float away into the shimmer light

But I don't feel like dancin' when the old Joanna plays
My heart could take a chance, but my two feet can't find a way
You'd think that I could muster up a little soft-shoe gentle sway
But I don't feel like dancin', no sir, no dancin' today

Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
Even if i find nothin' better to do
Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
Why'd you pick a tune when I'm not in the mood?

Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
I'd rather be home with the one in the bed till dawn, with you

Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
Even if I find nothin' better to do
Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
Why'd you pick a tune when I'm not in the mood?

Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
I'd rather be home with the one in the bed till dawn, with you
