She's thinkin' about what her kids are doing 
Five miles away it's almost time for bed
They're brushing teeth and hearing one more story 
And in the mirror, she paints her lips bright red

She wishes she could call and say she loves them
But the boss man says no calls go out or in
So she puts on a dress that might feel pretty 
If she didn't have to take it off again 

[Chorus:]
She's dancin' for the groceries 
She's dancin' for the rent
She's dancin' for the credit card that she's already spent
In sequins and in laces, she's dancing for the braces 
So her kids can have a perfect smile someday  Smiling while she dances, is the price she has to pay

They tell her in this job there is no future 
So get it while you can cause looks don't last
There's money in those pockets for the taking 
And if you do it right it makes the time go fast

The music's loud, the drinks are mostly water
 Whatever her name is tonight she can't recall 
The business men stare at the single mother
Who's smiling while she's staring at the wall

[Chorus]

 Someday she'll have a house out in the country  Someday she'll see the other side of dawn
And no one will ever know what it was she did before 
But she just heard the DJ say "you're on"
And the lights come up and they play her song

She's dancin' for the groceries 
She's dancin' for the rent
She's dancin' for the credit card that she's already spent
In sequins and in laces, she's dancing for the braces 
So her kids can have a perfect smile someday  Smiling while she dances, smiling while she dances 
Is the price she has to pay
She's dancin' for the groceries 
It's the price she has to pay
