Sally dances on the floor 
She says that she can't do it anymore 
She walks down St. Marks Place
And eats natural food at my place 

Now Sally can't dance no more
she can't get it off of the floor  Sally can't dance no more
Sally, she can't dance no more

 Sally is losing her face
She lives on St. Marks Place
In a rent-controlled apartment, eighty dollars a month 
She has lots of fun, she has lots of fun

But, Sally can't dance no more
Oh Sally she can't dance no more
She went and carried on and can't get off of the floor 
Now Sally, oh she can't dance no more

She was the first girl in the neighborhood 
To wear tied-dyed pants, like she should 
She was the first girl that I've ever seen
That had flowers painted on her jeans 
Now she wears a sword, like Napoleon 
And she kills the boys and acts like a son

 Sally can't dance no more 
 Sally can't dance no more
 Sally can't dance no more
Sally, hey she can't dance no more
 Sally can't dance  Sally can't dance 
 
She knew all the really right people 
She went to Les Jardins 
She danced with Picasso's illegitimate mistress
and wore Kenneth Lane jewels, really hey, it's trash, but

Sally, can't dance no more, yeah
Sally, she can't dance no more, you tell 'em about it
 Sally can't get herself off the floor 
Hey, Sally, girl, she can't dance no more
 Sally can't dance  Sally can't dance 

(Sally can't dance, Sally can't dance)
(Sally can't dance, Sally can't dance)
(Sally can't dance, Sally can't dance)
(Sally can't dance, Sally can't dance)
