I wanna dance

I can shake a stick at all the living (Hey, wait a minute)
Got two holes in my hands (I think I need a sec) 
It's not enough to feed a nation (I just wanna sit right here)
I'm not just another fan (I don't feel so good in this dress)
I see you looking at the living (Take a minute, take a look at me)
Put it back in your pants (Tell me, tell me what you think you see)
Do you need an invitation? (Do I give off a bubble effect?)
Mr. Wagon, meet the band (Think I need another cigarette)

I gotta dance (Don't wanna, don't wanna)
I gotta dance (Don't wanna, don't wanna)
I gotta dance (Don't wanna, don't wanna)
I gotta dance (Take it easy, I don't wanna dance)

Shaking hips for a living (Maybe later I'll be feeling good)
It's the year of the tan (Maybe greater than I thought I could)
Another Jagger imitation (Something subtle gets me something sweet)
Drinking wine out of a can (Time with me isn't a two-way street)
No more waiting, time for living (Buying into the beauty myth)Make a flash in the pan (Telling everything, I'll take the fifth)It's my latest incarnation (Let it out and let me live it up)
Sweaty tickets in my hand (This isn't fun, I think I'll give it up)

I gotta dance (Don't wanna, don't wanna)
I gotta dance (I don't wanna, don't wanna)
I gotta dance (I don't wanna, I don't wanna)
I gotta dance (Take it easy, I don't wanna dance)

We gotta dance (I don't wanna, don't wanna)
We gotta dance (I don't wanna, I don't wanna)
We gotta dance (I don't wanna, I don't wanna)
We gotta dance (Sit down here and watch me eat to the beat)

I gotta dance (I don't wanna, I don't wanna)
I gotta dance (I don't wanna, I don't wanna)
I gotta dance (I don't wanna, I don't wanna)
I gotta dance (Take it easy, I don't wanna dance)

I gotta dance (Don't wanna, don't wanna)
I gotta dance (I don't wanna, don't wanna)
I gotta dance (I don't wanna, I don't wanna)
I gotta dance (Take it easy, I don't wanna dance)

We gotta dance (Maybe later I'll be feeling good)
We gotta dance (Maybe greater than I thought I could)
We gotta dance (Possibilities I can't ignore)
I gotta dance (Come on, baby, let's get on the floor)
