Well, hey, Miss Go-Go, won't cha stop for a minute
'Cause the song you're dancin' to it got somethin' in it.
There's a lotta things them long funny words can teach ya.
Yeah, but the words don't reach ya.

When you're going, you dance to it.
You dance to it.
You bop, strut and prance right through it.
When the trouble comes along
You'll say nobody gave you a chance.
But all you wanna do is dance… dance… dance. Yeah.
Yeah…dance.

Well, I'm not asking you to do things my way.
I'm not telling you to do what I say.
I'm not telling you to grab a lotta things that you're missing.
It would be nice tho' to listen.

But you go and you dance to it.
Your box slot slop around and prance right through it.
When the end comes you'll say nobody gave you a chance.
But all you wanna do is dance… dance… dance…
Dance… dance… dance … yeah.

Why don'tcha open your ears?
The man's sayin' somethin' to ya.
Open your eyes.
The man's showin' somethin' to ya.
Open your mind.
The man's telling somethin' in you.
But what do you do?
You go and dance to it.
You dance to it.
Your box slot slop around and prance right through it.
When the end comes along you'll say nobody gave you a chance.
But what you wanna do is dance… dance… wait a minute now.

Yeah, I can see my words ain't gonna move you.
I can see my thought ain't gonna groove you.
You might stop and think for a just a minute but then
You'll start swingin' again.

And you're gonna dance to it… you dance to it.
You move, groove, dance around and prance to it.
When the end comes along you'll say nobody gave you a chance.
But what you wanna do is dance… dance… dance…
Dance… dance… dance … yeah.

Spoken:
Hey, wait a minute… yeah, baby just stop for a second.
Do you know what this guy's sayin'?
Do you know what those words mean?
You gotta do somethin'!
No…No…Just wait… I mean…oh , come on. Uhhh.
I mean , take off those Go-Go boots for a second .
I mean…yeah , I mean, wait. I mean… uhhh
Hey…okay… but what's that stuff?
Like this, huh? Yeah… uhhh…hmmm.
