Slipped My Disco

by The Tubes

The Tubes are a San Francisco-based rock band, whose 1975 debut album included the hit single, "White Punks on Dope". During its first fifteen years or so, the band's live performances combined quasi-pornography with wild satires of media, consumerism, and politics.[citation needed] They are perhap…




Well the joint was jumpin'
Maybe I got too high
And the beat was familiar
My feet were too sly

I tried to hustle
I tried to bump
I was always steppin'
When it was time to jump

My baby said quit
I told her I wouldn't
If she asked me today
I'd say I couldn't

Slipped my disco--he slipped his disco
Slipped my disco when I was dancing with you, baby

I begin to wonder
is it worth the pain
Get so twisted
that you wind up lame
Maybe it's my technique
or is it my shoes
Just another white boy
with the disco blues

Sometimes my body does
things that my brain don't understand
I'm not the man I was
but my feet still think I am

And the doctor's busy
He's checking me out
He says I'm crazy
to jump and shout

I said, one more number Doc,
just one more tune
Let me out of this emergency room--and I

Slipped my disco--he slipped his disco
Slipped my disco when I was dancing with you, baby

I begin to wonder
is it worth the pain
Get so twisted
that you wind up lame
Maybe it's my technique
or is it my shoes
Just another white boy
with the disco blues
