Lyrics

See the girl in the black dress <br />
And the boy by her side <br />
He&rsquo;s followed her around the room <br />
With his eyes <br />
He puts his hand on her lower back <br />
For a dance <br />
He makes his move <br />
He takes his chance <br />
<br />
Everybody&rsquo;s got to learn to dance <br />
Everybody&rsquo;s got to take a chance <br />
Everybody&rsquo;s got to know the tune <br />
Everybody&rsquo;s got to make their move, make their move <br />
<br />
He tries to find a winning phrase <br />
To make her smile <br />
But misses every opportunity <br />
By a mile <br />
She just wants this shy young man <br />
To hold her hand <br />
To make his move <br />
To take a chance <br />
<br />
Everybody&rsquo;s got to learn to dance... <br />
<br />
She asks him if he knows her name <br />
He whispers yes <br />
He wants to tell her everything <br />
He wants to confess <br />
How much he&rsquo;d love to touch the skin <br />
Beneath her dress <br />
To make his move <br />
To take the chance <br />
<br />
Everybody&rsquo;s got to learn to dance... <br />
<br />
The game runs at it&rsquo;s own pace <br />
The music fast or slow <br />
The heart beats to it&rsquo;s own drum <br />
Love&rsquo;s metronome <br />
But we&rsquo;ve all got to learn the steps <br />
To that first dance <br />
To make our move <br />
To take our chance <br />
<br />
Everybody&rsquo;s got to learn to dance... <br />
<br />
