Lyrics Post: “Safety Dance” by Men Without Hats

We thought, *I* thought, this song was quite the lark back in 1983, all synthesized and right in tune with the era.

How fun! And still is. And maybe it’s time to have a little more of that these days…

S-S-S-S, A-A-A-A, F-F-F-F, E-E-E-E, T-T-T-T, Y-Y-Y-Y

Safety…dance…

We can dance if we want to

We can leave your friends behind

‘Cause your friends don’t dance

And if they don’t dance

Well, they’re no friends of mine

I say, we can go where we want to

A place where they will never find

And we can act like we come from out of this world

Leave the real one far behind

And we can dance (Come see!)

We can dance if we want to

We can leave your friends behind

‘Cause your friends don’t dance

And if they don’t dance

Well, they’re no friends of mine

I say, we can go where we want to

A place where they will never find

And we can act like we come from out of this world

Leave the real one far behind

And we can dance

(We can dance, we can dance, everything’s out of control)

(We can dance, we can dance, we’re doing it from wall to wall)

We can go when we want to

The night is young and so am I

And we can dress real neat

From our hats to our feet

And surprise ’em with a victory cry

I say, we can act if we want to

If we don’t nobody will

And you can act real rude

And totally removed

And I can act like an imbecile

I say, we can dance, we can dance, everything’s out of control (Out of control!)

We can dance, we can dance, we’re doing it from wall to wall (Wall to wall!)

We can dance, we can dance, everybody look at your hands (Look at your hands, yeah…)

We can dance, we can dance, everybody’s takin’ the chance

It’s safety dance

Well it’s safety dance

Yeah it’s safety dance

S-S-S-S, A-A-A-A, F-F-F-F, E-E-E-E, T-T-T-T, Y-Y-Y-Y

Safety…dance…

We can dance if we want to

We’ve got all your life and mine

As long as we abuse it

Never gonna lose it

Everything’ll work out right

I say, we can dance if we want to

We can leave your friends behind

‘Cause your friends don’t dance

And if they don’t dance

Well, they’re are no friends of mine

I say, we can dance, we can dance, everything’s out of control (Out of control!)

We can dance, we can dance, we’re doing it from wall to wall (Wall to wall!)

We can dance, we can dance, everybody look at your hands (Out of control!)

We can dance, we can dance, everybody’s takin’ the chance

Oh well, safety dance

Oh yes, safety dance

Oh well, safety dance

Oh yes, safety dance

Oh well, safety dance

Oh, safety dance

Oh, it’s safety dance

It’s safety dance

It’s safety dance

It’s safety dance!
