Lyrics

(Dancing) I'm having so much love
(Dancing) Too bad my back had gone
(Dancing) Boogie down with daddy now
I'd give my house in the country
If you slept, it's so funky
(Music) I'm dancing in the street
(Oooh, music) I've torn my shoes from my feet
(Romancing) It's got me dirty and sweet
It's got you reeling and rocking
Won't you let me slam my thing in

(Falling) I think it's all I can do
(Falling) Just got me feeling it too
(Ooh, falling) Give a little, take a little, give a little back
Jumping John, the great goose has gone
Got a lion on my hand, a Charlie on my back

(John) I'm only dancing
(She turns me on) I'm only dancing
(She turns me on) Ooh, but she moves me
(Don't get me wrong) I-I-I-I-I
(I'm only dancing, ooh-ooh)
(I'm only dancing, ooh-ooh)

(Dancing) Have you heard the news?
(Dancing) President has got the blues
(Dancing) I tell you confidently
If he gives it to you, he'd better take it from me

(Sad sad) I'll pick up your bones 
(Sad sad) Leave the numbers alone
(Sad sad) Get off your telephone
Looking people in the eye, tell them "my, oh, my"
Let your backbone slide while you whistle and cry

(John)
(She turns me on)
(She turns me on) love, love, love, we get
(Don't get me wrong) hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
I'm only dancing, ooh-ooh
(John) I-I-I-I'm only dancing
(She turns me on)
I-I-I'm only dancing
(She turns me on) I've lost my feet
(Don't get me wrong) I'm off on my way
(I'm only dancing, ooh-ooh) Please dance with me
(I'm only dancing, ooh-ooh) Please dance with me
(I'm only dancing, ooh-ooh) 

(Dancing, dancing, dancing, woo, woo, woo)
(Dancing, dancing, dancing, woo, woo, woo)
(Dancing, dancing, dancing, woo, woo, woo)

(Dancing) I'm only
(Dancing) I'm only
(Dancing) I'm only
(Woo, woo, woo)
(Dancing) I'm only
(Dancing) I'm only
(Dancing) I'm only
(Woo, woo, woo)
Can't sing nor hear
I've lost my fear
Cha-Charlie, a dance on
(Woo, woo, woo)
(Woo, woo, woo)
He-he-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey, 'cause
(Woo, woo, woo)
You got white light
You got black light
I've got white light
Lay a dance on (woo, woo, woo)
I'm only
I'm only
I'm only
(Woo, woo, woo)
I've got
I've got
(Woo, woo, woo)
(Woo, woo, woo)
(Dancing) Hey
(Dancing) Hey
(Dancing) Hey
(Woo, woo, woo)
Take a dance on me (Dancing)
Lay a dance on me (Dancing)
Lay a dance on me (Dancing)
Hey (Woo, woo, woo)
(Dancing, dancing, dancing, woo, woo, woo)
Gotta give it up (Dancing)
Gotta give it up (Dancing)
Gotta give it up (Dancing)
(Woo, woo, woo)
He-hey (Dancing)
He-hey (Dancing)
(Dancing)
(Woo, woo, woo)
Liking it fine
Making it mine
Liking it fine
Making it mine
Liking it fine
Making it
(I'm only dancing, mmm-hmm)
(I'm only dancing, dancing, I'm only dancing, mmm-hmm)
(I'm only dancing, dancing, I'm only dancing, mmm-hmm)
(I'm only dancing, dancing, I'm only dancing, mmm-hmm)
(I'm only dancing, hey I'm dancing, hey! I'm dancing, mmm-hmm)
Yes I am (I'm only dancing, hey I'm dancing, hey, dancing, mmm-hmm)
Ooh (I'm only dancing, ooh, I'm only dancing, I'm only dancing, mmm-hmm)
