Refuse to dance

(Charlie Dore / Danny Schogger)

Got your invitation to the dance

Wear your party dress

Maybe I was just an innocent

But I confess

I never even knew the song

The orchestra was playing

See the cuties in their party clothes

Oh it's getting warm

Off the shoulder cut into the hip

Like a uniform

Did you think I'd want to tow the line

Well now the line is broken

(Chorus)

Refuse to dance

Refuse to dance

Refuse to dance

Refuse to dance

You said you're such a pretty thing

You could make a mark

I'll teach you all the steps you'll need

Guide you through the dark

Suddenly I thought I knew the song

The orchestra was playing

(Repeat Chorus)

See how they follow

You say jump. They jump

You say turn. They turn

Look back in sorrow

I won't be there

(Repeat Chorus to fade)
