"Dance" as written by and Paul Jabara....
Wedding night, blade knife
Shining under orange light
See him running, caught under headlight
Don't care anyway
This scar has seen better days
Get it out of my way
That's where music playing

I'll get dancing
I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing

Maggie comes fleet foot, face full of black soot
Talking that the heat put plants in the bed but
Married on Wednesday, written on Thursday
Trial on Friday, hung herself on Saturday

I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Time and time
I know time trickle by
Hung herself on washing line
This girl's drip dry

I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing

    General CommentI can't believe I'm the first person who is going to comment on this song! :O

    I also can't believe Polly waited ten freakin' years to finally release this masterpiece! Originally planned for 4-Track Demos, finally saw the light of day on the Shame 7" single.

    What can I saw? Classic sordid Polly. Awesome song! MUST hear for fans!

    General CommentI cannot remember where I read that, but I did. It was probably pollyharvey.co.uk. In fact, most b-sides from Uh Huh Her onwards have been very, very old vaulted songs. Like Wait (1991), Liverpool Tide (1995, 1998?), Angel (1991), 97 Degrees and Stone might be old as well.

    General CommentIt's "This car's seen better days" (hence the caught under headlight.)

    "Time left,
    time died,
    O time trickled by..."
