well she was out there shake-shake-shakin' with the beat
my back was up against the wall, the floor was nailed to the bottom of my feet.
and he was push-push-pushin' like he was selling speed
oh, he's got his hands up on her hips; i'm making faces you wouldn't believe

oh next thing it's--
strange hands, moving down your back
gives me a heart attack
it's gettin' heavy, heavy, heavy
aw man, i wanna take you back
but i know that i can't
it's gettin' heavy, heavy, heavy

s-s-s-so i slide down the bar to get myself a better view
oh, and someone pushed me in the back and said, "listen boy i'm talking to you"
and so! i turn around, he says, "you know what i want you to do"
oh, and then he drug me by the collar through the crowd and then started to move

next thing it's--
strange hands, moving down my back
gives me a heart attack
it's gettin' heavy, heavy, heavy
aw man, i wanna make it stop
but i know that it's dark
it's gettin' heavy, heavy, heavy

oh he was looking for more
i made my way for the door
he tried to pull me back in
i knew exactly what for
i didn't know what to do
so i just stood there shaking like a little girl

but i kept looking at her
she kept looking at him
and he was looking to me
to put it all to an end
so i got down on my knees
i just started beggin', and beggin'
and beggin', ...

strange hands, moving down your back
gives me a heart attack
it's gettin' heavy, heavy, heavy
aw man, i wanna take you back
but i know that i can't
it's gettin' heavy, heavy, heavy

oh man, up and down your back
gives me a heart-attack
it's gettin' heavy, heavy, heavy
aw man, i want to make it stop
but i know that it's dark
it's gettin' heavy, heavy, heavy

    General CommentI've always thought this song was about a three-way between two guys and a girl... but when I read the lyrics over again and I saw the part about the "crowd", that theory made less sense.

    General CommentIt's a bloke who's at a club with this ex-girlfriend he still fancies (aw man, i wanna take you back
    but i know that i can't). She's dancing with some other bloke who's really into her. The singer is jealous and moves over to the bar so that he can see them better when a new guy starts to hit on him and he freaks out but in the Bar probably won't get noticed being in trouble and then the bloke touching him up wants more and he tries to get away.

    General CommentI agree with BelvedereII - I think he's watching his ex-girlfriend dancing with a guy at a club and is really jealous, and then some other guy comes and hits on HIM. As far as I can see there's actually no real reason for it being a guy rather than a girl making him dance with him, I think it's just incidental.
