"Polite Dance Song" as written by Greg Kurstin and Inara George....
Give it up for me please
Put your hands in the air
If you know what's good for you
You'll wanna shake it like you just don't care

Would you please clap your hands?
Now get up on your feet
I beg of you to get up and dance
It's such a crazy kick-ass beat

Pardon me, the music is moving
Moving from left to right
Apologies, for losing my cooling
Losing today, tonight

Since I'm asking so nice
Would you just entertain?
There's nothing left to hide you away
Just show a little bit of brain

Yes, that is what I mean
That's the nail that I hit
I try to be as coy as I can
But I want to see your naughty bit

Would you please? Would you please?
Would you?
Would you please? Would you please?
(Apologies, apologies)
Would you?
Would you please? Would you please?
(Apologies, apologies)
Would you please clap your hands?

Pardon me, the music is moving
Moving from left to right
Apologies, for losing my cooling
Losing today, tonight

Would you be nasty with me?
Do you like dancing with me?
I think we have a very special quality

Would you please? Would you please?
Would you?
Would you please? Would you please?
(Apologies, apologies)
Would you?
Would you please? Would you please?
(Apologies, apologies)
Would you please clap your hands?

Pardon me, the music is moving
Moving from left to right
Apologies, for losing my cooling
Losing today, tonight

    General CommentGREAT MUSIC VIDEO! If you like the song, you'll like it 10x better after seeing the video!

    The song is about about a girl with a clear sexual desire for someone, but she and this person are (ugh) too "polite" to show it. So the girl is "politely" saying some very suggestive requests. (Good for her!)
