"Don't Stop The Dance" as written by Rhett Davies and Bryan Ferry....
Mama says truth is all that matters
Lying 'n' deceiving is a sin
Drifting through a world that's torn and tattered
Every thought I had don't mean a thing

Don't stop, don't stop the dance
No, more music, don't stop the dance

Mama says love is all that matters
Beauty should be deeper than your skin
Living for the moment, lips and lashes
Will I ever find my way again

Don't stop, don't stop the dance
No, more music, don't stop the dance

Don't stop, don't stop the dance

Mama says only stormy weather
Don't know why there's no sun in the sky
Footsteps in the dark come together
Got to keep on moving or I'll die

Don't stop, don't stop the dance
No, more music, don't stop the dance
Don't stop, don't stop the dance
No, more music, don't stop the dance
Don't stop, don't stop the dance

    Lyric CorrectionThese lyrics are for 'The Dean And I' by 10cc.
    The lyric for 'Don't Stop The Dance' are as follows:

    "Mama says truth is all that matters
    Lying and deceiving is a sin
    Drifting through a world torn and tattered
    Every thought I have don't mean a thing

    Don't stop, don't stop the dance
    Don't, more music, stop the dance

    Mama says love is all that matters
    Beauty should be deeper than the skin
    Living for the moment, lips and lashes
    Will I ever find my way again

    Don't stop, don't stop the dance

    Mama says love is stormy weather
    Don't know why there's no sun in the sky
    Footsteps in the dark come together
    Gotta keep on moving or I'll die

    Don't stop, don't stop the dance
    Don't, more music, don't stop the dance
    Don't stop, don't stop the dance
    Don't, more music, don't stop the dance
    Don't stop, don't stop the dance"

    This is also the second song I've found by a former Roxy Music member whose lyrics have been replaced by those of a song by band with a number in their name (Gang of Four and now 10cc). Odd.

    General CommentI told my wife that Bryan Ferry would be Jarvis Cocker's father because he's so cool and nonchalant. Showing pure class and style, this song really shows it.

    Now about the lyrics, the message relays a simple idea. And that is that mother was always right about life's curveballs. Simple yet effective and that's why I love it.
