"Clap Your Hands" as written by Sia Furler and Sam / Dixon....
Well I've been neglecting the good things oh oh oh
Well I've been desiring the good things oh oh oh
I'm biting the lighting the good things oh oh oh
I've minding what to see the good things oh oh oh

Shake me out of my misery oh oh oh
Oh on a night like this
Get out of misery oh oh oh

Clap your hands, clap your hands
Turn the lights on my nights this is life and we only get one chance
Oh clap your hands, clap your hands
Come on dance, take a chance on romance, we only get one shot at love
Oh clap your hands, clap your hands
Turn the lights on my nights this is life and we only get one chance
Oh clap your hands, clap your hands
Come on dance, take a chance on romance, we only get one shot at love
Oh clap your hands, clap your hands

I'm trying to fly in
The good things oh oh oh
I'm finding this might be
A good thing oh oh oh

Shake me out of my misery oh oh oh
Oh oh make me get out and wiggle it oh oh oh

Clap your hands, clap your hands
Turn the lights on my nights this is life and we only get one chance
Oh clap your hands, clap your hands
Come on dance, take a chance on romance, we only get one shot at love
Oh clap your hands, clap your hands
Turn the lights on my nights this is life and we only get one chance
Oh clap your hands, clap your hands
Come on dance, take a chance on romance, we only get one shot at love
Oh clap your hands, clap your hands

Clap your hands, clap your hands
Clap your hands, clap your hands

Clap your hands, clap your hands
Turn the lights on my nights this is life and we only get one chance
Oh clap your hands, clap your hands
Come on dance, take a chance on romance, we only get one shot at love
Oh clap your hands, clap your hands
Turn the lights on my nights this is life and we only get one chance
Oh clap your hands, clap your hands
Come on dance, take a chance on romance, we only get one shot at love
Oh clap your hands (oh clap your hands)

    Song MeaningI think the song's about being in a dark place but finding the person who is able to get you out of it, and taking a chance on romance.

    General CommentDon't bullshit the lyrics. It's annoying.

    As for the actual song itself, I feel Sia might be talking about her experiences as a performer (clap your hands) and how singing and entertaining for others gives her a positive outlet (Shake me out of my misery, make me get out and wiggle it).

    General CommentI like how she announces it at her gigs: "This is Crap Your Pants" :-)

    General CommentThis song has really grown on me. I got it on a free compilation CD and at first I thought it was just a silly dancing tune. But Sia has a lovely, lively voice, the lyrics go beyond happy-happy-joy-joy and the rhythm never gets boring. It's hard not to start clapping along, even if you're listening on your headphones in the middle of the night in a thin-walled apartment. (Yeah, if I really listened to the song, I would go out.)
