Go down to Danceland
Hear the music see them dance
It’s where Mom and Dad first met
It’s where we smoked our first cigarette
Go down hear the band

I went down to Danceland, stood out on the floor
I saw Katie crying in the corner by the door
She said no one loved her and I said I’m not so sure
We went for a walk and ended up on her front porch

Go down to Danceland
Hear the music see them dance
It's where Mom and Dad first met
It’s where we smoked our first cigarettes
Go down hear the band

The smell, the summer heat and popcorn popping, sailors say
This was the best place to meet a girl come Saturday
The marquee burned a million lights and blinked ‘til dawn the night away
A girl sold gum and cigarettes but that’s long before my day

Go down to Danceland
Hear the music see them dance
If these walls could talk I'd hear them say
Where Tommy do-seed and Mick Jagger played
Go down hear the band

All that remains is a photo from that place
Of me and Katie kissing, oh that look upon her face
They said that arson brought her down now a mall stands in her place
I cried the day it burned, I cried when Katie left the state

Go on, now

Go down to Danceland
Hear the music see them dance
It's where Mom and Dad first met
It’s where we smoked our first cigarettes
Go down hear the band
Go down hear the band
Go down hear the band
Go down hear the band
