"Dancing for Money" as written by and Parker....
When I ask you for a light you don't turn the lights out
When I'm looking for a fight you don't punch my lights out
Sometimes they say love is invincible
I wouldn't go as far as to say that
One thing I know one thing is certain honey
We're not dancing for money ooh ooh

When I ask you for a buck you don't call me deer
When I try to push my luck you don't twist my ear
Sometimes when I'm blind drunk I see it all
But I can't do anything about it
I fall on my face and jerk like a puppet honey
Just like dancing for money (then) instrumental verse

Familiarity breeds contempt so I turn off the radio
From life's pain I'm not exempt I'm just lucky I can go
Some other place where there's a sun up high
Right in my face for once in a lifetime
I'm not a slave, I'm not a captain honey
I'm not dancing for money

I'm not a slave, I'm not a captive
I'm not in chains or nailed to a cross
One thing's for sure one thing is certain honey
I'm not dancing for money I'm not dancing for money
Ooh not dancing for money
Ooh not dancing for money
Ooh not dancing for money
Ooh not dancing for money
