"I Gotta Dance to Keep from Crying" as written by Edward Holland, Lamont Herbert Dozier and Brian Holland....
Come on everybody
Gather 'round my friends here
Help me forget my hurtin' tears
About the only girl I ever loved
The only one baby
I gotta dance to keep from cryin' (crying)
I've got to dance to keep from crying' (crying)

Whoa, do the flop (do the flop)
Do the twist (do the twist)
Everybody, it goes like this
You gotta dance, got me swayin', got me, alright
Gotta dance, got me swayin', got me, alright

'Cause I'm so lonely since we parted
Our memories leaves me so broken hearted

I gotta dance to keep from cryin' (crying)
I've got to dance to keep from crying' (crying)
Do the bird (do the bird)
Do the fly (do the fly)
Come on, gang, you know, by by by, oh yeah

Do the bang, yeah, you can't miss
Everybody, yeah, it goes like this
You gotta dance, got me swayin', got me, alright
Gotta dance, got me swayin', got me, alright

Heartaches can gather 'round
Misery I surely found

I gotta dance to keep from cryin' (crying)
I've got to dance to keep from crying' (crying)

Ooh, you've got the wrong girl
I think you're makin' up too much noise
So get soft, oh, just a little bit soft
Oh, just a little bit soft, soft, soft, soft, soft, just a little bit soft, soft, soft
Guess, I turn it up, I, guess I turn it up, I, guess I turn it up, higher, just a little bit
Come on and dance with me, swing, dance with me swing
I do that move, I do that move,
