Gordon: Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Percussion...
Heard about those red shoes, the ones
that make you more of a man
When you walked out of the ballroom,
told them you don't give a damn
'Cause your life is full of parties,
celebrations and affairs
Did you say it was no loss now,
when she kicked you in the stairs?
Don't go looking for those shoes 'cause
they're in the lost and found
And you can only dance when there's no
one else around

Talk about sincerity, well you gazed
back with a puzzled look
So you dusted off the dictionary, then
dropped it by your little black book
When she walked into the room your
eyes ripped off her glittering gown
So you go down to the weight room and
preponderate yourself with pounds
Feet grow cold and clammy when you
hear that jungle sound
'Cause you can only dance when
there's no one else around

When you're alone, what do you think
about the company?
When you're slapping on the aftershave,
which front do you see?

It's time to go home now, it's the place
where you hang your hat
Your head is swimming from cheap
champagne, you're afraid you
don't know where it's at
You make it to the doorway, stinking,
cold, and pale
On the table is your phone book
buried under unanswered mail
Out go the lights, you pump up the
familiar sounds
And you can only dance when
there's no one else around
