I've been working so hard
I'm punching my card
Eight hours for what?
Oh, tell me what I got
I've got this feeling
That time's just holding me down
I'll hit the ceiling or else
I'll tear up this town

Now I gotta cut loose
Footloose, kick off the Sunday shoes
Please, Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back, come on before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose

You're playing so cool, obeying every rule
Dig a way down in your heart
You're burning yearning for some
Somebody to tell you that life ain't passing you by
I'm trying to tell you
It will if you don't even try
You'll get by if you'd only

Cut loose, footloose, kick off the Sunday shoes
Ooh-wee Marie shake it, shake it for me
Woah, Milo come on, come on let's go
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose

You got to turn me around and put your
Feet on the ground, now take the hold of all
Ah ah ah ah ah
I'm turning you loose

Footloose, kick off the Sunday shoes
Please, Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back, come on before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose (footloose)

Footloose, kick off the Sunday shoes
Please, Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back, come on before we crack
Lose your blues,
Everybody cut, everybody cut
Everybody cut, everybody cut
Everybody cut, everybody cut
Everybody cut, everybody cut footloose

    General Comment:this song means alot to me, you know, because it really helped me through the tough times. it has a deeper meaning then what most people see. "sunday shoes" is obviously a metaphore for drugs, and you gotta loose your blues and come clean, and you can be footloose.

    General Comment:please say you're not serious...this song has NO hidden metaphors, just a cry to everybody to loosen up and throw a party in your pants (dancing, not sexual).
