"You Gotta Dance" as written by Robert A. Ezrin, Alice Cooper and Dick Wagner....
We like to throw our bodies around
We like to feel each other
We're all slaves when we hear that sound
Says dance
Says dance
Says you gotta dance
Says dance
(There ain't no two ways about it )

We're all compelled to rise and thrust
When we all move together
We're all hypnotized with savage lust
Says dance
Says dance
Says you gotta dance
Says dance

I'm so hot it makes me shiver
Makes me wet
Makes me slide
It's some spirit I'm possessed by
I can't stop
We just got to dance
Dance
Dance

We gotta blow when he says blow
And we gotta shake and shimmy
He got the strings tied to our souls
Says dance
Says dance
Says we gotta dance
Says dance
(And I don't mean tomorrow)

I'm so hot it makes me shiver
Makes me wet
Makes me slide
It's some spirit I'm possessed by
I can't stop
We just got to dance
Dance
Dance

Dance
Dance
Dance

    General CommentOn the album "Alice Cooper goes to hell" this is the second song, right after Alice Cooper has descended into hell.
    You would expect that after descending into hell, that the first thing you'd see is people suffering, not people dancing.
    Apparently this means something.

    When this record came out in 1976, disco was hot. Apparently Alice Cooper wants to say something like: disco is hell.
