I come up in the dance with a slip of sensi
Whether peanuts, epitome too, or envy
A family affair, everything is carefree
I ain't get up off the wall until I heard Mary

If you're floatin' real high and you feelin' the vibe
Won't you get on the floor and just dance for me
If you're feeling the groove, it ain't knocking for you
So just get on the floor and just dance for me
And I know you been stressed, this whole week got you messed up
Get on the floor and just dance for me
Just be here ain't no joke, so stay here 'til we're closed
And stay up on the floor and just dance for me

Hey, I know it's been rough, but I'm tryna make it easy
For everybody to dance for me
So come one, come all, come everybody (come on, come on)
Me and you, all of us 'bout to really party (really party)
And you know that we're gonna put it down (put it down)
After two more drinks, we'll be feelin' the sound

If you're floatin' real high and you feelin' the vibe
Won't you get on the floor and just dance for me (come dance with me)
If you're feeling the groove, it ain't knocking for you
So just get on the floor and just dance for me (dance with me)

Get off the wall 'cause I know that you can feel me
Stop the fronting and dance for me
So come one, come all, come everyone (come on, come on)
And me and you, all of us 'bout to really party (really party)
And you know that we're gonna put it down
After four more drinks we'll be fallin' down

If you're floatin' real high and you feelin' the vibe (feel the vibe)
Won't you get on the floor and just dance for me (dance with me, yeah, yeah)
And I know you been stressed, this whole week got you messed up
Get on the floor and just dance for me

Leave all your troubles and your cares behind
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, not tonight, no
Don't drink too much because we have all night
Don't you rush, because it's all night long

If you're floatin' real high and you feelin' the vibe
Won't you get on the floor and just dance for me (dance with me)
If you're feeling the groove, it ain't knocking for you
So just get on the floor and just dance for me (oh, dance for me)
And I know you been stressed, this whole week got you messed up
Get on the floor and just dance for me (dance with me)
Just be here ain't no joke, so stay here 'til we're closed
And stay up on the floor and just dance for me (yeah, yeah, yo)

While ladies shake they thangs, brothers chains swang
Dancing is a ritual we use to maintain
Whether steppin' or Crip walkin', over music, shit talkin'
Hard times get softened in spots we hit often
Off in a loft, basement party, or a strip club
Good times, good wine, gotta skeet to trick dubs
It's up to you, I ain't gon' tell you where you has to be
Like the ghost of Marvin, come on and dance for me

If you're floatin' real high and you feelin' the vibe
Won't you get on the floor and just dance for me
If you're feeling the groove, it ain't knocking for you
So just get on the floor and just dance for me
And I know you been stressed, this whole week got you messed up (dance for me, dance for me)
Get on the floor and just dance for me (dance for me, dance for me)
Just be here ain't no joke, so stay here 'til we're closed (dance for me, come on, come on)
And stay up on the floor and just dance for me

If you're floatin' real high and you feelin' the vibe (come on, come on, come on, come on)
Won't you get on the floor and just dance for me (come on, come on, come on, come on)
If you're feeling the groove, it ain't knocking for you (come on, come on)
So just get on the floor and just dance for me

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
