"I've been out here walkin' and talkin' to myself
About four hours now
Love is really a hurting thing"

"Hey, man, what's happenin'?"

"Hey, brother, what's going on? Alright?
He's got his woman over there
But mine's at home
What time is it?
Damn, almost 12:45
I think I'ma walk up here and see what's going on in this discotheque
There's always something going on in there
'What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted'
Oh, baby
Oh, this looks like the place
Everybody's goin' in, step on up here
One ticket, please
Lord have mercy, everybody's there"

"Hey, what's goin' one man? Yeah? She's at home?"

"Yeah, she's at home
Yeah, she's at home"

Let the music play
I just wanna dance the night away
Here, right here, right here is where I'm gonna stay
All night long, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, wee

Let the music play on
Just until I feel this misery is gone
Movin', kickin', groovin', keep the music strong
On and on and on and on and on and on and on
And on and on and on
And on and on and on and on

I'm out here dancin' and still, huh
I can't erase the things I feel
The tender love we used to share
See, it's like it's no longer there
I've got to hide what's killin' me inside

Let the music play
I just want to dance the night away
Here, right here, right here is where I'm gonna stay
All night long, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Let the music play on
Just until I feel this misery is gone
Ah, movin', kickin', groovin', keep the music strong
Ah, let it play on and on
Let it play on and on and on and on and on and on

I think I'm gonna be alright, ha, ha, ha
If I can make it through the night, oh, Lord
I'll just pretend she's here with me
I'll close my eyes, her face I'll see
Won't somebody help me?
I know it's make believe, but it's the only hope for me

Let the music play
I just want to dance the night away
Here, right here, right here is where I'm gonna stay
All night long, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Let the music play on
Just until I feel this misery is gone
Ah, movin', kickin', groovin', keep the music strong
Ah, let it play

"Baby, I wanna see you now
And then you'd know that it's only you that I love
I'm not out here looking for a one night affair
It is just that I, that I'm so hurt inside
Oh, all I wanna do is just dance, dance, dance"

Let the music play
I just wanna dance the night away
Ah, here, right here is where I'm gonna stay
All night long, ooh, ooh, ooh, wee

Let the music play on
Just until I feel this misery is gone
Movin', kickin', groovin', keep the music strong
Let it play on, let it play on, let it play on
Please, let it play on
Let it play on
