(dancing) I'm having so much love
(dancing) too bad my back had gone
(dancing) boogie down with daddy now
I'd give my house in the country
If you'd slept it's so funky

(music) I'm dancing in the street
(ooh music) I've torn the shoes from my feet
(romancing) it's got me dirty and sweet
It's got you reeling and rocking
Won't you let the slender thing in

(rolling) I think it's all I can do
(rolling) just got me feeling you too
(rolling) get a little take a little
Get a little back
Jumping john the great goose is gone
Got a lion in my hand
Got a charlie on my back

(john) I'm only dancing
(she turns me on) I'm only dancing
(she turns me on) oh get you with me
(don't get me wrong) ah ha ha ha ha
(i'm only dancing, oh ho hooo)
(i'm only dancing, oh ho hooo)

(dancing) have you heard the news
(dancing) president has got the blues
(dancing) I tell you comfortably
If he gives it to you
He'd better take it from me

(said sir) I pick up the bones
(said sir) leave the numbers alone
(said sir) get off your telephone
Look the people in the eye
Tell them my oh my
Let your backbone slide
Buddy whistle and cry

(john)
(she turns me on) la la la la
(don't get me wrong) hmm hm hm
(i'm only dancing, oh hooo)
(john) I'm only dancing
(she turns me on) ah ha ha I'm only dancing
(she turns me on) I lost my feel
(don't get me wrong) I'm off on my way
(i'm only dancing, oh hooo) please dance with me
(i'm only dancing) please dance with me
(i'm only dancing, oh hooo)

(dancing, dancing, dancing, woh woh woh)
(dancing, dancing, dancing, woh woh woh)
(dancing, dancing, dancing, woh woh woh)
(dancing) I'm only (dancing) I'm only (dancing) I'm only (woh woh woh)
(dancing) I'm only (dancing) I'm only (dancing) I'm only (woh woh woh)
Can see no care
Lost my fear
Traped charlie dance on
(woh woh woh)
(woh woh woh)
He, he, he, he, he, he, he, 'cause
(woh woh woh)
Got white light
Got black light
Got white light
Lay you dance on
(woh woh woh)
I'm only, I'm only, I'm only
(woh woh woh)
I got, I got
(woh woh woh)

    General CommentThese may not be exactly right....but it's much closer...

    (dancing) I'm having so much love
    (dancing) too bad my back had gone
    (dancing) boogie down with daddy now
    I'd give my house in the country
    If you'd slept it's so funky

    (music) I'm dancing in the street
    (ooh music) I've torn the shoes from my feet
    (romancing) it's got me dirty and sweet

    (rolling) I think it's all I can do
    (rolling) just got me feeling you too
    (rolling) get a little take a little
