We can dance if we want to. We can leave your friends behind. 'Cause your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance, well, they're no friends of mine.
You wake up late for school. Man, you don't wanna go. You ask your mom, 'Please?' but she still says no.
Harry Truman, Doris Day, Red China, Johnnie Ray.
It's all the same. Only the names will change. Every day it seems we're wasting away.
When I wake up, well I know I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you. When I go out, well I know I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you.
Turn around. Every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you're never comin' 'round.
Celebrate good times, come on! Let's celebrate. Celebrate good times, come on! Let's celebrate.
I get up in the evening and I ain't got nothing to say. I come home in the morning, I go to bed feeling the same way.
I come home in the morning light. My mother says, 'When you gonna live your life right?' Oh mother dear, we're not the fortunate ones.
I gotta take a little time, a little time to think things over. I better read between the lines in case I need it when I'm older.
Now on the day I was born, the nurses all gathered 'round and they gazed in wide wonder at the joy they had found.
Watching every motion in my foolish lover's game. On this endless ocean, finally lovers know no shame.
She's got a smile that it seems to me reminds me of childhood memories where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky.
Father wears his Sunday best. Mother's tired. She needs a rest. The kids are playing up downstairs. Sister's sighing in her sleep. Brother's got a date to keep.
I made it through the wilderness. Somehow I made it through. Didn't know how lost I was until I found you.

Hey, pretty baby with the high heels on. You give me fever like I've never ever known. You're just a product of loveliness. I like the groove of your walk, your talk, your dress.
Moving forward, using all my breath. Making love to you was never second best.
You and I, in a little toy shop, buy a bag of balloons with the money we've got. Set them free at the break of dawn, 'til one by one, they were gone.
Josie's on a vacation far away. Come around and talk it over. So many things that I wanna say. You know I like my girls a little bit older.
Well you're the real tough cookie with the long history of breaking little hearts like the one in me. That's okay, let's see how you do it. Put up your dukes; let's get down to it.
We're talking away. I don't know what I'm to say. I'll say it anyway. Today's another day to find you shying away.
Dark in the city, night is a wire. Steam in the subway. Earth is a fire. Do do doo do, do doo do, do doo do, do doo do, doo doo.
Let's go. Steve walks warily down the street with the brim pulled way down low. Ain't no sound but the sound of his feet. Machine guns ready to go.
That's great. It starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an airplane. Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
We're no strangers to love. You know the rules, and so do I.
She's a very kinky girl, the kind you don't take home to mother. She will never let your spirits down once you get her off the street.
She's a good girl. Loves her mama. Loves Jesus, and America too. She's a good girl. She's crazy about Elvis. Loves horses, and her boyfriend too.
I get up and nothing gets me down. You got it tough, I've seen the toughest around.
You put the boom-boom into my heart. You send my soul sky high when your lovin' starts. Jitterbug into my brain goes a bang, bang, bang 'til my feet do the same.
I don't know where I'm going, but I sure know where I've been. Hanging on the promises in songs of yesterday.
