I Have To Dance!

I heard a song with a groovy beat,
Made me want to tap my feet.
Hit the floor like a crazy fool,
C                           G7
Like Fred and Ginger; cool man, cool.

So I wrote my own sweet tune,
A bit of swing, and a bit of croon.
A touch of jazz to fill it out,
C                C7
And then - a final big band shout.

Now my head just wonít keep still,
The doctor said, Son, take this pill.
But I just threw the drugs away,
C                     C7
I want to feel my body sway.

And though I ache from constant swing,
I donít care, it donít mean a thing.
Bring me my jacket, and press my pants,
Iíve lost control, and I have to dance!

Iíve lost control. I have to dance!
I want to find sweet romance.
Like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire,
C                              C7
I have to dance, and I donít care where.

I want to spin across the stage,
Ignore my aches, forget my age.
So, take me back where I belong,
Right inside that swinging songÖ
And go, cat, go!
