The death of a disco dancer
Well, it happens a lot 'round here
And if you think Peace
Is a common goal
That goes to show
How little you know

The death of a disco dancer
Well, I'd rather not get involved
I never talk to my neighbour
I'd rather not get involved
Oh...

Love, peace and harmony?
Love, peace and harmony?
Oh, very nice
Very nice
Very nice
Very nice
...But maybe in the next world

Love, peace and harmony?
Love, peace and harmony?
Oh, very nice
Very nice
Very nice
Very nice
Very nice
...But maybe in the next world
Maybe in the next world
Maybe in the next world

Oh, love, peace and harmony?
Love, peace and harmony?
Oh, very nice
Very nice
Very nice
...Oh, but maybe in the next world
Maybe in the next world
(In the next world, in the next world, in the next world)
(In the next world, in the next world, in the next world)
The next world, the next world
Oh...

The death of a disco dancer
The death of a disco dancer
The death of a disco dancer
