It was about five till five on Friday
We were all getting ready to go
And the boss man started screaming
And his veins began to show

He said you and you come with me
Cause you're gonna have to stay
My heart was thumping, I was jumping
I had to get away

Some days you gotta dance
Live it up when you get the chance
Cause when the world doesn't make no sense
And you're feeling just a little too tense
Gotta loosen up those chains and dance

Well, I was talking with my baby
Over a small glass of tea
He asked the loaded question
He said how do you feel about me

My mind was racing, I was pacing
But the word just wouldn't come
And there was only one thing
Left to do I feel it coming on

[Chorus: x2]

You gotta loosen up those chains and dance
Come on and loosen up those chains and dance
