Everybody's got the dancin' fever
Everbody'd love to rock and roll
Play it loud and baby play it better
Funky music gotta stretch your soul

Just relax and let the rhythm take you
Don't you be afraid to lose control
If your heart has found some empty spaces
Dancin's just a thing to make you whole

I am one who dances with the mountains
I am one who dances with the wind
I am one who dances on the ocean
My partner's more than pieces more than friends

Were you there the night they lost the lightning
Were you there the day the earth stood still
Did you see the famous and the fighting
Did you hear the prophet tell his tale

We are one when dancing with the mountains
We are one when singing in the wind
We are one when thinking of each other
More than partners much more than pieces more than friends

Words and music by John Denver
