You look out of your window
Into the night
Could be rain, could be snow
But it can't feel as cold as you're feeling inside

And all of you friends are either married, vanished
Or just left alone
But that's no reason to just stop living
That's no excuse to just give in to a sad and lonely heart

Don't forget to dance, no, no, no
Don't forget to smile
Don't forget to dance, no, no, no
Forget it for a while

'Cause darling, darling
I bet you danced a good one in your time
And if this were a party
I'd really make sure the next one would be mine
Yes, you with the broken heart

Don't forget to dance, no, no, no
Don't forget to smile
Don't forget to dance, no, no, no
Forget it for a while

Don't forget to dance, no, no, no
Forget it for a while

You walk down the street
And all the young punks whistle at you
A nice bit of old
Just goes to show what you can achieve
With the right attitude
As you pass them by
They whisper their remarks one to another
And you give them the eye
Even that you know that you could be their mother
You do the thing you love the most
What separates you from the rest
And what you love to do the most?
And when they ask me how you dance
I say that you dance real close

No, no , no , don't forget to dance
Don't forget to dance, no, no, no
Don't forget to dance
Don't forget to dance
