Lyrics
Yeah

Woah!

When I came to the city
Nobody knew my name
Yes I came to the city
Looking for fortune and fame

But it's, oh well, oh well
Just wanna dance the night away
Oh well, oh well
Just wanna dance the night away
Aay

When I left my home in the country
I was sure I'd be a movie star
But it never worked out
No I could not get a job
Except for parking car
Wooh

Oh well, oh well
Just wanna dance the night away
Oh well, oh well
Just wanna dance the night away

It's ok
Just wanna dance along today
It's alright
I just wanna dance
Just wanna dance
Just wanna dance tonight
Woah woah wow ho

Oh well, oh well
Just wanna dance the night away
Oh well, oh well
Just wanna dance the night away

I just wanna put on my best-est suit
With my white shirt gleaming in the night
And I'm gonna go out
And I'm gonna dance the night away
I wanna wanna dance it
I wanna
Dance the night away wooh

I wanna dance the night away
I wanna wanna dance
I wanna dance the night away, wooh
I wanna shiver, shake a leg
Do the Okey Cokey wooh

'Eah, well I just wanna dance
Got to do da dance
I wanna dance the night away, yeah
I wanna dance
I just wanna dance
I don't care
There's no flies on me
I wanna dance
I wanna shake my little legs, to the beat
Give me that Barry White, gimmie it wooh
I wanna dance, oh yeah I wanna do the,
I wanna do the shuffle, I wanna do the....
