lyrics

The Dancefloor

This dance floor the stage for a lifetime of drama
Some great comic moments, a gay panorama
This dance floor has welcomed the great and the good
The ladies, the dandies, who glided the wood

Steeped in the beer, in the tears and the sweat
Burned by the butts of the stubbed cigarettes
Scarred by the heels of thousand stilettos
Haunted at night by the waltzing of ghosts...
Listen, listen...la la la

This dance floor has witnessed some elegant scenes
Warm tender moments of romantic dreams
Nights that could end in testosterone hell
This dance floor has plenty such stories to tell...

Of soldiers and sailors who danced for the nation
And fought with the girls in the faint expectation
Of a ‘heroes farewell’ when walking home after
Alone in the night you can still hear their laughter...
Listen, listen...Ha ha ha

This dance floor survives in a tired old town
A link to its past, a jewel in its crown
Surviving neglect, a fire, a war
Come Saturday night you can still hear it roar...
Na na na
