SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY & THE ASBURY JUKES
"I Can't Dance"
(J. Lyon/M. Noble)

I was so in love with the sounds I was hearing
When I was a child
But lately I can't find that rhythm and I, well I don't know why
I tell myself my ears are still ringing
From life going upside my head
But when I hear that sweet soul singin'
Well I'm a wild child again
Yes I am

You know I can't dance and I never could
But when I feel that rhythm
Well, it sounds do good, I wish I could
I wanna dance dance dance
But I can't dance
I wanna dance dance dance
Oh, I can't dance

I've been walkin' round this mean old town
A sad and lonely boy
Seems I've forgotten those garage band days
When everything was a joy
We'd ride around in Garry's rusty Ford
With that radio turned up so loud
And head on down to the Upstage Club
And join that madding crowd

Now when I hear those old soul songs
Well it makes my heart just swell
You know I love to hear that one by Archie Bell and the Drells
Yea that one

I wanna dance dance dance
No, I can't dance
I wanna dance dance dance
But I'm afraid to take that chance
I can't dance

No never mind
I'm not gonna get on the floor and make a fool of myself
Just so you guys can have a laugh, forget it

Yea I wanna dance dance dance
I wanna dance one time
I got to dance, need to dance
I wanna dance dance dance
No no, but I can't dance
I wanna dance dance dance
I wanna dance but I know
That I can't dance, I can't dance
Oh, I'd love to get out there on the floor
Just like I used to see the old Cadillacs do it
Get up and dance
Ain't it beautiful
