Crowd The Disco Floor

By Vince

Disco dance number, written in 1992


Vince with perm and open shirt dancing with three women

I know the floor is empty and your food's not quite gone down,
I know that you all think that you dance just like a clown.
And the choice of records so far has made you stop and think,
That the bar is still wide open and you need another drink.
I know that you are saying that if someone else is first,
Then you will get stuck in and really do your worst.
But this night won't last forever.
So let's get started. All together.
Grab a friend. Get off your seat.
Don't get left behind the beat.
On the count of three all go!
One. Two. Go!

Be the first to the floor and get a prize.
A chance to be seen by all those eyes.
That man there is getting stuck in.
Or has he just drunk too much gin?

Get on your feet and show no fear.
Do all those things you said coming here.
'Cause if you don't dance it won't be long.
Before we play that flamin' Birdie song!

I cannot stand those parties where no one stands a chance.
'Cause people stand around the place and no one starts to dance.
Now that we have started, we want it more and more.
So come on up and join us on this crowded disco floor.

Four people dancing round and round,
The handbags placed upon the ground.
If you look close the bags are three.
I wish that other man was me.

I cannot stand those parties where no one stands a chance.
'Cause people stand around the place and no one starts to dance.
Now that we have started, we want it more and more.
So come on up and join us on this crowded disco floor.

Form a circle right 'round the room.
Get arm in arm or two by two.
The middle one now has to show.
What they can do, or else they go.

(Music)

I cannot stand those parties where no one stands a chance.
'Cause people stand around the place and no one starts to dance.
Now that we have started, we want it more and more.
So come on up and join us on this crowded disco floor.

I cannot stand those parties where no one stands a chance.
'Cause people stand around the place and no one starts to dance.
Now that we have started, we want it more and more.
So come on up and join us on this crowded disco floor.

Now this record's over. Stay up on the floor.
Hang around together and we'll play you some more.
An' if you don't like what you hear, you can always say,
Let's play this song again, again...
...Why don't you play it again, forever and a day?

I cannot stand those parties where no one stands a chance.
'Cause people stand around the place and no one starts to dance.
Now that we have started, we want it more and more.
So come on up and join us on this crowded disco floor.

I cannot stand those parties where no one stands a chance.
'Cause people stand around the place and no one starts to dance.
Now that we have started, we want it more and more.
So come on up and join us on this crowded disco floor.
