Lyrics

play "Oh don't you dare look back.
play Just keep your eyes on me."
play I said, "You're holding back, "
play She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
play This woman is my destiny
play She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
play Shut up and dance with me."

play We were victims of the night,
play The chemical, physical, kryptonite
play Helpless to the bass and the fading light
play Oh, we were bound to get together,
play bound to get together.

play She took my arm,
play I don't know how it happened.
play We took the floor and she said,

play "Oh, don't you dare look back.
play Just keep your eyes on me."
play I said, "You're holding back, "
play She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
play This woman is my destiny
play She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
play Shut up and dance with me."

play A backless dress and some beat up sneaks,
play My discothèque, Juliet teenage dream.
play I felt it in my chest as she looked at me.
play I knew we were bound to be together,
play bound to be together

play She took my arm,
play I don't know how it happened.
play We took the floor and she said,

play "Oh, don't you dare look back.
play Just keep your eyes on me."
play I said, "You're holding back, "
play She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
play This woman is my destiny
play She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
play Shut up and dance with me."

play Oh, come on girl!

play Deep in her eyes,
play I think I see the future.
play I realize this is my last chance.

play She took my arm,
play I don't know how it happened.
play We took the floor and she said,

play "Oh, don't you dare look back.
play Just keep your eyes on me."
play I said, "You're holding back, "
play She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
play This woman is my destiny
play She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
play Shut up and dance!"

play "Don't you dare look back.
play Just keep your eyes on me."
play I said, "You're holding back, "
play She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
play This woman is my destiny
play She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
play Shut up and dance with me."

play Ooh-ooh-hoo, shut up and dance with me
play Ooh-ooh-hoo, shut up and dance with me
