Shut Up and Dance

Lyrics

play"Oh don't you dare look back.
playJust keep your eyes on me."
playI said, "You're holding back, "
playShe said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
playThis woman is my destiny
playShe said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
playShut up and dance with me."

playWe were victims of the night,
playThe chemical, physical, kryptonite
playHelpless to the bass and the fading light
playOh, we were bound to get together,
playbound to get together.

playShe took my arm,
playI don't know how it happened.
playWe took the floor and she said,

play"Oh, don't you dare look back.
playJust keep your eyes on me."
playI said, "You're holding back, "
playShe said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
playThis woman is my destiny
playShe said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
playShut up and dance with me."

playA backless dress and some beat up sneaks,
playMy discothèque, Juliet teenage dream.
playI felt it in my chest as she looked at me.
playI knew we were bound to be together,
playbound to be together

playShe took my arm,
playI don't know how it happened.
playWe took the floor and she said,

play"Oh, don't you dare look back.
playJust keep your eyes on me."
playI said, "You're holding back, "
playShe said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
playThis woman is my destiny
playShe said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
playShut up and dance with me."

playOh, come on girl!

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

playShe took my arm,
playI don't know how it happened.
playWe took the floor and she said,

play"Oh, don't you dare look back.
playJust keep your eyes on me."
playI said, "You're holding back, "
playShe said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
playThis woman is my destiny
playShe said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
playShut up and dance!"

play"Don't you dare look back.
playJust keep your eyes on me."
playI said, "You're holding back, "
playShe said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
playThis woman is my destiny
playShe said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
playShut up and dance with me."

playOoh-ooh-hoo, shut up and dance with me
playOoh-ooh-hoo, shut up and dance with me
