Testo

On the floors of Tokyo
A-down in London town’s a go go
A-with the record selection,
And the mirror’s reflection,
I’m a dancin’ with myself
A-when there’s no one else in sight,
A-in crowded lonely night
Well, I wait so long for my love vibration
And I’m dancing with myself
Oh oh, Dancing with a-myself,
Oh, oh, dancing with myself
Well, there’s nothing to lose
And there’s nothing to prove, well,
Dancing a-with myself
If I looked all over the world
And there’s every type of girl
But your empty eyes seem to pass me by
And leave me dancin’ with myself.
So let’s sink another drink
Cause it’ll give me time to think
If I had the chance I’d ask the world to dance
And I’ll be dancin’ with myself
Oh oh, Dancing with a-myself,
Oh, oh, dancing with myself
Well, there’s nothing to lose
And there’s nothing to prove, well,
Dancing a-with myself
Well if I looked all over the world
And there’s every type of girl
But your empty eyes seem to pass me by
And leave me dancin’ with myself.
So let’s sink another drink
Cause it’ll give me time to think
If I had the chance I’d ask the world to dance
And I’ll be dancin’ with myself
Oh oh, Dancing a-with myself,
Oh, oh, dancing with myself
If I had the chance I’d ask the world to dance
If I had the chance I’d ask the world to dance
If I had the chance I’d ask the world to dance
Oh, oh, oh, oh oh
Oh, oh, oh dancin’ with myself.
Oh, oh, dancin’ with myself, oh, oh,
Sweat, sweat, etc.
