Panic! At The Disco But It's Bettef If You Do Lyrics

Last updated: 12/09/2013 05:58:51 AM

Now I'm of consenting age
To be forgetting you in a cabaret
Somewhere downtown where a burlesque queen
May even ask my name

As she sheds her skin on stage
I'm seated and sweating to a dance song on the club's PA.
And the strip joint veteran sits two away
Smirking between dignified sips of his dignified peach and lime daiquiri

And isn't this exactly where you'd like me
I'm exactly where you'd like me you know
praying for love in a lap dance
And paying in naivety

Oh isn't this exactly where you'd like me
I'm exactly where you'd like me, you know
praying for love in a lap dance
And paying in naivety

Oh, but I'm afraid that I,
Well I may have faked it
And I wouldn't be caught dead-d-dead-d-dead-d-dead in this place

Well, I'm afraid that I,
That's right, well I may have faked it
And I wouldn't be caught dead in this place

And isn't this exactly where you'd like me
I'm exactly where you'd like me you know
praying for love in a lap dance
And paying in naivety

Oh, isn't this exactly where you'd like me
I'm exactly where you'd like me you know
praying for love in a lap dance
And paying in naivety

Well, I'm afraid that I,
Well I may have faked it
And I wouldn't be caught dead-d-dead-d-dead-d-dead in this place

Well, I'm afraid that I,
Well that's right, well I may have faked it
And I wouldn't be caught dead in this place

And isn't this exactly where you'd like me
I'm exactly where you'd like me you know
praying for love in a lap dance
And paying in naivety

Oh, isn't this exactly where you'd like me
I'm exactly where you'd like me you know
praying for love in a lap dance
And paying in naivety

praying for love and paying in naivety
praying for love and paying in naivety, oh

Erm...hi? | Reviewer: ThankYouSherlock | 12/9/13

Anyway. I hate it when people argue over the meaning of Panic!'s songs. Why? Because they purposefully make their songs son that their lyrics sound different for every person. And that's what music is- it should sound different to you and to the person next to you. This isn't pop music, where every song has a very obvious message. It kind of makes me angry that people lose sight of that, but also glad that some people are discovering now what music really is.
Keep listening, guys.

How can you even say this song is bad???? | Reviewer: Tarin | 4/17/09

This song is one of my favourites that P!ATD do.. it is simply brilliant.. catchy tune and clever lyrics, I have walked around all day singing it.. i have to say.. some people may prefer the more rocky sounds of Time to Dance.. But personally I like this song better..

ugh, hypocrite | Reviewer: jay | 8/10/08

not that this has a lot to do with the song (i love it) but it's for the reviewer right under me. who the hell cares when anyone's found out about a band? this isn't a contest for who's the coolest because they knew them when they were still underground. that's pretty hypocritical to even care about. i guess i understand though if he / she (probably she lol) hates those who like them a lot based on their looks or try to sound like their biggest fan ever, but just let them be lol. everyone else who matters know they just sound stupid, no need to attack them relentlessly.

P.S. i just about cracked up though when some girl said they must be pretty smart "cos they use hard or big words in all their songs". wow, i guess she thinks they could've made it to harvard or something lol.

gREAT BUT THE FANS ARE HORRIBLE | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/6/08

I agree 100 percent. Yes, they are hott. But really, "I love him more" "I'm the biggest fan" this crap has to go. You probably found them when "I write sins..." came out. And yes I am aware i didnt finish the song title. I've liked them wayy before that. So shut up.

This is about what you think of their MUSIC!

I like this band very very much!!! ^^ This not my favorite song of Pan!c, but the video is great!! =D

Awesome SOng | Reviewer: Matt | 3/21/07

I think you cant take this song to seriously.
I either think song is about a guy who broke up with his girl but is looking for something to fill the void so he is going to the strip club and he is falling in love with one of the girls there. Or its about someone who takes going to the stip club way to seriously. Either Way I love it!

bad | Reviewer: Julieanne | 2/9/07

Teenagerz:\ | Reviewer: Ivy | 11/5/06

panic is awesome!!! | Reviewer: Vlinder | 10/12/06


this song is so stuck in my head!!! I've like sung it over and over since my day started..'til now! gah! I so love their vocalist, he's gorgeous...
And a reason I like their songs is because of their wide use of words and meaningful lyrics...it's like they're poetic or something---hoho---
i don't know...anyway,But it's better if you do is a great song!!! weeeeee!
