Graham Parker DANCING FOR MONEY Lyrics

Last updated:


A F#m
When I ask you for a light You don't turn the lights out
A F#m
When I'm looking for a fight You don't punch my lights out
E A D
Sometimes they say Love is invincible
E A D
I wouldn't go as far as to say that
E A D
One thing I know One thing is certain honey
E D
We're not dancing for money ooo oooo

When I ask you for a buck You don't call me deer
When I try to push my luck You don't twist my ear
Sometimes when I'm Blind drunk I see it all
But I can't do Anything about it
I fall on my face And jerk like a puppet honey
Just like dancing for money (then) INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

Familiarity breeds contempt So I turn off the radio
From life's pain I'm not exempt I'm just lucky I can go
Some other place Where there's a sun up high
Right in my face For once in a lifetime
I'm not a slave, I'm not a captain honey
I'm not dancing for money

E A D
I'm not a slave, I'm not a captive
E A D
I'm not in chains Or nailed to a cross
E A D
One thing's for sure One thing is certain honey
E D E D
I'm not dancing for money I'm not dancing for money
A D
Oooh not dancing for money (4 times)
