I Can't Dance
Genesis Lyrics


Hot sun beating down
Burning my feet just walking around
Hot sun makin' me sweat
Gators getting close, hasn't got me yet

I can't dance
I can't talk
Only thing about me is the way I walk
I can't dance
I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling everything

Blue jeans sittin' on the beach
Her dog's talking to me, but she's out of reach
Mhm, she's got a body under that shirt
But all she wants to do is rub my face in the dirt

'Cause I can't dance
I can't talk
Only thing about me is the way I walk
I can't dance
I can't sing
I'm just standing here sellin'

Oh and checking everything is in place
You never know who's lookin' on

Young punk spillin' beer on my shoes
Fat guy's talkin' to me tryin' to steal my blues
Thick smoke, see her smiling through
I never thought so much could happen just shootin' pool

But I can't dance
I can't talk
The only thing about me is the way that I walk
I can't dance
I can't sing
I'm just standing here sellin'

Oh and checking everything is in place
You never know who's looking on
A perfect body with a perfect face
Mhm

No, I can't dance
I can't talk
The only thing about me is the way I walk
No, I can't dance
I can't sing
I'm just standing here sellin' everything

No, I can't walk
No, I can't dance
No, no, no, I can't dance
No, I said, I can't sing

Lyrics
Hot sun beating down
Burning my feet just walking around.
Hot sun making me sweat
'Gators getting close, hasn't got me yet
I can't dance, I can't talk.
The only thing about me is the way I walk.
I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling everything.
Blue jeans sitting on the beach,
Her dog's talking to me, but she's out of reach.
She's got a body under that shirt,
But all she wants to do is rub my face in the dirt.
Cause, I can't dance, I can't talk.
The only thing about me is the way I walk.
No, I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling.
And checking everything is in place,
You never know who's looking on.
Young punk spilling beer on my shoes,
Fat guy's talking to me trying to steal my blues.
Thick smoke, see her smiling through.
I never thought so much could happen just shooting pool.
But I can't dance, I can't talk.
The only thing about me is the way I walk.
I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling
And checking everything is in place
You never know who's looking on
A perfect body with a perfect face

If Phil Collins is retiring this year, like the news says, he's a legend and I'm glad that we had the chance to hear him throughout all of his different musical styles.

James Terry

Creio bishop is a hero.

Texas Gonzo

Ahmen to both my fellow fans. Rock on. But damnnnn i miss Neil Peart 😣

The First of the Last Ones

Agree because just like other musicians he makes music and songs that reaches out to you.

Danixa T

wonderful, perfect

Alden R. Davis

#Genesis #PhilCollins #80smusic If you're still loving this in 2022, you got good taste in music like.

Phillip Mennor

Kick ass song with a great sense of humor and style. Genesis at it's best and most unexpected!

Bertrand Zerpersande

Reminds me of their video for Trick of the Tail.,

Phillip Mennor

@MobileRDS  while this song doesn't fit their style, it's still an unexpected and fun classic. It was like they were mocking themselves for not being hip.

Phillip Mennor

@R P don't you have anything else better to do than be a grammar nazi?
