I Was Dancing In The Lesbian Bar
Jonathan Richman Lyrics


Well I was dancing at a night club one Friday night
And that night club bar was a little uptight
Yeah, I was dancing all alone a little self conscious
When some kids came up and said, "for dancing come with us."
And soon

I was dancing in a lesbian bar.
I was dancing in a lesbian bar.

Well I was dancing in the lesbian bar
In the industrial zone.
I was dancing with my friends
And dancing alone.
Well the first bar things were alright
But in this bar, things were Friday night.
In the first bar things were just alright.
This bar things were Friday night.

I was dancing in a lesbian bar.
I was dancing in a lesbian bar.

Well I was dancing in the lesbian bar
Way downtown
I was there to check the scene
And hang around
Well the first bar things were stop and stare
But in this bar things were laissez faire
In the first bar things were stop and stare
In this bar things were lassez faire.

I was dancing in a lesbian bar.
I was dancing in a lesbian bar.

In the first bar folks were drinking sips
But in this bar they could shake their hips,
In the first bar they were drinking sips
In this bar they could shake their hips.

I was dancing in a lesbian bar.
I was dancing in a lesbian bar.

I was dancing in a lesbian bar.
I was dancing in a lesbian bar.

Well in the first bar, things were okay
But in this bar things were more my way
In the first bar things were just okay
But in this bar things were done my way.

I was dancing in a lesbian bar.
I was dancing in a lesbian bar.

Well in the first bar things were controlled
But in this bar things were Rock and Roll
In the first bar things were so controlled
In this bar things were way way bold.

I was dancing in a lesbian bar.
I was dancing in a lesbian bar.

Damn, Mac Demarco really was influenced by him. Not just as an artist either.

@David Stockwell II It’s funny because Lou Reed’s personality is pretty much the opposite of Richman’s

Saturated Neō Wax

fr, Lou Reed is Jesus 2.0

David Stockwell II

I definitely agree, but I think we can ultimately thank Lou Reed maybe?

I love how he's one of the fathers of punk rock.

There is just something so likeable about Jonathan
He seems a great guy...... As well as a great talent

@Sean Green My band opened for him many years ago and he was just a great guy, as far as we were concerned. He listened to our entire set and was affable and complimentary. Nicer than most of the local bands we played with.
