Let's Dance to Joy Division
by The Wombats

I'm back in Liverpool
And everything seems the same
But I worked something out last night
That changed this little boy's brain

A small piece of advice
That took twenty-two years in the making
And I will break it for you now
Please learn from my mistakes
Please learn from my mistakes

Let's dance to Joy Division
And celebrate the irony
Everything is going wrong
But we're so happy

Let's dance to Joy Division
And raise our glass to the ceiling
'Cause this could all go so wrong
But we're so happy
Yeah, we're so happy

So, if you're ever feeling down
Grab your purse and take a taxi
To the darkest side of town
That's where we'll be

And we will wait for you
And lead you through the dance floor
Up to the DJ booth
You know what to ask for
You know what to ask for

Go ask for Joy Division
And celebrate the irony
Everything is going wrong
But we're so happy

Let's dance to Joy Division
And raise our glass to the ceiling
'Cause this could all go so wrong
But we're so happy
Yeah, we're so happy

Let the love tear us apart
I found the cure for a broken heart
Let it tear us apart

Let the love tear us apart
I found the cure for a broken heart
Let it tear us apart (let it tear us apart)

So, let the love tear us apart
I found the cure for a broken heart
Let it tear us apart (let it tear us apart)

So, let the love tear us apart
I found the cure for a broken heart
Let it tear us apart, let it tear us apart, let it tear us apart

Let's dance to Joy Division
And celebrate the irony
Everything is going wrong
But we're so happy

Let's dance to Joy Division
And raise our glass to the ceiling
'Cause this could all go so wrong
But we're so happy
Yeah, we're so happy

So happy
Yeah, we're so happy
So happy
Yeah, we're so happy

For people who don’t understand the meaning behind the song, the singer has stated in multiple interviews he was in a bar in Liverpool when “love will tear us apart” by joy division came on. The singer of the wombats (murph) finds it ironic that people got up and started dancing happily to a song which talks about very dark subjects hence the irony
