Let's Dance
David Bowie Lyrics


Let's dance
Put on your red shoes and dance the blues
Let's dance
To the song they're playin' on the radio
Let's sway
While color lights up your face
Let's sway
Sway through the crowd to an empty space

If you say run
I'll run with you
And if you say hide
We'll hide
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two
If you should fall into my arms
And tremble like a flower

Let's dance
Let's dance
For fear your grace should fall
Let's dance
For fear tonight is all
Let's sway
You could look into my eyes
Let's sway
Under the moonlight, this serious moonlight

And if you say run
I'll run with you
And if you say hide
We'll hide
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two
If you should fall into my arms
And tremble like a flower

Let's dance
Put on your red shoes and dance the blues
Let's sway
Under the moonlight, this serious moonlight
Let's dance
Let's dance
Let's dance, dance, dance

David Bowie was one of the biggest Humanitarian people you’d ever known, the reason he featured the Aboriginal people in this video was to shine light on them because their Lives Mattered too. David Bowie was against unfair racist mistreatment of fellow human beings. I remember him making MTV to show more black entertainers, and if they didn’t he’d boycott himself. As a black American man I love and respected what David Bowie stood for, may he rest in heaven.

David Bowie is one of the reasons why they started playing black people on MTV. There's an interview on MTV where he advocated for that. David Bowie supported Mark Bolan's child (from the band T-Rex) when he was killed in a car crash. David Bowie helped take care of Kurt Cobain's child after he passed away. David Bowie secretly gave to tons of charities without telling anybody and when he died they all ratted on him LOL. David Bowie was a real one.

Part of this video was shot in the Warrumbungle Ranges, near Coonabarabran, New South Wales, Australia, where I lived for nearly a decade. This was a pleasant surprise while just casually watching this video.

Charles Eubanks

@Wayne Baptiste Who said anything about anyone being racist? Only you came up with that conclusion. Topic was contrary to that.

When you watch the video you watch him standing at the walls singing and the two the guy and the girl dancing then you'll see the guy and the girl again outside and she scrubbing the street and check it out I went through my old music tapes that we used to have and they made CDs you can just rewind it a little bit to hear that one word can't do that with the CD Ziggy Stardust still works and it's still in its original case that I bought it in I've had it since I've been 21 and I will be 70 this November this video is song as my favorite and I even have a pair of red high heel sandals shoes my cousin gave them to me every time that song comes on I think of her and she's not with us no more we would talk on the phone for hours
