Just Dance
Lady Gaga Feat. Colby O'Donis Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Red One, Konvict, Gaga (oh, yeah)

I've had a little bit too much, much oh oh woah!
All of the people start to rush, start to rush by.
How does she twist the dance
Can't find my drink, or man.
Where are my keys, I lost my phone.
What's going on out on the floor?
I love this record baby, but I can't see straight anymore.
Keep it cool, what's the name of this club?
I can't remember but it's alright, alright.

Just dance, gonna be okay.
Da da doo doo just dance spin that record babe.
Da-da-doo-doo just dance, gonna be okay.
Duh-duh-duh dance, dance, dance, just dance.

Wish I could shut my playboy mouth.
How'd I turn my shirt inside out? Inside out right.
Control your poison babe
Roses have thorns they say.
And we're all gettin' hosed tonight.
What's going on on the floor?
I love this record baby, but I can't see straight anymore.
Keep it cool, what's the name of this club?
I can't remember but it's alright, alright.

Just dance, gonna be okay.
Da da doo doo just dance spin that record babe.
Da-da-doo-doo just dance, gonna be okay.
Duh-duh-duh dance, dance, dance, just dance.

When I come through on the dance floor checkin' out that catalog.
Can't believe my eyes so many women without a flaw.
And I ain't gonna give it up, steady tryin' to pick it up like the car
I'm a hit it, I'm a hit it and flex until the 'till done until tomorrow yeah.

Shawty I can see that you got so much energy,
The way you twirling up them hips round and round
There's no reason, I know why you can't leave here with me
In the meantime stand, let me watch you break it down and dance

Gonna be okayay da-da-doo-doo
Just dance, spin that record babe.
Da-da-doo-doo Just dance, gonna be okay.
Da-da-doo-doo just dance, spin that record babe.
Da-da-doo-doo just dance, gonna be okay.
Duh-duh-duh dance, dance, dance, just dance

Half psychotic sick-hypnotic
Got my blueprint it's symphonic
Half psychotic sick-hypnotic
Got my blueprint electronic
Half psychotic sick-hypnotic
Got my blueprint it's symphonic
Half psychotic sick-hypnotic
Got my blueprint electronic

Go, use your muscle carve it out work it, hustle
(I got it, just stay close enough to get it)
Don't slow, drive it, clean it Lysol, bleed it
Spend the last dough (I got it) on your pocko (I got it)

Just dance, gonna be okayay.
Da-da-doo-doo just dance, spin that record babe.
Da-da-doo-doo just dance, gonna be okay.
Da-da-doo-doo just dance, spin that record babe.




Da-da-doo-doo just dance, gonna be okay.
Duh-duh-duh dance, dance, dance, just dance.

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Lady Gaga's hit song "Just Dance" describe the experience of being lost in the moment on the dance floor. The opening lines, "I've had a little bit too much, much oh oh woah! All of the people start to rush, start to rush by," suggest that the singer is intoxicated and overwhelmed by the energy of the club. She can't find her drink, her keys, or her phone, but she loves the music and wants to keep dancing. The chorus, "Just dance, gonna be okay," reassures her that everything will be fine as long as she keeps moving to the beat.


The second verse introduces a male voice, Colby O'Donis, who sings about his attraction to the women on the dance floor. He's determined to pick up a girl and keep dancing until daylight. The lines, "Got my blueprint it's electronic," suggest that he sees dance music as a kind of technology that can be harnessed for pleasure and connection. The final verse combines the two perspectives, with Gaga singing about the hypnotic power of the music ("Half psychotic sick-hypnotic, got my blueprint it's symphonic") and O'Donis urging listeners to use their bodies as tools for success ("Go, use your muscle carve it out work it, hustle").


Overall, "Just Dance" is an ode to the joy and release that can be found on the dance floor, as well as a celebration of the technology and energy that makes that experience possible.
