The Safety Dance
Men Without Hats Lyrics


We can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
'Cause your friends don't dance
And if they don't dance
Well, they're no friends of mine

Say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come
From out of this world
Leave the real one far behind

And we can dance
Or sing

We can go when we want to
Night is young and so am I
And we can dress real neat
From our hats to our feet
And surprise 'em with the victory cry

Say, we can act if we want to
If we don't, nobody will
And you can act real rude and totally removed
And I can act like an imbecile

And say, we can dance, we can dance
Everything's out of control
We can dance, we can dance
They're doing it from pole to pole
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody look at your hands
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody's taking the chance
Safety dance
Oh well, the safety dance
Ah yes, the safety dance

We can dance if we want to
We've got all your life and mine
As long as we abuse it, never gonna lose it
Everything'll work out right

I say, we can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
Because your friends don't dance
And if they don't dance
Well, they're no friends of mine

I say, we can dance, we can dance
Everything's out of control
We can dance, we can dance
We're doing it from pole to pole
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody look at your hands
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody's taking the chance

Oh well, the safety dance
Ah yes, the safety dance
Oh well, the safety dance
Oh well, the safety dance
Oh yes, the safety dance
Oh, the safety dance, yeah
Well, it's the safety dance
It's the safety dance
Well, it's the safety dance
Well, it's the safety dance
Oh, it's the safety dance
Oh, it's the safety dance

What happened to the comments???
They were literally AS good as watching this!!
Alternative ending to Game of Thrones
If Anakin Skywalker never went to the darkside.
What Americans think the U.K is like!!
The synths on this song are legendary.
That's just a few I can remember.
The threads on these comments were amazing, I will forever miss them .
May they R I P
Fucking liberty 🗽 😑 😒 🙄 😤

I can't believe I've known this song for nearly 40 years, since I was 13 and I've only just found out the video was filmed just up the road from where I live, where I've driven and cycled many times...

And I only got one of the cast of It Aint Half Hot Mum living near me. I feel cheated!

For all those who want to understand this song, the why and how,
12 tone did a very in depth video on it.
I personally love this song.

John Halls
