Private Dancer
No Question Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Let me tell you about your girlfriend
I know you think that she's your best friend
True blue 'till the very end
I gotta tell ya 'cause I can't pretend now

Last night I was all alone
Went to the club just to get it on
She was there in a laced out thong
Clap kissing and you know she's wrong, yeah

[Chorus]
Private dancer, lady of the street
She always dance every day of the week
She do her thing when she on her creep
For the right price she'll be in your sheets

Private dancer, lady of the street
She always dance every day of the week
She do her thing when she on her creep
For the right price she'll be in your sheets

I hate to tell you but you gotta know
I saw her move to the top of the floor
In 15 minutes she had changed her clothes
Trying to play it off like I didn't know

Your girl was the star that night
Everybody got a third that night
A hundred dollars you could take a ride
They got paper but it still ain't right

[Chorus]

I can't tell you how to feel
All I know it just ain't right
It just ain't right
I've got to let you know the deal
Gotta let her know leave her bags at the door
Tell her that she won't be dancing for you no more





[Chorus: Repeats]

Overall Meaning

The song 'Private Dancer' by No Question tells a story about a girlfriend who is cheating on her boyfriend by working as a private dancer. The lyrics start with the singer telling the boyfriend that he knows his girlfriend is not a faithful partner, but he cannot keep it quiet anymore. He goes on to describe how he saw her dancing in a club, wearing revealing clothing and kissing other men. The chorus reinforces the idea that the girlfriend is a private dancer, available for anyone at any time in exchange for money.


The second verse continues with the singer explaining how the girlfriend is making a lot of money, but he still thinks that what she's doing is not right. He saw her change into different clothes after just 15 minutes of dancing in the club. The girlfriend becomes the star of the night, and everyone is interested in getting a piece of her. The last part of the song is an appeal from the singer to his friend to break up with his girlfriend and tell her that he won't let her dance for him anymore.
