Lyrics

[Verse 1] On the floors of Tokyo-o Or down in London town to go, go A-with the record selection and the mirror's reflection I'm a-dancing with myself Oh, when there's no one else in sight A-in the crowded lonely night Well, I wait so long for my love vibration And I'm dancing with myself [Chorus] Oh, oh, dancing with myself Oh, oh, dancing with myself When there's nothing to lose, and there's nothing to prove And I'm dancing with myself, oh, oh, uh-oh [Verse 2] If I looked all over the world And there's every type of girl But your empty eyes Seem to pass me by Leave me dancing with myself So let's sink another drink 'Cause it'll give me time to think If I had the chance, I'd ask the world to dance And I'll be dancing with myself [Chorus] Oh, oh, dancing with myself Oh, oh, dancing with myself When there's nothing to lose, and there's nothing to prove And I'm dancing with myself, oh, oh, uh-oh [Bridge] Oh, oh, uh-oh, oh Oh, oh, uh-oh Oh, uh-uh, oh, ow! [Guitar solo] [Verse 3] Well, if I looked all over the world And there's every type of girl But your empty eyes Seem to pass me by Leave me dancing with myself So let's sink another drink 'Cause it'll give me time to think If I had the chance, I'd ask the world to dance And I'll be dancing with myself [Chorus 2] Oh, oh, dancing with myself Oh, oh, dancing with myself If I had the chance, I'd ask the world to dance If I had the chance, I'd ask the world to dance If I had the chance, I'd ask the world to dance Oohhhhhaaaawwww!! Oh, oh, uh-oh Oh, oh, uh-oh Oh, oh, uh-oh Oh, oh, uh-oh [Outro] (Dancing with myself, oh, oh) Oh, it's all wet (Dancing with myself, oh, oh) And I'll sweat (Dancing with myself, oh, oh) And I'll sweat, sweat, sweat, sweat (Dancing with myself, oh, oh) Sweat, sweat, sweat, sweat (Dancing with myself, oh, oh) Sweat, sweat, sweat, sweat (Dancing with myself, oh, oh) Sweat, sweat, sweat, sweat, sweat Oh! Dancing with myself, oh! Ow! [Repeat and fade]
