Will You Dance?

Janis Ian

Someone is waiting
Over by the window,
just beyond the stairwell someone's crying
Drowning in the words of the prophets
that are written for the dead and the dying
Someone's lying. No one's buying.

Someone is dying.
Panic in the streets
Can't get no relief, someone escaping
Waiting on a line for the holy revolution
Parading illusion
Someone's using. Most amusing

Will you dance, will you dance?
Smell of caviar and roses
Teach your children all the poses
How familiar are we all…
Will you dance, will you dance?
Light fantastic in the morning
How romantic to be whoring
Boring though it may be
Who'll survive
if you and I should fall

Someone is bleeding
Crimson in the night
Strangers, in the light a sudden meeting
Greeting one by one every life runs
flashing before those dashing eyes

Will you dance, will you dance?
take a chance on romance
and a big surprise?
Will you dance, will you dance?
Take a chance on romance
and a big surprise?
