I wrote an editorial got published in the NY times
Talkin bout the morals in America that’s on the decline
The preacher from the church’s on the phone and he’s talking me blind
But I don’t hear a word cause Courtney’ is dancing tonight
I told my self that I shouldn’t go there no more
but Im talking to a man that’s really raving outta control
Strugglin with a lie & fightin with all of my might
Im’ losing again cause Courtney’s dancing tonight X2
Dance for me pretty thing, You know what I want
Shake it, Shake it all around, Show me what you got, Whatcha got
Tomorrow I speak to the class that’ll graduate
And Ill say things to inspire and motivate
How do I tell em the way I feel inside?
The only thing that matter ’z that Courtney’s dancing tonight
I got a little quite cause I finally put the kids to sleep
The church is on hold and tomorrow Ill finish that speech
My wifes on the net booking us a getaway flight.
And Im in walkin’ out the door cause Courtney’s dancing tonight.
Dance for me pretty thing, You got what I want
Shake it, Shake it on and on, You know that your hot
Dance for me little one we got what we need
Shake it, shake it all around. Take all that you can steal
Dance for me round and round, You know what I want
Shake it, Shake it up and down, no said you can’t.
