Dave Tompkins :: Music Database. So I play along when I hear that special song I'm gonna be the one who gets it right You better move when you're swingin' round the room Looks like magic's solely ours tonight But I don't feel like dancin' When the old Joanna plays My heart could take a chance But my two feet can't find a way You'd think that I could muster up A little soft-shoe gentle sway But I don't feel like dancin' No sir, no dancin' today Don't feel like dancin', dancin' Even if I find nothin' better to do Don't feel like dancin', dancin' Why'd you break it down when I'm not in the mood? Don't feel like dancin', dancin' Rather be home with the one in the bed till dawn with you Cities come and cities go just like the old empires When all you do is change your clothes and call that versatile You got so many colors, make a blind man so confused Then why can't I keep up when you're the only thing I lose? So I just pretend that I know which way to bend And I'm gonna tell the whole world that you're mine Just please understand when I see you clap your hands If you stick around I'm sure that it'll be fine But I don't feel like dancin' When the old Joanna plays My heart could take a chance But my two feet can't find a way You'd think that I could muster up A little soft-shoe gentle sway But I don't feel like dancin' No sir, no dancin' today Don't feel like dancin', dancin' Even if I find nothin' better to do Don't feel like dancin', dancin' Why'd you break it down when I'm not in the mood?
