Come Dancing

In the style of

The Kinks

Lyrics

they put a parkin' lot
on a piece of land
where the
supermarket
used to stand

before that
they put up
a bowlin' alley
on the sight
that used to be
the local palley

that's where
the big bands
used to come and play
my sister went there
on a saturday

come dancin'
all her boyfriends
used to come and call
why not come dancin'
it's only natural

another saturday
another date
she would be ready
but she'd always
make him wait

in the hallway
in anticipation
he didn't know
the night
would end up
in frustration

he'd end up
blowin' all his wages
for the week
all for a cuddle
and a peck
on the cheek

come dancin'
that's how they did it
when i was just a kid
and when they said
come dancin'
my sister always did

my sister
should've come in
at midnight
and my mom
would always
sit up and wait

it always ended up
in a big row
when my sister
used to get home late

out of my window
i could see them
in the moonlight
two silhouettes
sayin' goodnight
by the garden gate

the day
they knocked down
the palley
my sister
stood and cried

the day
they knocked down
the palley
part of
my childhood died
just died

now i'm grown up
and playin' in a band
and there's a car park
where the palley
used to stand

my sister's married
and she lives on
an estate
her daughters go out
now it's her turn
to wait

she makes a getaway
with friends
she never could
but if i asked her
i wonder if she would

come dancin'
come on sister
have yourself a ball
don't be afraid
to come dancin'
it's only natural

come dancin'
just like the palley
on a saturday

and all
your friends'll
come dancin'
where the big bands
used to play
