Men Without Hats - The Safety Dance Lyrics




We can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
'Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
Well, they're no friends of mine

Say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind

And we can dance
(Dancé!)

We can go when we want to
The night is young and so am I
And we can dress real neat from our hats to our feet
And surprise 'em with the victory cry

Say, we can act if we want to
If we don't, nobody will
And you can act real rude and totally removed
And I can act like an imbecile

And say, we can dance, we can dance
Everything's out of control
We can dance, we can dance
They're doing it from pole to pole
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody look at your hands
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody's taking the chance
Safety dance
Oh well, the safety dance
Ah yes, the safety dance

We can dance if we want to
We've got all your life and mine
As long as we abuse it, never gonna lose it
Everything'll work out right

I say, we can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
Because your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
Well, they're no friends of mine

I say, we can dance, we can dance
Everything's out of control
We can dance, we can dance
We're doing it from pole to pole
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody look at your hands
We can dance, we can dance
Everybody's taking the chance

Oh well, the safety dance
Ah yes, the safety dance
Oh well, the safety dance
Oh well, the safety dance
Oh yes, the safety dance
Oh, the safety dance, yeah
Well, it's the safety dance
It's the safety dance
Well, it's the safety dance
Oh, it's the safety dance
Oh, it's the safety dance
Oh, it's the safety dance

  40. Tymbus

    In answer to people asking why this ends with shots of war and bombs dropping a couple of answers spring to mind: In the Eighties we in the West lived in fear of nuclear war as the USA squared off against the USSR. So dancing may well be a metaphor for war. However, while capitalist countries were undergoing modernisation, ideologically culture became nostalgic and regressive. Italian scholar Umberto Eco wrote of a return to the middle ages, others felt we were entering a new Dark Ages. So this video may be playing with those contemporaneous ideas .

Really, this video had 5k of views in January of this year and now it's over 100k! I don't know if there's something very good that brought you here, but I have to thank you all. I did this "remaster" just for fun, and it's good to see that a lot of people liked it. Thank you so much again, I hope YouTube doesn't remove this video, I'm not getting profit, it's just for your entertainment.
