Richie, Lionel - Dancing On The Ceiling Lyrics




What is happening here?
Something's going on
That's not quite clear
Somebody turn on the lights
We're gonna have a party
It's starting tonight

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Room is hot and that's good
Some of my friends came by from the neighbourhood
People were starting to climb the walls
Ooh, it looks like everybody is having a ball

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Come on

Everybody starts to lose control
When the music is right
If you see somebody hanging around
Don't get uptight

The only thing we wanna do tonight
Is go round and round
And turn upside down
Come on, let's get down

So come on, let's get loose
Don't hold back
'Cause it ain't no use
Hard to keep your feet on the ground
'Cause when we like to party
We only wanna get down

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Oh, what a feeling, baby
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

What? You say what?
Can't stop now
Just get started
Everybody, clap your hands
Come on

Everybody, let's dance

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling, baby, baby

We wanna dance all night

    Boy, do I remember dancing like that. Then I moved to a small town in Oklahoma. They didn't have a clue about dancing. Needless to say they all two stepped and line danced. Men chewed, dipped and spit. Took me 10 years to adapt. I learned to line dance and shoot pool. Little sister taught me.

    Lionel Richie is one of the most revered American popular singer, songwriter, and producer most admired for his smooth and soulful love ballads of the 1970's and 80's. A highly versatile musician, he was able to perform—and skillfully blend multiple musical styles, most notably funk, soul, rhythm and blues, and country.Over the course of his career, Richie has sold over 90 million records worldwide, making him one of the world's best-selling artists of all time. He won the Grammy Award for his super duper hit 1986 Album of the Year "Dancing on the ceiling".This song bears testimony to this retro-classic.

  82. John Koundouzis

    Lionel Ritchie, just so cool.

  83. Craig M

    Woah, 80's overload!

  84. Bradley Davis

  85. Steve Polverini

    Love that man! He could do no wrong.

  86. Midget Madness

    This is the best song my mum got me in to it because she loves it/0best song in the 80s

  87. OldSchool1500

    For tose who are celebrating the 80s - don't forget: it was THE age (decade) of the Boomers. We were young, we were a lot, and we had fun. Outside we didn't get a damn job, Wall Street made billions instead while our jobs went to China and everybody was shitting his pants because we feared a nuclear war. But we had fun, still believed in the future and not Climate Change bullshit and had the best parties of all time. That I can say, I have seen it all after the 80s and nothing even came close.

  88. Nina

    I wanted to "dance" on the ceiling, after this video came out.
