Everybody Dance lyrics

Everybody Dance

(Couples spin around the dance floor, while others sign up for
The dance marathon.)

Mick's picks: (on the bandstand)
Life's a party
Why don't you come to the steel pier?
No one's ever gloomy or glum
At the steel pier

Ladies and gentlemen, your marathon host...mick hamilton!

Mick:
Live! From the glorious marine ballroom on the world famous steel pier!
It's the 1933 atlantic city dance marathon! Coming to you tonight and
Every night on w f p g. You know, folks, i have run marathons from
Catalina to kalamazoo and never have i seen a dance floor filled with
More confident couples! Each couple certain they can outlast the others
And claim that pot of gold worth $2,000! In just a few moments, this
Glorious marathon will get underway! And suddenly, everyone's earthly
Cares and woes will vanish into ether as our boys and girls do what
The smart set does to pass the time...

When you feel the
World is sitting
On your shoulders,
Dance!

When your troubles
Feel as big as
Ten ton boulders,
Dance!

Dance your blues off,

Mick:
Tap bad news off,
Shag your shoes off
And worries waltz away.

When you feel an anger deep inside
That smolders,
Dance!

Dance, mister,
Dance, sister!
Come on everybody, dance!

Gentlemen our clock is telling us you have just five minutes before
The starting gun. And while you're claiming your girls - i'll show
You mine! Meet mick's picks! Come on, gals, let's heat it up.

Mick's picks:
Dance! Dance! Dance! Dance! Dance!


Mick: mick's picks:
Dance your blues off, ahhh
Tap bad news off, ahhh
Tip tap tip tap tip
Shag your shoes off your shoes off
And worries and worries
Waltz away, waltz away,
Away... Away...

Mick: mick's picks:
When you feel an 0000
Anger deep inside
That smolders,
Mick & mick's picks:
Dance!
Dance!
Dance, mister,
Dance, sister!
Come on
Everybody, dance!

All:
Everybody dance
Everybody dance
Everybody dance
Everybody dance
Dance! Dance! Dance! Dance!

Mick:(to the band)
That's right boys, give me some sass!

Man from couple #46:
Hey hey, take a look at this? Brand new step!

Mr. Walker:
All right, separate. You can bunny hug
But you can't grizzly bear.

Man:
But this is how we get a sponsor.

Mr. Walker:
This is how we get shut down.

Mick:
Everybody, rhumba! Well, wah wah wah, look who just joined up - let's
Throw the spotlight on olympic champion johnny adel! And his partner,
And first time marathoner, dora foster. How about it, johnny? You gonna
Break a few records for us? Ah, ah! Businessmen! Do you like what you see?
Sponsor your favorites. They get your vote of confidence! You get their
Backs. And while you're deciding just who's going to be your sweet patootie,
Why not consider couple number 17. Go on now - let that cat meow meow meow!
That's brother and sister sensation, bette and buddy becker! Now that's
Floor polish. Come on everybody, let's rip up the joint.

Contestants:
When you feel the
World is sitting
On your shoulders,

Rita:
Oh, it's you again.

Bill:
You're still waiting for your partner, huh?

Rita:
Yes, i'm sure he'll be here any minute. But thanks for asking.

Contestants:
When your troubles
Feel as big as
Ten ton boulders,

Bill:
Because if your partner doesn't show i'm still available.

Rita:
Well, you'll be the first to know. I promise. Thanks again.

Contestants:
Dance your blues off,
Tap bad news off,
Shag your shoes off
And worries waltz away.

When you feel
An anger deep inside
That smolders,
Dance! Dance!
Dance, mister,
Dance, sister!
Come on
Everybody, dance!
