Lyrics For: Come Dancing

    They put a parking lot on a piece of land
    Where the supermarket used to stand
    Before that they put up a bowling alley

    On the site that used to be the local palais
    That's where the big bands used to come and play
    My sister went there on a Saturday

    Come dancing
    All her boyfriends used to come and call
    Why not come dancing, it's only natural?

    Another Saturday, another date
    She would be ready but she'd always make 'em wait
    In the hallway, in anticipation

    He didn't know the night would end up in frustration
    He'd end up blowing all his wages for the week
    All for a cuddle and a peck on the cheek

    Come dancing,
    That's how they did it when I was just a kid
    And when they said come dancing, my sister always did

    My sister should have 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 can see them in the moonlight
    Two silhouettes saying goodnight by the garden gate

    The day they knocked down the palais
    My sister stood and cried
    The day they knocked down the palais
    Part of my childhood died, just died

    Now I'm grown up and playing in a band
    And there's a car park where the pale 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 knows they get away with things she never could
    But if I asked her I wonder if she would

    Come dancing
    Come on sister, have yourself a ball
    Don't be afraid to come dancing, it's only natural

    Come dancing, just like the palais on a Saturday
    And all her friends will come dancing
    Where the big bands used to play
