Track Name: Edric Haleen - Dance!
Have your feet felt the rhythm
But you’ve done nothin’ with ‘em
‘Cause your friends don’t think it’s cool?
(Yeah -- I know.
But don’t let it concern you...)

If your blood gets to flowin’
When that beat gets you goin’,
You don’t have to compromise.
You don’t have to apologize.
Just kick up your heels and dance!
Just dance!
Just . . . dance.
Dance!

If you really love yourself then
Who cares what others think?
Show the whole entire world, “Hey!
This is who I am!”
If you’re honest with yourself then
Who gives a damn?
Just share your talents with the world
And don’t let people
Try to talk you
Out of doing
Any of the
Things that make you
Happy . . .

Some guys feel embarrassed
And won’t head out on the floor.
Some guys dance to pick up chicks
But quit if they get shown the door.
Some guys sneer at ballerinas
Saying, “Ballet? What a bore!”
But that’s not true,
‘Cause that’s not you.
So just be you!

Some may laugh and titter
At the spirit that you bring.
There’s no use being bitter . . .
Just do your thing!
So set their hearts atwitter
And let your feet take wing . . .

And you
Just
Dance!

You just dance!
Track Name: Ross Durand - Brand New
It’s like I’m brand new
Learning to walk again
Feel’s so wrong, but everything’s right
Like brand new
Ain’t got much control
but this feeling’s outta site
Feel like jumping out of my skin
But I’m trying to stay cool
Never felt this way before
Until I found you

I got no self control
Want to shout it from the mountains
Want to whisper in your ear (feels so right)
But I don’t know what you’ll say
At the end of the day
Or at the end of the night
Feel so light on my feet
Feeling’s so neat
And just a little swagger will do
Never felt this way before
Until I found you

It’s like I’m brand new
Like learning to walk again
It feel’s so wrong, but everything’s right
Like brand new
Ain’t got much control
But this feeling’s outta site
From my highs to my lows
Anything goes
But I’m trying to stay cool
Never felt this way before
Till I found you
Track Name: Pete Murphy - Dance All Night
I wanna slide right into your point of view
Can't deny that you know just what to do
I wanna glide my way into your soul
The way you look, it don't ever get old

I keep on movin', keep on groovin'
I keep my rhythm to the beatin' of your heart
I keep on pushin', keep on rushin'
I wanna put my arms around you, baby...

We're gonna shine like the brightest colours in bloom
C'mon babe, I wanna dance all night with you
We're gonna fly like starstruck lovers in blue
C'mon babe, I wanna dance all night with you

I've been dancin' too long on my own
Too shy to make the move into your danger zone
But now the time is right to show you what I've got
Let's make it right, make it count, make it hot

I keep on movin', keep on groovin'
I keep my rhythm to the beatin' of your heart
I keep on wishin', keep on hopin'
Keep on prayin' that you'll never leave my side...

We're gonna shine like the brightest colours in bloom
C'mon babe, I wanna dance all night with you
We're gonna fly like starstruck lovers in blue
C'mon babe, I wanna dance all night with you

(Dance all night) Dance all night
(Dance all night) Dance all night
(Dance all night) Dance all night
(Dance all night) Dance all night

We're gonna shine like the brightest colours in bloom
C'mon babe, I wanna dance all night with you
We're gonna fly like starstruck lovers in blue
C'mon babe, I wanna dance all night... (dance all night)...
Dance all night... (dance all night)...
Track Name: Zoe Gray - Smooth
Well, everybody knows I’m not exactly a strapper
But I’m still well-known as a lady trapper
Well you ask, how’s this rapper so goddamn dapper
And the secret’s in the toe of my trusty tapper
I’m a swinging, jiving, music man
But, of course, you knew that long before I began
What, you haven’t heard of me? Well I’m big in Japan
Wear a fedora every day because I motherfucking can

Well, I’m so smooth like peanut butter
When they see me, women’s eyelids flutter
I’m refined and suave and debonair
When I pirouette all the females stare
Cause I’m smooth
So smooth

Now, I know what you’re thinking, how’s this fella so spry
He got moves so sick that I think I’m gonna cry
Baby, my shoulder’s here, but I’ll tell you why:
I do it for you, cause I’m a really nice guy
I’m elegant and classy, you’re a little more concise
You’re a sweet apple pie, but I’ll add a little spice
I’m attracted to your brains, but the rest is pretty nice
Well, I told you once, now I’ll tell you twice

That I’m so smooth like a bowling lane
My vocabulary’s better than the late Mark Twain
I’m refined and suave and debonair
When I chassé all the females stare
Cause I’m smooth
So smooth

Baby don’t you know you want me
Want my dancing feet
Of course you do, how couldn’t you
After my sick beat

Well, I’m so smooth like whipping cream
When they’re with me, women want to scream
I’m refined and suave and debonair
When I wiggle-wiggle-wiggle all the females stare
Cause I’m so smooth like Morgan Freeman
I’m a high-class bad-ass dancing demon
I’m the slickest snake in the universe
And, baby, you could do, like, so much worse
Cause I’m smooth
Track Name: Megalodon - My New Straight Jacket (Shadow)
The day had dawned and I stepped in
I spun around to see a urinal
I tipped my hat and walked away
I snapped and snapped and clicked my RAT pedal

With a little bit of flash, and a lot of John Cleese
Adjust my hat like I'm Bob Fosse

My mother wanted a ballerina
but I just wanted to be Gene Kelly
I love myself in my straight jacket
but I must say, I dance like Ed Grimley

I'm on the edge when the sun comes up
I spread my wings until they're fully fanned
I wish I could make out with my hat
It's embarrassing, they don't understand

With a little bit of flash, and a lot of John Cleese
Adjust my hat like I'm Bob Fosse

My mother wanted a ballerina
but I just wanted to be Gene Kelly
I love myself in my straight jacket
but I must say, I dance like Ed Grimley

With a little bit of flash, and a lot of John Cleese
Adjust my hat like I'm Bob Fosse

I kick the sun and smash the flowers
The windmill of life should never stop
My hat's become my new straight jacket
I'm not on top, I am a top
