"Swing Dance Saturday Night"
Music and lyrics by David Savage

Verse 1

When you go dancin' on a Saturday night
Hey, you know you gotta swing
East Coast and West Coast, Shag and Lindy Hop
Ask anybody and swing until you drop, yeah

Chorus 1

Dance your pants off, little sister
Dance your pants off, little brother
Dance your pants off, hug each other
On a swing dance Saturday night

Bridge 1

If you've been thinkin' you've got two left feet
There's lots of teachers that you've just gotta meet:
Tom and Debra, Dabe and Janelle,
You'll learn to move your feet and you'll feel real swell

Verse 2

Wear a zoot suit or t-shirt and jeans
Hey, you know you gotta swing
Triple step, step step, smooth whips and dips
Follows and leads show swing dancin's hip, yeah

Chorus 2

Dance your pants off, little sister
Dance your pants off, little brother
Dance your pants off, kiss each other
On a swing dance Saturday night

Bridge 2

Michael and Poppy, Gary and Sue,
David and Nina and Kate, the Jam Cellar crew,
Donna and Mike, Jane at K2
You'll learn to lead and follow, and you'll have fun too

Verse 3

Eight week wonders and aerials in the jam
Hey, you know you gotta swing
Hand Dance or Charleston, since 1928
Hit the breaks, and don't you be late

Chorus 3

Dance your pants off, little sister
Dance your pants off, little brother
Dance your pants off, love each other
On a swing dance Saturday night

Bridge 3

Savoy and Smooth Lindy, Jive and Bal-Swing
Exciting new moves, swing dancing's the thing
Hundreds of styles, thousands of moves
Lots of great bands, you dance to the grooves, yeah

Chorus 4

Dance your pants off, little sister
Dance your pants off, little brother
Dance your pants off, love each other
On a swing dance Saturday night
On a swing dance Saturday night
On a swing…dance…Saturday…night
Dance your pants off!
