Hope

We Should Be Dancing

Janis Ian/Thom Schuyler

We both smiled and said “I do”
You loved me and I loved you
Now we make love with the TV on
and we wonder where the feeling’s gone
I know it’s not too late
So don’t you think we ought to celebrate?

We should be dancing
We should be cutting the rug
We should be dancing
if we’re so much in love
Why keep it all inside?
Let’s set it free tonight
And hear a little music
Baby, we could use it
We should be dancing

Here we in this Sunday school
Memorizing a list of rules
“Don’t do this” and “Don’t do that”
Ain’t no wonder we feel so bad
If love is heaven-sent,
don’t you wonder where the feeling went?

We should be dancing
We should be cutting the rug
We should be dancing
if we’re so much in love
Why keep it all inside?
Let’s set it free tonight
And play a little Django
Step a little tango
Make a little music
Baby, we could use it
We should be dancing
