   C/G~                    E~
Because we're all so very 21st century,
         Am~                        C*           Dm~
you're probably listening to me on some form of portable stereo.
              C/G~
Maybe you're sitting at the back of the bus,
                         E~
or it's running up your sleeve and you're across from your boss,
           Am~                                          C*         Dm~
or you're sitting in your bedroom on your own with the lights down low.
             D5                                  G~
I'd like to teach you four simple words, so that next time you come to a show
         C/G~                                           F~
you can sing those words back at me, like they're the only words that you know.

(start strumming here and pluck alternate bass notes, you can hear this in the song)

           C/G 
I want to dance.
           E
I want to dance.
        Am                            C*     Dm
I want lust and love and a smattering of romance.
                     C/G
But, I'm no good at dancing,
                      E
and yet I have to do something.
   Am
Tonight I'm gonna play it straight,
           C*      Dm
I'm gonna take my chance.
           C/G~
I want to dance.

**Verse: **

      Am
Heigh ho. Heigh ho. Heigh ho
              Dm
We're heading out to the punk rock show.
                C/G
Colleagues and friends condescend with a smile.
                  G
Yeah but this is my culture, man, this is my home.
           Am
A large crowd masses, gathers at the gate, yeah,
                 Dm
the doors are at 7 and the show starts at 8,
            C/G
a few precious hours in a space of our own
                        G
and when the band comes on the only thing I really know.

**Chorus: **

           C/G
I want to dance.
           E
I want to dance.
        Am                                 Dm
I want lust and love and a smattering of romance.
                     C/G
But, I'm no good at dancing,
                      E
and yet I have to do something.
   Am
Tonight I'm gonna play it straight,
                   Dm
I'm gonna take my chance.
           C/G
I want to dance.

      Am                                                Dm
Is anybody else sick of the music Thatís churned out by lacklustre scenesters from Shoreditch 
             C/G
Oh, it's all sex, drugs and sins,
like they're extras from Skins
          G
but it's okay, because they don't really mean it.
        Am
I want bands who need to work for their keep
                  Dm
drive a thousand miles and play the show with no sleep.
                 C/G
Sleeping on the floor around a strangers place,
               G
hungry just to do it all again the next day.

**breakdown: **

                       Am
Put your hands on your hips,
                         Am
and bring your knees in tight.
                         Am
Yeah, we do this thing together, man.
              Am
No fists, no fights.
                              Dm
We're not trying to save the world.
                       G
Some people think like us.
                      C/G
We just want our own space to dance man.
               Am
No favours, no fuss.

                          Dm
Yeah, on blood, sweat and bile we're gonna build ourselves a house
                        G
where if the roof is on fire then we're gonna put it out.
                   C/G
Forget about your bitching and remember that you're blessed,
                 F
punk is for the kids who never fit in with the rest. All right.

Dm~
Somebody told that music with guitars
    G~
was going out of fashion and I had to laugh.
     C/G~
This shit wasn't fashionable when I fell in love.
         F~                                      Fm    
If the 'hipsters' move on, why should I give a fuck?
