|B               |             |
 Gather 'round my friends here
Help me forget my hurtin' tears
About the only girl I ever loved
The only one baby
       |B                 |Abm
I gotta dance to keep from cryin' (crying)
     |B                 |Abm
Gotta dance to keep from crying' (crying)

   |E                    |     
Whoa, do the flop (do the flop)
Do the twist (do the twist)
Everybody, it goes like this
         |B                           |Abm
You gotta dance, got me swayin', got me, alright
     |B                           |Abm
Gotta dance, got me swayin', got me, alright

I'm so lonely since we parted
You memory leaves me so broken hearted

I gotta dance to keep from cryin' (crying)
Gotta dance to keep from crying' (crying)

Whoa, do the bird (do the bird)
Do the fly (do the fly)
Come on, gang, you know, by by by, oh yeah

[interlude]

Do the bang, yeah, you can't miss
Everybody, yeah, it goes like this
You gotta dance, got me swayin', got me, alright
Gotta dance, got me swayin', got me, alright

Heartaches can gather 'round
Misery I sure have found

I gotta dance to keep from cryin' (crying)
Gotta dance to keep from crying' (crying)

You goin' softer now, you goin' softer now...
You goin' soft right now, yeah yeah
Everybody clap their hands now...
Alright, yeah, alright, yeah
I want you to go harder now, baby
I want you to go harder now, baby
Yeah yeah, you go harder now
You walk right up, yeah yeah
You go harder now, yeah...
You go hard now, yeah...

You gotta dance, got me swayin', got me, alright
Gotta dance, got me swayin', got me, alright
You gotta dance, got me swayin', got me, alright
Gotta dance, got me swayin', got me, alright

Well, baby, now, it's al... it's alright
