France Submit Correct Lyrics

Way down in the south of france all the ladies love to dance
Kick their heels up in the air snap their fingers for romance
While the gentlemen compare blonde or black or auburn hair
Check the motion and the style oh, you know they take their while
Hey, to make the motion more complete, yeah, to make it more a treat
Club d'jour is where to go come on down and see the show

When the rhythm's really right you can burn it down tonight
When the singing's really fine sweet as spanish sherry wine

When the club can't contain the beat it just rolls out in the street
Spills on down the avenue bringing dancers to their feet
When it's good as it can be it gets better wait and see
Oh, these folks don't ever sleep till they're passed out in the street

Way down in the south of france all the ladies love to dance
Clap their hands and walk on air, yeah, the feeling's really there
Won't you take a little taste raise it to your charming face?

When the rhythm's really right you can burn it down tonight
When the singing's really fine sweet as spanish sherry wine

Go on take a chance, the ladies do love to dance
