All She Wants To Do Is Dance Lyrics

by Don Henley

They're pickin' up the prisoners and puttin' 'em in a pen
And all she wants to do is dance, dance
Rebels been rebels since I don't know when
And all she wants to do is dance

Molotov cocktail the local drink
And all she wants to do is dance, dance
They mix 'em up right in the kitchen sink
And all she wants to do is dance

Crazy people walkin' 'round with blood in their eyes
And all she wants to do is dance, dance
Wild-eyed pistol wavers who ain't afraid to die
And all she wants to do is, all she wants to do is dance
And make romance

She can't feel the heat comin' off the street
She wants to party, she wants to get down
All she wants to do is, all she wants to do is dance

Well the government bugged the men's room
In the local disco lounge
And all she wants to do is dance, dance
To keep the boys from sellin'
All the weapons they could scrounge
And all she wants to do is dance

But that don't keep the boys from makin' a buck or two
And all she wants to do is dance, dance
They still can sell the army all the drugs that they can do
And all she wants to do is, all she wants to do is dance
And make romance

Well, we barely made the airport for the last plane out
As we taxied down the runway I could hear the people shout
They said, "Don't come back here Yankee!"
But if I ever do I'll bring more money
'Cause all she wants to do is dance
And make romance

Never mind the heat comin' off the street
She wants to party, she wants to get down
All she wants to do is, all she wants to do is dance
And make romance, all she wants to do is dance
