-INTRO-

  C~                       E~
Because we're all so very 21st century
         Am~                        Dm~
You're probably listening to me on some kind of portable stereo
              C~
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~                                                      F~
Or you're sitting in your bedroom on your own with the lights down low
             Dm~                                  G~                     G7~
I'd like to teach you four simple words, so that next time you come to a show
         C~                                           F~                  Fm~
You can sing those words back at me, like they're the only words that you know

-INTRO/CHORUS-

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

-VERSE-

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

-CHORUS-

           C
I want to dance
           E
I want to dance
        Am                                 Dm
I want lust and love and a smattering of romance
                     C
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
I want to dance

-SOLO-

Am Dm C G

-VERSE-

   Am
Is anybody else sick of the music that's churned out
   Dm
By lacklustre scenesters from Shoreditch
             C
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 had to work for their keep
                 Dm
Drove a thousand miles to play the show with no sleep
                 C
Sleeping on the floor at a strangers place
               G
Hungry just to do it all again the next day

-CHORUS-

           C
I want to dance
           E
I want to dance
        Am                                 Dm
I want lust and love and a smattering of romance
                     C
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
I want to dance

-BREAKDOWN-

                           Am(pm)
So, put your hands on your hips
                        Am(pm)
And bring your knees in tight
                        Am(pm)
Yeah, we do this shit together man
             Am(pm)
No fists, no fights

                              Dm
We're not trying to shape the world
                     G
So people think like us
                     C
We just want our own space to dance man
               F
No favours, no fuss

                          Dm
Yeah, on blood, sweat and vinyl we have built ourselves a house
                     G
So if the roof is on fire then we're gonna put it out
                  C
Forget about your bitching and remember that you're blessed
                Fmaj7
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~
This shit wasn't fashionable when I fell in love
       F~                                       Fm.Fm.Fm.Fm.Fm.Fm.Fm~
If the hipsters move on why should I give a fuck

-3/4 CHORUS-

            C riff 2
I want to dance
            E riff2  Am riff 2
I want to dance
                                                                Dm riff 2
I want me some lust, some love and a smattering of that all-time romance

Gradually increase in speed building up to the outro.

                     C riff
But, I'm no good at dancing
                  E riff
Yet I have to do something
 Am riff                                           Dm riff
Tonight I'm gonna play it straight, I'm gonna take my chance

-OUTRO-

                C
Yeah, I want to dance
          E
I want to dance
       Am                                        Dm
I want you and me both to join hands down at the front
                    C                       E
So, the next time I see you, remember these words
      Am
Let's sing like the barricades are down
          Dm
And we'll dance like no one's around, singing
C
