Come Dancing - The Punters

(Backwards Strums)

G                                    
They put a parking lot on a piece of land
D                               G
Where the supermarket used to stand.
G                           
Before that they put up a bowling alley
D                                  G
On the site that used to be the local pally.
C                            G
That's where the big bands used to come and play.
D                         G
My sister went there on a Saturday.

[Chorus]
     C
Come dancing,
                   G
Come on sister, have yourself a ball.
             D              C    G
Why not come dancing? it's only natural

riff

G
Another Saturday, another date.
D                                        G
She would be ready but she's always make them wait.
G
In the hallway, in anticipation,
D                                         G
He didn't know the night would end up in frustration.
C                            G
He'd end up blowing all his wages for the week
D                             G
All for a cuddle and a peck on the cheek.

[Chorus]
    C
Come dancing,
                           G
That's how they did it when I was just a kid,
                        D            C           G
And when they said come dancing, My sister always did.

riff

Em                   D              C
My sister should have come in at midnight,
Em                  D              C
And my mom would always sit up and wait.
Em          D              C
It always ended up in a big row
Em                D              C
And my sister used to get her way

 G                          D
(spoken) Out of my window I can see them in the moonlight,
D                                     G                       G
Two silhouettes saying goodnight by the garden gate. (Mom yells at them...)

Em           D                C
The day they knocked down the pally
Em       D          C
My sister stood and cried.
Em           D              C
The day they knocked down the pally
Em         D          C
Part of my childhood died

Em D C D  Em D C D Em D C D Em D C D

G
Now I'm grown up and playing in a band,
D                                            G
They're parking cars where the pally used to stand
G
My sister's married and she lives down in the states
D                                         G
Her girls go out now it's her turn to wait.
C                                 G
She knows they get away with things she never could,

But if I asked her I wonder if she would,

[Chorus]
C
Come dancing,
                G      
Come on sister, have yourself a ball.
             D          C      G
Why not come dancing, It's only natural.
         C
Come dancing,
C                    G
Down at the pally on a Saturday.
                 D                 C              Em
Why not come dancing, Where the big bands used to play.
