Lyrics

HE CAN DANCE


I'VE WATCHED YOU COME AND GO
FROM THE BARS AND THE PERSONALS
YOU'RE NEVER SATISFIED
WITH THE MEN THAT YOU FIND INSIDE
NOW ONE'S CAUGHT YOUR EYE
STILL YOU THINK IT'S A BIG DISGUISE
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
AN ENGRAVED INVITE TO AN OPEN DOOR

IT'S CLEAR TO ME THAT THERE'S SOMETHING THERE
BESIDES HIS SMILE AND THAT HEAD OF HAIR
IF I WERE YOU I WOULD TAKE A CHANCE
I HEAR HE COOKS AND HE CAN DANCE

YOU CAN WAIT AROUND
BUT DON'T BE SURPRISED IF THAT TRAIN LEAVES TOWN
GET YOURSELF ON TRACK
THIS TICKET'S ONE WAY, DON'T LOOK BACK


HE'LL REVIVE A HEART SO TIRED
MAYBE HE WILL LIGHT THE FIRE
TAKE A RISK AND TAKE A HAND
HE'S ALL OF THAT AND HE CAN DANCE

This is a great song..... What are you not on the voice......

Lots of energy and a nice groove. Melodic song, well-played with a strong lead vocal and a Country Pop vibe. All the instruments were balanced and the vocal is out front without being loud. Excellent.

This is really good!! The song is energetic, catchy with really strong lyrics, a great hook, a great arrangement (and players). Vocal is TOPS!!! (one of the best I've heard on this site). Amazing job with everything!!

Awesome song. A hit for sure. Love the violins and that voice is that of an angel. Really enjoyed this song. The instrumentation, as a hole was perfect, as well.

Very nice song! It is fun and has a great tempo. Great hook.

Oh wow, what a tightly crafted song. Tells such a real story...the girl who's "still looking" in the bars and the personal ads and finally has one on the line. Singer urges her, "Take a chance". I love the "I hear he can cook and he can dance." GREAT lyric writing. This writer knows "word economy". How to say a lot simply and really get the point across. The hook is impeccable. I just love the whole song. If it's a true story, I'd like to hear how it turned out. The instrumentation is oh so perfect...loved the fiddle especially. Crystal clear vocals and terrific performance. Favorite lyric: Engraved invite to an open door. Wow. 10 stars!

Retro country--nicely done. Wonderful vibe that I wouldn't change.

Love this. Great lyrics, good idea and approach . Wonderful vocal. Tight structure

Great vocal performance. Excellent musical performances, recording and arrangement. Nice melodic distinction between verse and chorus. Good song structure.

Great recording, voice, and instrumentation. I like the hook a lot. This is just a great song! Nicely done!

WOWWWWW!!!! KILLER TUNE OUTSTANDING vocals!this ones a hit!!

This is a fun song. A happy sound. Nice arrangement with the fiddle adding to the joyous sound. The lead vocal is strong, selling the sentiment of the song effectively. I like the middle verse, too. It's a universal sentiment - encouraging a friend to take a chance in life.
