DANCE WITH LIGHTNING
© Chapman Severson

Dixie was dancing up a storm
when I walked into the bar
her hair as red as sunset, her eyes were like live wires
Well I wanted her I wanted her I asked her for a dance
she looked me over, tossed her head, and said, Not a chance

She was lightning -- she was wildfire in the night - Wildfire!
She was lightning - like fireworks hot and bright
She shook her hips, blew me a kiss,
said Boy, you've got to learn
If you try to dance with lightning, baby, you'll get burned

Well I totally lost it, didn't care if I got hurt
Just stood there praying she'd want me for dessert
Oh that short red leather skirt, red heels a mile high
She took a step, leaned far back and that skirt rode up her thigh

She was lightning -- she was wildfire in the night - Wildfire!
She was lightning -- like fireworks hot and bright
She shook her hips, blew me a kiss,
said Boy, you've got to learn
If you try to dance with lightning, baby, you'll get burned

Dixie leaned back way too far, her heel caught on a wire
she fell into the drum set, started up a fire
The neon signs exploded, the bottles popped their tops
She sat hard on the sawdust floor, someone called the cops

She was lightning -- she was wildfire in the night -- Wildfire
She was lightning - like fireworks hot and bright
she shook her head, blew me a kiss --
said, Boy, you Live and Learn
If you try to BE the lightning, baby, you'll get burned

She was lightning - She was lightning --
