Sophie Ellis-Bextor – Crying at the Discotheque Lyrics

Crying at the Discotheque By Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Downtown’s been caught by the hysteria
The people scream and shout
A generation’s on the move
When disco spreads like a bacteria
The lonely days are out
Welcome the passion of the groove

The golden years
The silver tears
You wore a tie like Richard Gere
I wanna get down
You spin me around
I stand on the borderline
Crying at the discotheque
Crying at the discotheque

I saw you crying
I saw you crying at the discoteque
I saw you crying
I saw you crying at the discoteque

Tonight’s the night at danceteria
The joining of the tribe
The speakers pumping clear and loud
The way you move is our criteria
The DJ takes you high
And tears of joy baptize the crowd

The golden years
The silver tears
You wore a tie like Richard Gere
I wanna get down
You spin me around
I stand on the borderline
Crying at the discotheque
Crying at the discotheque

I saw you crying
I saw you crying at the discoteque
I saw you crying
I saw you crying at the discoteque
