See the girl with cymbals on her fingers 
Entering through the door 
Ruby glistening from her navel 
Shimmering round the floor

Bells on feet go ting-a-ling-a-linging 
Going through my head 
Sweat is falling just-a like-a tear drop 
Running from her hair

Now she dancing, going through the movements 
Swaying to and fro 
Body moving, bringing back a memory 
Thoughts of long ago

Blood is rushing, temperature is rising 
Sweating from my brow 
Like a snake, her body fascinates me 
I can't look away now

Stop, stop, stop all the dancing 
Give me time to breathe 
Stop, stop, stop all the dancing 
Or I'll have to leave

Now she's moving all around the tables 
Luring all in sight 
But I know that she cannot see me 
Hidden by the light

Closer, closer she is getting nearer 
Soon she'll be in reach 
As I enter into a spotlight 
She stands lost for speech

Now I hold her, people are staring 
Don't know what to think 
And we struggle, knocking over tables 
Spilling all the drinks

Can't they understand that I want her 
Happens every week 
Heavy hand upon my collar 
Throws me in the street
