Onto the Dance Floor 
    (Difford/Tilbrook) 
      Head on my shoulder 
      Tears on my shirtsleeve 
      What did I say wrong 
      Hurt by a gesture 
      Not by reaction  
      Is love saying so long 
      Inside my heart 
      Young young young wise people 
      Young young young loud sound  

      Onto the dance floor 
      Out of the sadness 
      Tears without tempo 
      Swim in their beauty 
      Swim in their upset 
      The bell will ring 
      For me and my girl 
      Up to the altar time standing still 
      When he says will you you say you will 

      It's the proposal 
      She thought she'd never 
      Hear on a dance floor 
      Joy finds its features 
      Upon her lipstick 
      Kissed with an answer 
      Inside my heart- 
      All up to day break 
      All up to dropsake 
      I hear a slow song 
      Close gets the love ones 
      Onto the dance floor 
      The bells are ringing 
      For me and my girl 
      Nothing can alter nothing can change 
      I'll go to pieces, pieces of eight
