dancing with a stranger lyrics – cyndi lauper

holding on to the rhythm
i’m standing in my leather and lace
people move to the left
and move to the right
and the whole place starts to shake

without a net on a real high wire
i’m stepping out with my heels on fire

i started dancing with a stranger
moving to the break of day
dancing with a stranger, oh
and i just got swept away, yeah

letting go my inhibitions
is harder to do than say
but i surrender to the beat
i start shuffling my feet
when i hear that music play, yeah

i trip the light fantastic
i touch the sky and it feels like magic

i started dancing with a stranger
moving to the break of day
dancing with a stranger, oh
and i just got swept away, yeah

give me a dance, dance

dancing with a stranger
and it takes my breath away, yeah

i ain’t looking for mr.right
it doesn’t matter to me
there’s something in the air, electric i like
igniting endlessly

i started to dance

without a net on a real high wire
i’m stepping out with my heels on fire

i started dancing, yeah, dancing with a stranger
moving to the break of day, yeah
dancing with a stranger, oh
and i just got swept away

and i started dancing with a stranger
moving to the break of day
i started dancing with a stranger, oh
and it takes my breath away, yeah

movin’, movin’, yeah, yeah, yeah
dancin’
