Dirty Song Lyrics:

"I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor"
The Dirty Lyrics:
I bet that you look good on the dance floor
Why They're Dirty:
People often say that someone who is a good dancer (looks good on the dance floor) is a good f**k. So here we have some one saying "I BET that you look good on the dance floor,” Doesn't really take a genius to work out what he is actually saying here.
