The Lyrics

When I first heard this song as a child, I misheard the lyrics as "you can dance, you can DIE, having the time of your life". I actually like my misheard version better; it sounds a little darker and a lot less bubblegum-y.
You can dance, you could die, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that sing, diggin' the dancing queen

Friday night and the lights are low
You're in the club but you don't yet know
This dance will be your last one, enjoy it while you can
And come in to look for a man
While you're trying to find that guy
There's somebody with shifty eyes
Poisoning the punch bowl, with some arsenic
You're in the mood for a kick
Everything's looking slick

You are the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing queen, feel the beat from the tambourine, oh yeah
You can dance, you will die, having the time of your life
Oh, see that girl, watch that scene, diggin' the dancing queen

You're teaser, you turn them on
Leave 'em burning, and then you're gone
'Cause you've gotten thirsty, gotta find a drink
But then you fall over dead
Poison went to your head

You were the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing queen, no more beat from the tambourine, oh no
Used to dance, now you've died, having the time of your life
Oh, see that girl, tragic scene, mourning the dancing queen
