The Lyrics

I really AM a really good dancer...really...
Ooooo

As I dance
Take a dive
That fall could have cost my life
Ooooo
See me fall
You're laughing
Quit it, 'cause glancing's mean

I'm in danger when lights are low
Find a hidden crack in the flo'
Trip in time to the music
Arms begin to swing
Too late--I'm now falling

Please don't bother to ask me why
It's just in my nature to fly
When they play the rock music
Everything is fine
But then I hit the deck
To see, folks strain their necks!

Stop it, 'cause glancing's mean
Hold your tongue
And please quit pointing
Glancing's mean
Feel the heat in my cheeks rising
Oh yeah

As I dance
Take a dive
That fall could have cost my life
Ooooo
See me fall
You're laughing
Quit it, 'cause glancing's mean

I'm your partner but then I'm gone
Trying not to get trampled on
Didn't move to another
I'm down by your shoe
Please don't go--can't you wait?
I'm still a real fun date

Don't glare, 'cause glancing's mean
Hold your tongue
And please stop pointing
Glancing's mean
Feel the heat in my cheeks rising
Oh yeah

As I dance
Take a dive
That fall could have cost my life
Ooooo
See me fall
You're laughing
Quit it, 'cause glancing's mean

Move on, 'cause glancing's mean

Great job, Arwen! Now I want to see you parody Culture Club's "I'll Tumble 4 Ya".

Ah ha! It's a bit of a given, isn't it? I'm really surprised I've never thought of doing that one before! We'll see if I can cook something up...=) Thanks, Johnny!

Oh honey, if I ever saw you fall down on the dance floor, I'd really try to stop laughing long enough to help you up. I swear, I'd really try...
Arwen - June 28, 2004 - Report this comment
You know, Ashkicksass...something tells me that you woudn't. Something tells me that you would sit there and laugh and laugh and laugh...until all of your mascara had run down your face, and then your date would leave you, too...and there we would be...the two sexiest girls on the dance floor. One, actually laying on the dance floor...and the other doing her best Alice Cooper impersonation...

I just know that is what I would do if I saw you fall...
Cookie-man - June 28, 2004 - Report this comment
Have to admit I am TOTALLY guilty of staring at people when they fall down. It takes everything in my power not to laugh. I bust out laughing when I fall down so I can't help but laugh heartily when others do. All though I am not sure if I would laugh when you fell down cuz' you might kick my @$$! ;)
2nz - June 28, 2004 - Report this comment
Sorry, DKTOS, mostly because I can't stand Abba. But every time someone won't stop staring at me, I just pretend they want to have a staring contest and stare back. Usually I win, but there was this one nine-month-old who was just unbeatable.
The Thought Police - June 28, 2004 - Report this comment
I give it fives,but to be honest ,I did'nt read much past the line that goes "Feel the heat in my cheeks rising..." ; )
Arwen - June 28, 2004 - Report this comment
COOKIE-MAN...I'm sure you're very tough and all, but you're right in the fact that I would totally kick your ass if you laughed at me...or at least I could. I probably wouldn't. Because, yeah...I'd be laughing, too. I remember one time...I was talking to one of my friends at work, and I was explaining to her how I had ALMOST fallen down outside the bathroom. And I went to reinact the "near fall," and of course I totally fell down in the hall. Of course I was wearing a skirt at the time. And of course the entire Marketing department wandered around the way to see what the commotion was. My friend and I laughed for about 20 minutes...and her makeup was totally running...so she did totally look like Alice Cooper. It was a great day. A great great day. 2NZ...see, that's where you and I differ. If I haven't fallen...if I'm just sitting there, and someone is staring at me, I just pretend (or rather, I just KNOW) that they are totally infatuated with me...and to tell them to stop staring would just be rude...; )...And finally...TTP...thanks so much! Heehee. Now I'm blushing again....=)

the random button took me to this. It must have known it was me.

Wow...so glad to be recognized by the random button. One day...when I was SUPER bored at work I randomed it up for a LONG time...and never got one of my own...so...hooray!

loved that Arwen. Best of all I liked "I'm your partner but then I'm gone - Trying not to get trampled on - Didn't move to another - I'm down by your shoe" - can't understand why only 2 votes (did they get lost or something?)
Arwen - October 16, 2004 - Report this comment
Yes, Stuart...the votes for about the previous year were lost near the end of July. A day that will live in infamy. It caused serious drama around the site...which, in my mind, was totally insane. I can't remember...but I think I lost seven hundred or something votes. There are people who lost over a thousand...so...maybe that's why I was less concerned than others. Still...votes don't really please me as much as people's fabulous comments...and as you can see...those are still there.

Thanks for stopping by, Stuart!

(ABC-G 05) This is pretty funny Arwen. I may have this album so I can hear TOS again but if I vote this will it wipe your votes?

(ABC05) You have tripped the light fantastic!
Arwen - June 07, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks to the ABC voters...=)

Red Ant, votes don't concern me as much as they concern some...so I wouldn't care if they were wiped...but you'd be fine to vote on this one...it has already been reset...=)

(G) Funny stuff. Having read some of your stuff on clumsiness, before, a couple of quotes (no idea who to credit for either) spring to miy mind: It's only funny until someone gets hurt... then it's hilarious!
and
It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye. Then it's just a game called "Find The Eye"
Red Ant - June 12, 2005 - Report this comment
In retrospect, it would be pretty silly to link a parody/enter one in a contest that might get vote wiped. It wouldn't matter how good or bad you danced, it would be better than my own. 5s.

(G) Just glanced at this...555...and I mean it :-)) You didn't stumble writing this gem.

(ABC) In agreement with all of those who think this is a classic.
Phil Alexander - June 17, 2005 - Report this comment
I dunno... I think Arwen's done much better than this. Kind of fun, but not as good as some. Maybe I just expect too much ;-)
Arwen - June 17, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks to all my G-thang voters...=)

I honestly have to agree with Phil, though. While I am EXTREMELY self-absorbed and think that ALL of my stuff is totally awesome...(hehehe)...I wouldn't call this one of my best. Don't get me wrong...my "making a fool of myself" parodies all have a special place in my heart, but this was a pretty early submission...and we all know that I've just gotten better with time...; )
Ethan Mawyer - June 18, 2005 - Report this comment
ABC G - Amusing, but probably could've used a little more variety. Still infinitely better than anything I've written this month, and you probably dance better than I do too. Even if this song is based on a true story. 555

(ABC) DKTOS. I have to be honest, I don't like Abba at all. However I didn't let that ruin the song for me, I really enjoyed it.
