Its fun dancing with peoplePeople you don’t know
You’re not talking to them
You’re getting to know them better
 
Even if you wouldn’t get along
You’re friends for that dance
Even if you wouldn’t get along
You still have the chance
 
I just love dancing
At the contradance
Whether with friends
Or without
 
I didn’t have a fun skirt
A twirly skirt to wear
So my friend brought a pile
A pile of skirts in the car
 
We sat in the backseat
The backseat all joking
That we would change in the middle
Change in the middle of the dance
 
I just love dancing
At the contradance…
 
I chose this blue skirt
So I could spin a lot
And I wore shoes
But I took them off
 
My feet got so sore
So sore and dirty
Like I’d been barefoot at a festival all day
 
I just love dancing
At the contradance…
