My baby called me on the telephone
Said let's go dancin' when the moon is high
Put on your spandex and your shoulderpads
A little glitter and we'll really fly.

I said no
She said yes
She said you'd better move out on the floor
I said no
She said yes
We gonna dance til our feet get sore
I said I'm way too old for this stuff
She said you dance or I'm gonna get rough
I said no
She said yes
You better party like it's nineteen seventy nine.

We took a taxi to the local dive
Paid twenty dollars just to get inside
The band on stage was loopin' synthesiser noise
Nobody dancin' cause it sounded so jive.

(Break)
I said I'm way too old for this stuff
She said you dance or I'm gonna get rough
I said no
She said yes
You better party like it's nineteen seventy nine.

We found a club with a DJ man
My baby asked him for The Jackson Five
She want KC and The Sunshine Band
Boney M, Sister Sledge and Bee Gee's Stayin' Alive.

I said no
She said yes
She said you'd better move out on the floor
I said no
She said yes
We gonna dance til our feet get sore
I said I'm way too old for this stuff
She said you dance or I'm gonna get rough
I said no
She said yes
You better party like it's nineteen seventy nine. (Break)
