​Dancing for Money

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album Human Soul (1989).

When I ask you for a light You don't turn the lights out
When I'm looking for a fight You don't punch my lights out
Sometimes they say Love is invincible
I wouldn't go as far as to say that
One thing I know One thing is certain honey
We're not dancing for money ooh ooh

When I ask you for a buck You don't call me deer
When I try to push my luck You don't twist my ear
Sometimes when I'm Blind drunk I see it all
But I can't do Anything about it
I fall on my face And jerk like a puppet honey
Just like dancing for money

Familiarity breeds contempt So I turn off the radio
From life's pain I'm not exempt I'm just lucky I can go
Some other place Where there's a sun up high
Right in my face For once in a lifetime
I'm not a slave, I'm not a captain honey
I'm not dancing for money

I'm not a slave, I'm not a captive
I'm not in chains Or nailed to a cross
One thing's for sure One thing is certain honey
I'm not dancing for money I'm not dancing for money
Ooh not dancing for money (4 times)
