This song is by The Walkin Talkin Toxins and appears on the album Apocalypse-Au-Go-Go (2005).

This song is a cover of "Mystery Dance" by Elvis Costello.
Romeo was restless, he was ready to kill
He jumped out a window 'cause he couldn't sit still
Juliet was waiting with a safety net
Saying, "Don't bury me 'cause I'm not dead yet"

Why don't you tell me 'bout the mystery dance?
I wanna know about the mystery dance
Why don't you show me 'cause I've tried and I've tried and I'm still mystified
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied

Well, I remember when the lights went out
I was tryin' to make it look like it was never in doubt
I thought that she knew and she thought that I knew
So both of us were willing but we didn't know how to do it

Why don't you tell me 'bout the mystery dance?
I wanna know about the mystery dance
Why don't you show me 'cause I've tried and I've tried and I'm still mystified
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied

I was down in the covers in the middle of the night
Could not discover my left foot from my right
What's the use in pictures in girly magazines
What's the use of looking when you don't know what they mean?

Why don't you tell me 'bout the mystery dance?
I wanna know about the mystery dance
Why don't you show me 'cause I've tried and I've tried and I'm still mystified
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
I can't do it anymore
