Lyrics

Went to a dance back in fif-ty four,
(I) walked up and through that o-pen door.
The gym was decked out in bunt-ing and crepe,
This could-'nt be the place I had tried to es-cape.
Bal-loons hang-ing up and signs with-out rules,
I mar-velled that this school I knew could ev-er be cool.

I moved and stood off to the side of the room
where all the boys were stand-ing look-ing glum and doomed.
Tried a lit-tle punch, found it way too sweet
Pret-zels hard as bricks, cook-ies you could-'nt eat.
Prin-ci-pal Smith be-hind the ta-ble there,
next to Suz-y's moth-er with her wa-vy hair.

Slide all night, we're goin' to glide.
Tame that wave, we're goin' to fly.
Walk that line, we're goin' to shine.
Spin this way, we're going to try.
We're goin' to lock our eyes, and stay out-side,
We're goin' to slide all night, we're goin' to glide.

There was a band try-ing hard to play that new rock n roll.
Some girls were out on the floor and they were do-ing a stroll.
A nice tight suit and a thin blue tie,
I was look-ing might-y sharp, I was look-ing might-y fine.

Like all of the boys I was scared of the girls,
I knew that to-night ev-'ry-thing was all right.

A-cross the floor I saw a girl I did-n't know,
she had an an-gel's ha-lo and a gold-en glow.
With a pink poo-dle skirt and a blond pon-y tail,
I had to take a deep breath and then I had to ex-hale.
She wore a white sweat-er and new sad-dle shoes,
and then she walked a-way and left me sing-ing the blues.

Slide all night, we're goin' to glide.
Tame that wave, we're goin' to fly.
Walk that line, we're goin' to shine.
Spin this way, we're going to try.
We're goin' to lock our eyes, and stay out-side,
We're goin' to slide all night, we're goin' to glide.

We're goin' to
glide.
We're goin' to lock our eyes, and stay out-side,
We're goin' to slide all night, we're goin' to glide.

We're goin' to glide.
