SLS – Future

Jim has chosen a cool theme for today’s Song Lyric Sunday, and I felt like going with something real upbeat. I know this song was over-played to the point it became annoying, but I still remember this track being great fun on the dance floor.

The song is “Shut Up And Dance”, and the band are Walk The Moon. Although this song mentions the word “future”, it is also a trip back to the eighties, and celebrates all things dork and nerdy. But it is so much fun.

The team that wrote this track include Ryan McMahon, Benjamin Berger, Eli Brose Maiman, Kevin Coulter Ray, Nicholas William Petricca, and Sean Byron Waugaman.

"Oh don't you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me"
I said, "You're holding back"
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo
Shut up and dance with me"

We were victims of the night
The chemical, physical, kryptonite
Helpless to the bass and the fading light
Oh, we were bound to get together
Bound to get together

She took my arm
I don't know how it happened
We took the floor and she said

"Oh, don't you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me"
I said, "You're holding back"
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo
Shut up and dance with me"

A backless dress and some beat up sneaks
My discothèque, Juliet teenage dream
I felt it in my chest as she looked at me
I knew we were bound to be together
Bound to be together

She took my arm
I don't know how it happened
We took the floor and she said

"Oh, don't you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me"
I said, "You're holding back"
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo
Shut up and dance with me"

Oh, come on girl

Deep in her eyes
I think I see the future
I realize this is my last chance

She took my arm
I don't know how it happened
We took the floor and she said

"Oh, don't you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me"
I said, "You're holding back"
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo
Shut up and dance!"

"Don't you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me"
I said, "You're holding back"
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo
Shut up and dance with me"

Ooh-ooh-hoo, shut up and dance with me
Ooh-ooh-hoo, shut up and dance with me
