Hello!

I haven't seen a lyric video made for Frank Turner's "Four Simple Words" so I made this one.

Lyrics:

Because we're all so very 21st century
You're probably listening to me on some kind of portable stereo
Maybe you're sitting on the back of the bus
Or it's running up your sleeve and you're across from your boss
Or you're sitting in your bedroom on your own with the lights down low (oh so low)
I'd like to teach you four simple words so the next time you come to a show, you could sing those words back at me, like they're the only words that you know

I want to dance
I want to dance
I want lust and love and a smattering of romance
But I'm no good at dancing
And yet I have to do something
Tonight I'm gonna play it straight
I'm gonna take my chance
I want to dance

Hi ho, hi ho, hi ho
We're here heading out to the punk rock show
Colleagues and friends condescend with a smile yeah
But this is my culture man this is my home
The dark huddled masses gather round the gate yeah
The doors are at 7 and the show starts at 8
A few precious hours in a space of our own
And when the band comes on, the only thing I really know

I want to dance
I want to dance
I want lust and love and a smattering of romance
But I'm no good at dancing
And yet I have to do something
Tonight I'm gonna play it straight
I'm gonna take my chance
I want to dance

Yeah, is anybody else sick of the music that's churned out by lacklustre scenesters from Shoreditch
Yeah, it's all sex, drugs and sins, like they're extras from Skins
But it's ok 'cause they don't really mean it
I want bands who have to work for their keep
Drove a thousand miles and play the show with no sleep
Sleeping on the floor at a stranger's place
Hungry just to do it all again the next day

I wanna dance
I wanna dance
I want lust and love and a smattering of romance
But I'm no good at dancing
Yet I have to do something
Tonight I'm gonna play it straight I'm gonna take my chance
I wanna dance

So put your hands on your hips
And bring your knees in tight
Yeah we do this shit together man
No fists, no fights (no fists, no fights)

We're not trying to shape the world
So people think like us
We just want our own space to dance man
No favours, no fuss

Yeah, on blood, sweat and vinyl we have built ourselves a house
If the roof is on fire, then we're gonna put it out
Forget about your bitching and remember that you're blessed
Punk is for the kids who never fit in with the rest (alright)

Somebody told me that music with guitars
Was going out of fashion and I had to laugh
This shit wasn't fashionable when I fell in love
If the hipsters move on why should I give a fuck?

I wanna dance
I wanna dance
I want me some lust, some love and a smattering of that old-time romance
But I'm no good at dancing
And yet I have to do something
Tonight I'm gonna play it straight I'm gonna take my chance
Yeah I wanna dance
I wanna dance
I want you and me both to join hands down at the front
So the next time I see you
Remember these words so
We'll sing like the barricades are down
and we'll dance like no one's around
Singing four simple words
