Announcer: Once again, here’s Leo Sayer.

Leo Sayer: [ singing ]“You’ve got a cute way of talking
You got the better of me
Just snap your fingers and I’m walking
Like a dog hanging on your lead

I’m in a spin, you knowShaking on a string, you know!

You make me feel like dancing
I want to dance the night away
You make me feel like dancing
I want to dance the night away
You make feel like dancing
I feel like dancing (whoo!) dancing (whoo!) dance the night away
I feel like dancing (whoo!) dancing (whoo!) ahhhhh!

Quarter to four in the morning
I ain’t feeling tired, no no no no no
Just hold me tight and leave on the light
‘Cause I don’t want to go home

You put a spell on me
I’m right where you want me to be!

You make me feel like dancing
I want to dance the night away
You make me feel like dancing
I want to dance the night away
You make feel like dancing
I feel like dancing (whoo!) dancing (whoo!) dance the night away
I feel like dancing (whoo!) dancing (whoo!) ahhhhh!

You take me higher
I’m gonna catch on fire, ’cause

You make me feel like dancing
I want to dance the night away
You make me feel like dancing
I want to dance the night away
You make feel like dancing
I feel like dancing (whoo!) dancing (whoo!) dance the night away
I feel like dancing (whoo!) dancing (whoo!) dance the night away
I feel like dancing (whoo!) dancing (whoo!) dance the night away
I feel like dancing (whoo!) dancing (whoo!) ahhhhh!

You really slipped me a potion
I can’t get off of the floor
All this perpetual motion
You gotta give me some more
You gotta give me some more

And if you’ll let me stayWe’ll dance our lives away!

You make me feel like dancing (I wanna dance my life away)
You make me feel like dancing (I wanna dance my life away)
You make me feel like dancing (I wanna dance my life away)
I feel
You make me feel like dancing (I wanna dance my life away)
You make me feel like dancing (I wanna dance my life away)
I feel
You make me feel just like dancing (I wanna dance my life away)
I feel!”
