The Hollies - Stop stop stop
Tekst en muziek: Graham Nash, Allan Clarke en Tony Hicks
(1966)







See the girl with cymbals on her fingers, entering through the door
Ruby glistening from her navel, shimmering around the floor
Bells on feet go ting-a-ling-a-linging, going through my head
Sweat is falling just-a like-a tear drops, running from her head



Now she’s dancing, going through the movements, swaying to and fro
Body moving, bringing back a memory, thoughts of long ago
Blood is rushing, temperature is rising, sweating from my brow
Like a snake, her body fascinates me, I can’t look away now



Stop stop stop all the dancing
Give me time to breathe
Stop stop stop all the dancing
Or I’ll have to leave



Now she’s moving all around the tables, luring all in sight
But I know that she cannot see me, hidden by the light
Closer, closer she is getting nearer, soon she’ll be in reach
As I enter into her spotlight, she stands lost for speech



Stop stop stop all the dancing
Give me time to breathe
Stop stop stop all the dancing
Or I’ll have to leave



Stop stop stop all the dancing
Give me time to breathe
Stop stop stop all the dancing
Or I’ll have to leave



Now I hold her, people are staring, don’t know what to think
And we struggle, knocking over tables, spilling all the drinks
Can’t they understand that I want her, happens every week
Heavy hand upon my collar throws me in the street



Stop stop stop all the dancing
Give me time to breathe
Stop stop stop all the dancing
Or I’ll have to leave
