Leo Sayer - Long tall glasses
Tekst en muziek: Leo Sayer en David Courtney
(1974)






I was travellin’ down the road
Feelin’ hungry and cold
I saw a sign sayin’: ‘Food
And drinks for everyone’
So, naturally I thought
I would take me a look inside
I saw so much food
There was water comin’ from my eye



Yeah, there was ham and there was turkey
And there was caviar
And long tall glasses
With wine up to yar
And then somebody grabbed me
Threw me out of my chair
Said: “Before you can eat
You gotta dance like Fred Astaire”



You know I can’t dance, you know I can’t dance
You know I can’t dance, you know I can’t dance
I can’t dance



I am a man of the road
A hobo by name
I don’t seek entertainment
Just poultry and game
But if it’s all the same to you
Then yes, I will try my hand
If you were as hungry as me
Then I’m sure you would understand



Hmmm
Now wait a minute



Of course I can dance, of course I can dance
I’m sure I can dance, I’m sure I can dance
I can dance



I can dance
I really hit the floor
Ah, feels good
Look at me dancin’



I did a two-step, quick-step
And a bossa nova
A little Victor Silvester
And a Rudy Valentino
You should have seen me movin’
Right across the floor
Hand me down my tuxedo
Next week I’m comin’ back for more



I can dance, oh yes, I can dance
Look at me dancin’ the floor, movin’
I feel good, I can dance
I can dance, I can dance, I can dance
I can dance, I can dance
