lyrics

We're a cross section of British society, some of us are high, some have got sobriety,
some of us are criminals, all of us are fools,
the amphibians are rolling to the breeding pools.

When a boy dances, he's a pretender, he'll try to defend her, try to ascend her.
When a girl dances, she's a Venus Vesuvius, she'll try to romance it,
she's on fire, she's a cat, she's an acrobat.

We are faster than the masters of the acts of happiness,
My eyes surprised she's a salamanderlicious,
Sliding 'cross the room like cold, thin ice,
but hotter than a heatwave and twice as nice.

When a boy dances, he's a pretender, he'll try to defend her, try to ascend her.
When a girl dances, she's a Venus Vesuvius, she'll try to romance it,
she's on fire, she's a cat, she's an acrobat.

When a boy dances, he's a pretender, he'll try to defend her, try to ascend her.
When a girl dances, she's a Venus Vesuvius, she'll try to romance it,
she's on fire, she's a cat, she's an acrobat.
When a boy dances, he's a pretender, he'll try to defend her, try to ascend her.
When a girl dances, she's a Venus Vesuvius, she'll try to romance it,
she's on fire, she's a cat, she's an acrobat.

But he, he's a pretender, he'll try to defend her, try to ascend her...
