Ab
We can dance if we want to
       Gb                  Db
We can leave your friends behind
           Gb
Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
             Ab             Eb
Well they're no friends of mine
     Ab
I say, we can go where we want to
              Gb               Db
a place where they will never find
           Gb    
And we can act like we come from out of this world
          Ab            Eb
Leave the real one far behind
           Db          Gb   B  E -2x-        
And we can dance  and sing


Ab
We can go when we want to
             Gb               Db
The night is young and so am I
           Gb
And we can dress real neat from our hats to our feet
       Ab                          Eb
And surprise 'em with the victory cry
     Ab
Say, we can act if want to
      Gb            Db
If we don't nobody will
            Gb
And you can act real rude and totally removed
          Ab               Eb
And I can act like an imbecile

Chorus:
       Db             Gb
I say, we can dance, we can dance
B                       E
Everything's out of control
Db             Gb
We can dance, we can dance
B                           E
We're doing it from pole to pole's
Db             Gb
We can dance, we can dance
B                      E
Everybody look at your hands
Db             Gb
We can dance, we can dance
B                    E       
Everybody takin' the cha-Gb-Gb-ance
Ab Eb                   Bb F
    It's safe to dance,    Oh well it's safe to dance,
 Eb                     Bb F
    Yes it's safe to dance


Ab 
We can dance if we want to
          Gb                 Db
We've got all your life and mine
    Gb                   
As long as we abuse it, never gonna lose it
Ab                      Eb
Everything'll work out right
     Ab 
I say, we can dance if we want to
       Gb                    Db
We can leave your friends behind
            Gb
'Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
             Ab             Eb
Well they're no friends of mine

Chorus:
       Db             Gb
I say, we can dance, we can dance
B                       E
Everything's out of control
Db             Gb
We can dance, we can dance
B                           E
We're doing it from pole to pole's
Db             Gb
We can dance, we can dance
B                      E
Everybody look at your hands
Db             Gb
We can dance, we can dance
B                    E       
Everybody takin' the cha-Gb-Gb-ance
Ab Eb                   Bb F
    It's safe to dance,    Oh well it's safe to dance,
 Eb                     Bb F
    Yes it's safe to dance

Outro:
Ab Eb                       Bb F
    Well it's safe to dance     Well it's safe to dance
    Yes it's safe to dance      Well it's safe to dance
    Well it's safe to dance     It's a Safety Dance
    Well it's a Safety Dance    Oh it's a Safety Dance
    Oh it's a Safety Dance      Well it's a Safety Dance

I’d like to play the Sleeping At Last version of this song, any playing suggestions? I’m quite a beginner; I’ve only learned about 3 songs, so any advice is highly appreciated :) Thank you
