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


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

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


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

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

Outro:
C G                       D A
    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
