You Should Be Dancing Lyrics

You Should Be Dancing Lyrics

My baby moves at midnight
Goes right on 'til the dawn
My woman, take me higher
My woman, keep me warm

What you doin' on your back? Hey
What you doin' on your back? Hey
You should be dancing, yeah

    I think it's "whatcha doing here tonight?" Which was a pick up line in the clubs back then by the guys. Love this song! I've read other interpretations but don't care to share those. 2 funny

    Laying on your back is a metaphor for doing nothing. The song is asking people why do nothing when you could be enjoying yourself dancing.

    It could possibly be about man that has a wife and she is always working, so the man tells her to basically dance and let all the work of the day fade away.

    Great Song! A classic. These lyrics lead me to believe the song is about a Man possibly singing about a Prostitute. Since he mentions she works from at night until dawn. Then he asks on the Chorus...

    What you doing on your back? You should be dancing
