Lyrics


Nodisco

I saw you in the picture

I saw you play the part

This ain't nodisco

There's a thousand watts in you

You take this too far

This ain't nodisco


Sometimes when I wonder if you're taking a chance

This ain't nodisco

And you know how to dance


Move me disco

Baby don't you let go

This ain't nodisco


Part one

Act one

Everyone pretend

This ain't nodisco

This is more a story

And we're reaching the end

This ain't nodisco


Always makes me happy when you're taking a chance

This ain't nodisco

And you know how to dance


Move me disco

Baby don't you let go

This ain't nodisco
