Tones and I – Dance Monkey

«Dance Monkey» – песня австралийской певицы Тони Уотсон, выпущенная в качестве второго сингла с её дебютного релиза The Kids Are Coming. В этом треке Тони поёт о борьбе за музыкальное исполнение, вдохновленной её опытом работы в качестве музыканта.

“Это песня о моменте, когда я расстроилась из-за того, что у людей не было терпения. Если вы замените слово «танцевать» на «петь», само собой разумеется. Я буквально превратила цитаты, которые люди говорят мне, в тексты – они все очень настоящие.”

«Танцевальная обезьяна» была написана в октябре 2018 года, а премьера состоялась в мае 2019.

Dance Monkey Текст

Куплет 1
They say, “Oh my God, I see the way you shine
Take your hands, my dear, and place them both in mine”
You know you stopped me dead while I was passing by
And now I beg to see you dance just one more time

Ooh, I see you, see you, see you every time
And oh my, I, I like your style
You, you make me, make me, make me wanna cry
And now I beg to see you dance just one more time

Припев
So they say
Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me, oh-oh-oh
I’ve never seen anybody do the things you do before
They say
Move for me, move for me, move for me, ayy-ayy-ayy
And when you’re done, I’ll make you do it all again

Куплет 2
I said, “Oh my God, I see you walking by
Take my hands, my dear, and look me in my eyes”
Just like a monkey, I’ve been dancin’ my whole life
But you just beg to see me dance just one more time

[Pre-Chorus]
Ooh, I see you, see you, see you every time
And oh my, I, I like your style
You, you make me, make me, make me wanna cry
And now I beg to see you dance just one more time

[Chorus]
So they say
Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me, oh-oh-oh
I’ve never seen anybody do the things you do before
They say
Move for me, move for me, move for me, ayy-ayy-ayy
And when you’re done, I’ll make you do it all again
They say
Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
I’ve never seen anybody do the things you do before
They say
Move for me, move for me, move for me, ayy-ayy-ayy
And when you’re done, I’ll make you do it all again

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh, ah-ah, ah-ah

Припев
They say
Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me, oh-oh-oh
I’ve never seen anybody do the things you do before
They say
Move for me, move for me, move for me, ayy-ayy-ayy
And when you’re done, I’ll make you do it all again
They say
Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
I’ve never seen anybody do the things you do before
They say
Move for me, move for me, move for me, ayy-ayy-ayy
And when you’re done, I’ll make you do it all again
All again
