"Lord Of The Dance"

[ from the album "Don't Stop The Night" (1989) ]

Lyrics

It's like a vision
I see the Saviour (The Lord is coming back)
A beautiful woman (The Lord is coming)
These are the last days (The last days of mankind)
People in fever (At the end of the working week)
Is the end of the world (He's coming back!)
And the Messiah is coming
With the body of a beautiful girl
And the people say .....

Dance, dance, if you're a believer
In the light and rhythm and heat
Jesus Christ is a disco diva
She has come to set you free
She told me: "Lay down your heavy burden
Get up and follow me
I will make you fishers of men
I am the Lord of the Dance", said she
"I will turn you on"

I see a beautiful woman (O Sabba Dukkha)
She's got the face of the Buddha (O Sabba Annata)
I see her coming and smiling (O Sabba Annika)
I hear her singing and saying (So speaks the Buddha)
"In man is no abiding entity (O Sabba Dukkha)
In things no abiding reality (O Sabba Annata)
Fantastic illusion is everywhere (O Sabba Annika)
Abandon every earthly care (So speaks the Buddha) and .....

Dance, dance, if you're a believer
In the light and rhythm and heat
Siddharta Gotama is a disco diva
She has come to set you free"
She told me: "Fantasy is transitory, fashion is impermanent
So let go, don't hold on
I am the Lord of the Dance", said she
"I will turn you ..... "

Dance, dance, if you're a believer
In the light and rhythm and heat
In the beautiful fever of the disco diva
She has come to set you free
Ecstasy is transitory, passion is impermanent
So let go, don't hold on .....
