Sophie Ellis-Bextor - Murder On The Dancefloor Lyrics




(Murder)
It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not kill the groove
Dj, gonna burn this goddamn house right down

Oh, I know I know I know I know I know I know
About your kind
And so and so and so and so and so and so
I'll have to play

If you think you're getting away
I will prove you wrong
I'll take you all the way
Boy, just come along
Hear me when I say
Hey

It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not kill the groove
Hey, hey
It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not steal the moves
Dj, gonna burn this goddamn house right down

Oh I know I know I know I know I know I know
There may be others
And so and so and so and so and so and so
You'll just have to pray

If you think you're getting away
I will prove you wrong
I'll take you all the way
Stay another song
I'll blow you all away
Hey

It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not kill the groove
Hey, hey
It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not steal the moves
DJ, gonna turn this house around somehow
Murder on the dancefloor
But you better not kill the groove
Hey, hey
It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not steal the moves
Dj, gonna burn this goddamn house right down

Don't think you'll get away
I will prove you wrong
I'll take you all away
Boy just come along
Here me when I say
Hey

It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not kill the groove
It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not steal the moves
DJ, gonna burn this goddamn house right down

It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not kill the groove
Hey, hey
It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not steal the moves
DJ, gonna burn this goddamn house right down

It's murder on the dancefloor
(On the dancefloor)
But you better not kill the groove
Hey, hey
It's murder on the dancefloor
(On the dancefloor)
But you better not steal the moves
DJ, gonna burn this goddamn house right down

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know...
