           Hot sun    Beating           Burning  wal-  around
                          down          my feet   king


C C G G          F  G G
      Hot sun        beating down
C C G G                    Bb       C
      burning my feet just walking around.

(Same thing:)

Hot sun making me sweat
\'Gators getting close, hasn\'t got me yet


Chorus: (same tune as verse)
-------
C C G G         F  G G
I can\'t dance, I can\'t talk.
C C G G                        Bb    C
The only thing about me is the way I walk.

I can\'t dance, I can\'t sing
I\'m just standing here selling everything.

Verse 2:
--------
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/g/genesis/i_cant_dance_tab.html ]
Blue jeans sitting on the beach,
her dog\'s talking to me, but she\'s out of reach.

She\'s got a body under that shirt,
but all she wants to do is rub my face in the dirt.

\'Cause, I can\'t dance, I can\'t talk.
The only thing about me is the way I walk.
No, I can\'t dance, I can\'t sing
I\'m just standing here selling.

    Bb                        F
And checking everything is in place,
          C
you never know who\'s looking on.

Verse 3:
--------

Young punk spilling beer on my shoes,
fat guy\'s talking to me trying to steal my blues.

Thick smoke, see her smiling through.
I never thought so much could happen just shooting pool.

But I can\'t dance, I can\'t talk.
The only thing about me is the way I walk.
I can\'t dance, I can\'t sing
I\'m just standing here selling

  A perfect body   with a perfect face,  uhan.

End:
----

Play chorus lots of time with loads of scat vocals...while
playing the \"intro-riff\"...

and singing:

\"I won\'t dance,  please don\'t ask me...\"
