Thanks to everyone who has ever danced at our shows. Thanks to all the musicians who have crowded onto our stages as subs and guest stars. We also want to thank Andy LaValley, our live sound guy. Special thanks to our extended family.

Track Name: Dance Originality
1. D A N C E O R I G I N A L I T Y
Let's do it on the dance floor. Let’s do it, while we can
Let’s do it on the dance floor. Let’s do it while we dance
No need to get a room— we’re practically together
Show me your Dance Originality
Now’s the time for Dance Originality
We couldn’t get much closer— Pervasive sense of Skin
No need to get a room— let’s make Love in the Dance floor
Let’s Groove it and Shake it
Then Scrunch down to the Ground and Shout
Jump up, now Get Down and Do It all again with a Twist
Track Name: In Your Dancing Dreams
2. I N Y O U R D A N C I N G D R E A M S
Working for the weekend— I just got to move
Feel that funk a creeping— I just got to move
Shake it down, I know I’m lookin’ good now
I just got to move
Step into the place— I just got to move
Bodies interlace— I just got to move
With the Rhythm and the Bass, I’m feelin’ good now
I just got to move
It’s midnight and I’m still dancin’
Bar time and I’m still dancin’
Taxi ride and I’m still dancin’
Maybe I'll be dancing in your dreams…
Mind's in outer space—I just got to move
Bodies interlace— I just got to move
With the Rhythm and the Bass, I’m feelin’ good now
I just got to move
I’ll be dancin’ in my dreams tonight
I’ll be groovin’ to that funky disco beat—
Tossin’ and turnin’ in my sleep tonight
I’ll be dreaming of the night
I felt the music lifting me higher
Track Name: I Can Feel It
3. I C A N F E E L I T
This is real and I can feel it
I am alive and I have arrived and I can feel it
When I'm lost in illusion, I don't know what is real
And I'm lost in confusion, I don't know what I feel
Now I'm breathin' it, breathin' it, breathin' it
I am home here— I was grown here
Flesh and bone here— I am known here
Now I'm breathin' it— no need to believe in it
I am alive, can you feel it? We’re alive, can you feel it?
Track Name: Soul Shiny Day
. S O U L S H I N Y D A Y
When I wake in the morning and my Soul is a flowin’
Lookin to a Sun blue Sky and I feel as High.
And my feet are on Fire— my Spirits rise-in higher and
higher with the brand new Day— chase my troubles away
Passin lovers on the sidewalk as they walkin hand in hand
Throw the frisbee to a buddy in the golden sand
Laughin way too righteous for the neighbors on the bay
But we just don’t care ‘cause we love dat
Sweet Soul Shiny Day
You might think it’s nothing— just another boring day
You might think that Love is never ever gonna
Come your way
And all this time you sitting with a big ole
Frown on your face, well
Just get right up boy— just get your butt out of this Place
Love… and my Soul is shining
Light is pouring thru the meadow
Diamond dew drops on the grass
Chabas jumping in the puddle
as they splash and fall right on their Ass
Music swaying through our bodies
as our band begins to Play
And we love this Song and we love this sweet Soul Shiny Day
Track Name: Baku
5. B A K U
You walked out one day saying you’d strike it rich in the oil fields.
I didn’t take it seriously—I’d heard this often before.
But the next day you didn’t show up for the family photograph—
this final insult was the last straw I couldn’t ignore.
I purchased an atlas to check where they kept the petroleum.
I filled up a backpack with clothing and comfortable shoes.
My search for you took me from Yemen to Outer Mongolium,
but finally I picked up your unpleasant scent in Baku.
Baku— a place of redemption
where oil flows and the greedy seek their fortune—
marred by Stalinization. I found you in Baku.
Baku was a hangout for high rollers and shady millionaires—
the Azerbaijan capitol on the Caspian Sea.
I scoured its old city streets wondering if I'd find you there
then I spied you in a chaikana with your cup of tea.
You said you were happy I’d found you—
apologies leapt from your mouth:
“Let’s celebrate in my villa this evening—
we’ll dine on champagne and smoked trout.”
Your sweet demeanor had started to turn me—
my thirst for revenge did abate.
Approaching your villa that fateful evening, I feared I might capitulate.
You poured us some vodka and asked me to drink mine responsibly— by this I inferred that you had every hope I would stay.
Despite the temptation to join in erotic activity,
the poison went into your glass while you looked away.
Track Name: The Disco Haiku
6. t h e d i s c o h a i k u
penetrates your heart and soul
in your mind for good

sequined bodies glide
rollerskating fantasy
dancefloor lights aglow

timeless is the beat
neverending harmony
echoes on thin air

transcendental glam
polyester suit, no tie
sweat begins to flow

mirror ball alive
spinning and reflecting you
twinkle shining star

dancing heart is free
sensual humanity
beyond he or she

never want to leave
disco loving family
this is what we are
Track Name: I Love The Sun
7. I L O V E T H E S U N
Each day that you shine— Love so Divine,
Whole as in One
And by the way, I Love the Sun (everybody loves the...)
Ooo, celestial Fire, light up the Sky— You are the One
And by the way, I Love the Sun
Be all you can be when you're with me 'cause we are Free
And by the way, I Love the Sun
Track Name: Aurora
8. A U R O R A
When I gaze up at the winter sky, hundreds of memories flow on by sending me off to a place I no longer go. When I lift my eyes to the stars above Time disappears and you’re near, my love—thinking back to a magical night long ago. Wandering in northerly Labrador—miles of moonlit lands to explore— guided north by the Yearning that we shared. Shimmering curtains that fall from Space lighting the Beauty I see your face— shrouding in mystery all that we Behold
Shielding us from the Sun, protecting every-one,
Shimmering softly — Aurora — Dancing in the Night,
Moving with the light, scintillating Sea, flowing over Me…
Wandering in Northerly Labrador—miles of moonlit lands to explore Looking inside for the feeling I had long ago
Drifting down from Infinity, filling our Hearts with Serenity
Wondering if this is the last time we’ll Dream this Place
Have you ever seen Aurora?
Track Name: We're Getting Older
9. W E ’ R E G E T T I N G O L D E R
Life can be hard but Life can be good to you—look around
until you find something that will make you smile
Life brings you down but from the ground something will grow
Poke around until you feel another root another sprout.
So sway with me— we’re getting older
Just sway for now— we’re getting older
Life can be hard, but life can be good to you— look around
until you find someone that will make you dance
Voices stay Young when they keep Singing along
Bodies stay Young when they keep Dancing along
Dance like you’re Naked, and you wanna Shake it
Life can be hard but Life can be good to you— look around this crazy town— doesn't it just make you Smile?
Track Name: Dance Originality (Null Device Remix)
Let's do it on the dance floor. Let’s do it, while we can
Let’s do it on the dance floor. Let’s do it while we dance
No need to get a room— we’re practically together
Show me your Dance Originality
Now’s the time for Dance Originality
We couldn’t get much closer— Pervasive sense of Skin
No need to get a room— let’s make Love in the Dance floor
Let’s Groove it and Shake it
Then Scrunch down to the Ground and Shout
Jump up, now Get Down and Do It all again with a Twist
