lyrics:  

(Nat:)
I'm just a passenger, on this freight train
on a straightaway with a good head of steam
My sweet companion stepped out of the fast lane
to take the countryside as these rails ride

(chorus:)
I had my chance, I took my choice
But she was the one that was leadin' the way
She led the dance, she raised her voice
I just followed her swing and sway
I just followed along with the swing and sway
Now I'm spinnin' spinnin' spinnin' all over this floor
I'm throwin' up my hands, I'm cryin' out for more
(And I yell to the band, play just a little more)
I said, ooooo oooooo ooooo

(Erik:)
I'm a piece of driftwood out on the open sea
Where the wind and the waves wanna have their way
Oh but there's a warm breeze flowin' over me
It's blowin me toward the right shore

(chorus)

(Erik:)
Now through pirouettes and double steps I'm lettin' myself go
I don't know what's in front of me, Lord I don't want to know
I might spin too far and in the end have nothin' left to show
But a pair of worn out dancin' shoes, I guess I just say
ooooo oooooo ooooo (x3)

(Nat, repeating first verse)

(chorus)
