Mystery Dance by Elvis Costello- Favorite Lyrics Series

Why don’t you tell me about the mystery dance?

I want to know about the mystery dance?

Why don’t you show me. Cause I’ve tried and I’ve tried and I’m still mystified.

I can’t do it anymore and I’m not satisfied.

Well I remember when the lights went out.

I was trying to make it look like it was never in doubt.

She thought that I knew and I thought that she knew. Both of us were willing… but we didn’t know how to do it.

Why don’t you tell me about the mystery dance?

Dennis Mantin
