Ballroom Ghost (Way back in the 20’s) Lyrics

Way back in the 20’s, before pop was invented
Way back before hip-hop, rock, before reggae & soul
We young things of fashion, would dance with a passion
When “House” was a home, a “Garage” where Dad parked his car

We danced the Fandango, or maybe the Tango
So close to our partner’s cheek-to-cheek how they grope
We were the generation that really shocked the nation
We partied through the night

We were very much like you, the rebels of our time
Despicably outrageous too, the brave young Punks of our time

Come with me & I will show you how it used to be
Back when we had style …
We’ll dance the black bottom, or maybe the Charleston?
Or simply Waltz a while

Way back in the 20’s, before pop was invented
Way back before hip-hop, rock, before reggae & soul
We young things of fashion, would dance with a passion
When “House” was a home, a “Garage” where Dad parked his car

It was terribly shocking, if a girl showed her stockings
But so much more interesting than boring old tights!
Come back to the future, and see how it was then
The circle goes round and round and comes back again

We were very much like you, the rebels of our time
Despicably outrageous too, the brave young Punks of our time

Come with me, and I will show you how it used to be
Back when we had style …
You’re welcome in dreadlocks, in drag or in frilly frocks
We’ll have a “gay” old time!

Come back to the days when we had style 🙂
