Mystery Dance Lyrics

Romeo was restless, he was ready to kill
He jumped out the window 'cause he couldn't sit still
Juliet was waiting with a safety net
He said, "Don't bury me 'cause I'm not dead yet"

Why don't you tell me 'bout the mystery dance?
I wanna 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 Friday night, when the lights went out
And I was tryin' to make it look like it was never in doubt
She thought that I knew and I thought that she did
So, both of us were willing but we didn't know how to do it

Why don't you tell me 'bout the mystery dance?
I wanna 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 was underneath the covers in the middle of the night
Tryin' to discover my left foot from my right
You can see those pictures in any magazine
But what's the use of looking when you don't know what they mean?

Why don't you tell me 'bout the mystery dance?
I wanna 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

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
