Dancing Through Life Lyrics

    The trouble with school is
    they always try to teach the wrong lesson.
    Believe me, I've been kicked out
    of enough of them to know.
    They want you to be less callow,
    less shallow,
    but I say, "Why invite stress in?
    Stop studying strife
    and learn to live 'the unexamined life'

    Dancing through life,
    skimming the surface,
    gliding where turf is smooth.
    Life's more painless
    for the brainless.
    Why think too hard
    when it's so soothing
    Dancing through life?
    No need to tough it
    when you can slough it off as I do.
    Nothing matters,
    but knowing nothing matters.
    It's just life
    so keep dancing through

    Dancing through life,
    swaying and sweeping,
    and always keeping cool.
    Life is fraughtless
    when you're thoughtless.
    Those who don't try
    never look foolish
    Dancing through life
    Mindless and careless,
    Make sure you're where less
    trouble is rife
    Woes are fleeting,
    blows are glancing
    when you're dancing
    through life!

    Let's go down to the Ozdust Ballroom.
    We'll meet there later tonight.
    We can dance till it's light.
    Find the prettiest girl
    Give 'er a whirl
    right down to the Ozdust Ballroom
    Come on, follow me,
    you'll be happy to be there

    Dancing through life,
    down at the Ozdust,
    if only because dust
    is what we come to
    Nothing matters
    but knowing nothing matters,
    It's just life
    so keep dancing through.
