I danced in the morning when the world was young
I danced in the moon, the stars and the sun
I came down from heaven and I danced on earth
At Bethlehem I had my birth

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the Lord of the dance said he
And I'll lead you all, whereever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance said he

I danced for the scribe and for the pharisee
They would not dance, they would not follow me
So I danced for the fishermen James and John
Came with me and the dance went on


I danced on the Sabbath an I cured the lame
The holy people said it was a shame
They whipped and they stripped and they hung me high
Left me there on the cross to die


I danced on a Friday when the world turned black
It's hard to dance with the devil in your back
They buried my body they thought I'd gone
But I am the dance and I still go on


They cut me down but I leapt up high
I am the life that will never never die
And I'll live in you if you'll live in me
I am the Lord of the dance said he
