When I saw you smiling
Why leave things to chance
It just takes one simple little glance
I’ll just be blasé
You will come my way
And we will have the last dance

Well I never really know, you’re gazing at my eyes
Well you keep on brushing by, are you just being shy?
And I never really know, you’re playing with your hair
And you’re playing with your tie, I wonder if you care

Bup budup budup bup, Ba dayya daa
When your feet are facing me, it’s telling me you’re free
Bup budup budup bup, Ba dayya daa
Making circles with your shoe, it means that I’m for you

All these funny games we play
All so you will come my way
It’s a jazz ballet, a cabaret, a gala ball
And we never really know if something’s really there at all

Well you’re straightening your skirt, it’s getting me to think
Are you giving me the wink, or could it be the drink?
When you brush your hand on mine, the tingles run up my spine

Badup badup budup bup, Ba dayya daa
Are you closing in on me, your hand is on my knee?
Badup badup, budup bup, Ba dayya daa
When I whisper in your ear, it’s me you wanna hear

All these funny games we play
All those little things you say
And it’s the dance of tango, light fandango, free-for-all
‘Coz we never really know if something’s really there at all
No we never really know if something’s really there at all

All your tossing and your twirling
All your grooming and your smiles
They just leave me asking why

But we’re never meant to know it
Or I’d lay my cards and show it
So we keep the playing tight, so night’ll never, ever die

All these funny games we play
All for sweeping me away
And it is when you brush me, smile at me, or say you’ll call
We can never really know if something’s really there at all
And the fun is all about not really knowing, if at all
No we never really know if something’s really there at all
