- Hey, what am I doing standing here on the
corner of West 8th Street and 6th Avenue and...
- ...you're asking me?
- Nothing. Keith, what are you, what are you doing?
Oh, I think the time has come to get out, get out
Get up, get out, (get) into something new
Get up, get out (down) into something new
And it's got me moving (yeah)
Got me moving, honey
Poor man eyes a rich man, denigrates his poverty
Rich man loves a poor man, envies his simplicity
Yeah, get up, get up, get out
Into something new
Yeah, all, won't you all, won't you all, won't you all (...)
Don't stand accused
Dance Pt. 1 was one strong riff where Mick immediately took the bait, literally got up and danced to it, which was the whole idea of the track: it's a catchy riff. That was an example of a song that originated without words, just a groove with various changes, but never a chorus. We did have various alternative mixes going at the time, but I can't really tell the difference between Part I or Part II or Part III. It was just a novelty, the Pt. 1 bit.
I saw Dance as more of an instrumental, like Junior Walker's Shotgun. And Mick immediately came up with reams of paper and lyrics. I thought it should be a minimal lyric, and Mick comes up with Don Giovanni.
