about

Oh we've all done this dance.

lyrics

The internet is teeming with perplexing, senseless folly Dm Dm C C
Items on my monitor that make me look askance A Bb Dm Dm
So when the surreality would be too much for Dali Dm Dm C A
I regain my composure with this simple little dance A A DmA Dm

The whisky tango foxtrot Dm
When logic isn't present C
The whisky tango foxtrot A
When life makes your mind bend Dm
The whisky tango foxtrot Dm
When your brain can't stand the torment C
The whisky tango foxtrot A
When you just can't comprehend DmA Dm

Let's do the whisky tango foxtrot! A Dm
I'll teach you the steps!
Throw your hands up in the air! Bb
Shake your head in disbelief Dm
Close your browser in despair A
And breathe a sigh of sweet relief Dm A DmA Dm
Everyone!
Throw your hands up in the air! Bb
Shake your head in disbelief Dm
Close your browser in despair A
And breathe a sigh of sweet relief Dm A DmA Dm

Now the tango and the foxtrot are completely difference dances Dm Dm C C
You may wonder how they could or even if they should combine A Bb Dm Dm
Well this is where the whisky that we mentioned comes in handy Dm Dm C A
Once you've drunk enough of it, you'll find that you don't mind A A DmA Dm

The whisky tango foxtrot Dm
When logic isn't present C
The whisky tango foxtrot A
When life makes your mind bend Dm
The whisky tango foxtrot Dm
When your brain can't stand the torment C
The whisky tango foxtrot A
When you just can't comprehend DmA Dm

Let's do the whisky tango foxtrot! A Dm
Throw your hands up in the air! Bb
Shake your head in disbelief Dm
Close your browser in despair A
And breathe a sigh of sweet relief Dm A DmA Dm
Throw your hands up in the air! Bb
Shake your head in disbelief Dm
Close your browser in despair A
And breathe a sigh of sweet relief Dm A DmA Dm

The whisky tango foxtrot Dm
When logic isn't present C
The whisky tango foxtrot A
When life makes your mind bend Dm
The whisky tango foxtrot Dm
When your brain can't stand the torment C
The whisky tango foxtrot A
When you just can't comprehend DmA Dm
