Lyrics

[Verse 1: Jungkook, RM]
It's the thought of being young
When your heart's just like a drum
Beating louder with no way to guard it

When it all seems like it's wrong
Just sing along to Elton John
And to that feeling, we're just getting started


[Pre-Chorus: Jimin, Jin]
When the nights get colder
And the rhythms got you falling behind

Just dream about that moment
When you look yourself right in the eye, eye, eye
Then you say


[Chorus: Jungkook, V]
I wanna dance
The music's got me going
Ain't nothing that can stop how we move, yeah

Let's break our plans
And live just like we're golden
And roll in like we're dancing fools


[Post-Chorus: Jimin, RM, Jin]
We don't need to worry
'Cause when we fall, we know how to land

Don't need to talk the talk, just walk the walk tonight

'Cause we don't need permission to dance


[Verse 2: J-Hope, Suga, Jungkook]
There's always something that's standing in the way
But if you don't let it faze ya
You'll know just how to break

Just keep the right vibe, yeah
'Cause there's no looking back
There ain't no one to prove
We don't got this on lock (Yeah)


[Pre-Chorus: V, Jungkook, Jimin]
The wait is over
The time is now so let's do it right, mm (Yeah)

Yeah we'll keep going
And stay up until we see the sunri-i-ise (Yeah)
And we'll say


[Chorus: V, Jin]
I wanna dance
The music's got me going
Ain't nothing that can stop how we move, yeah

Let's break our plans
And live just like we're golden
And roll in like we're dancing fools


[Post-Chorus: Jungkook, J-Hope, Jimin]
We don't need to worry
'Cause when we fall, we know how to land

Don't need to talk the talk, just walk the walk tonight

'Cause we don't need permission to dance


[Bridge: Jin, Jungkook]
Da-na-na-na-na-na-na
Da-na-na-na-na-na-na
Da-na-na-na-na-na-na

No, we don't need permission to dance

Da-na-na-na-na-na-na (Hey)
Da-na-na-na-na-na-na
Da-na-na-na-na-na-na


[Pre-Chorus: Jimin, V]
Well, let me show ya
That we can keep the fire alive, mm

'Cause it's not over
Till it's over, say it one more time
Say


[Chorus: Jungkook, Jimin]
I wanna dance
The music's got me going (Music's got me going)
Ain't nothing that can stop how we move, yeah (Hey, yeah)

Let's break our plans
And live just like we're golden (Ooh)
And roll in like we're dancing fools (Like we're dancing fools)


[Post-Chorus: Jin, Suga, V, Jungkook]
We don't need to worry
'Cause when we fall, we know how to land (We know how to land)

Don't need to talk the talk, just walk the walk tonight (Ooh)

'Cause we don't need permission to dance
