WHEN YOU DANCE

Live 23 Oct 1971 version


Oh, when you dance, ah come on mama hold me tight
With romance, ah kiss me baby in the night
When you move, don't you know I love you so
It's a groove, when they turn the lights down low

Well come on mama, don't you go
There's no need to stand back
Bring your ??? me
Baby you know that's where I'm at

Oh when you smile, ah you will drive me wild
???, won't you be my partner child
When you love, ??? round and round
??? I want you for my only love

Come on mama, don't you go
There's no need to stand back
Bring your ??? me
Baby you know that's where I'm at

[9-minute instrumental]

Yeah when you dance, come on mama hold me tight
Make romance, ah kiss me baby in the night
When you move, well don't you know I love you so
It's a groove, I don't know if ??? let you go

Come on mama, don't you go
There's no need to stand back
Come on baby ??? me
Come on mama won't you come over

An excellent quality soundboard recording of The Bruce Springsteen Band set from this show is in the possession of a private collector. It consists of 12 songs, clocks at about 127 minutes, and is certainly the complete set. Ten songs from the recording, including WHEN YOU DANCE, have been circulating among collectors since the early eighties, but in inferior quality and incorrectly dated. The remaining two songs remain in the private collector's hands.
