{In 2437, humans have mostly forgotten how to dance. It was banned by the Sol-System's government around the turn of the 23rd century. It wasn't a ban to oppress people or anything. It was just that nobody liked to dance anyway [especially men]. A few people still dance in secret, but only when the blinds are down and the smart phones are turned off so that nobody can see them.}


There was a time not too long ago
when the landlord was gonna shut off the power,
kick us out in the snow
But before we left there was something you wanted to do
you grabbed my hand and dragged me into the kitchen
and you sang me this tune

Dancing in the kitchen, slowly moving our feet
Dancing in the kitchen, just my darling and me
Some days are sour, some days so sweet
But the day that I treasure the most, you were dancing in the kitchen with me

So we left that place with not a dollar to our names
the good times left and the hard times came
but no matter how great the struggles and strife
we'd always look back and laugh at that one special time

Well things got worse and better and worse and worse and better again
And now sometimes we go to a bar and we dance with our friends
but no matter the band or the drinks so fine
nothing compares to that one special time
