Lyrics

Artie:
S-A-F-E-T-Y
Safety dance

We can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
‘Cause your friends don’t dance
and if they don’t dance

Well, they’re no friends of mine
I say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind

And we can dance
We can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
‘Cause your friends don’t dance
and if they don’t dance

Well, they’re no friends of mine
I say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
And we can dance

We can dance, we can dance
Everything's out of control

We can dance, we can dance
We’re doing it from wall to wall

We can go when we want to
The night is young and so am I
And we can dress real neat from our hats to our feet
And surprise ‘em with the victory cry

Say, we can act if want to
If we don’t nobody will
And you can act real rude and totally removed
And I can act like an imbecile

I say, we can dance, we can dance
Everything's out of control
(Out of control)

We can dance, we can dance
We’re doing it from wall to wall
(Wall to wall)

We can dance, we can dance
Everybody look at your hands
(Look at your hands)

We can dance, we can dance
Everybody takin’ the chance
Well, it's safe to dance,
yeah it's safety dance
It's safe to dance

We can dance if we want to
We’ve got all your life and mine
As long as we abuse it, never gonna lose it
Everything’ll work out right

I say, we can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
‘Cause your friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance
Well, they’re no friends of mine

I say, we can dance, we can dance
Everything's out of control (Out of control)

We can dance, we can dance
We’re doing it from wall to wall
(Wall to wall)

We can dance, we can dance
Everybody look at your hands
(Out of control)

We can dance, we can dance
Everybody takin’ the chance

It's safe to dance, oh it's safe to dance
It's safe to dance, oh it's safe to dance
It's safe to dance, oh it's safe to dance
It's safe to dance, oh it's safe to dance
It's safe to dance, oh it's safe to dance
It's safe to dance, oh it's safe to dance

It's safe to dance!

Trivia

  • This is Artie's second time out of his wheelchair on screen. The first being in Jump.
  • The song was filmed in an actual shopping mall on its opening day.
  • Jollibee is a real-life fastfood chain from the Philippines can be seen several times during the flash mob.
  • An advertisement for Breadstix is seen on a sign behind a Directory booth at the mall, which might imply that Breadstix is located in the mall.
  • Bryan Ryan is visible among the crowd towards the end of the song. He wears a glum expression, as Artie is triumphantly proving to him that dreams can be achieved, something Bryan berated the club for believing earlier in the episode.
