Going to a go-go, everybody
Going to a go-go, come on now

Well there's a brand new place I've found
People come in from miles around
They come from everywhere, if you drop in there
You see everyone in town

Don't you want to go?
And that's all right

Tell me


It doesn't matter if you're black
It doesn't matter if you're white
You take a dollar fifty, a six pack of beer
We're going to dance all night

It doesn't matter if you come in drag
It doesn't matter if you come in stag
I'm telling everyone to get down here
Every taxi that you flag is...
