Ballroom Blitz – The Damned

The Damned do a blistering cover of the Sweet song Ballroom Blitz. I was never a big fan of this song, but I never disliked it either. I do like the much heavier version though.

The Lyrics

Are you ready Steve? Uh-huh
Andy? Yeah
Mick? Okay
Alright fellas, let’s go!
Oh it’s been getting so hard
Living with the things you do to me
My dreams are getting so strange
I’d like to tell you everything I see
Oh, I see a man at the back as a matter of fact
His eyes are as red as the sun
And the girl in the corner let no one ignore her
Cause she thinks she’s the passionate one
Oh yeah! It was like lightning
Everybody was fighting
And the music was soothing
And they all started grooving
Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah
And the man in the back said everyone attack
And it turned into a ballroom blitz
And the girl in the corner said boy I want to warn you
It’ll turn into a ballroom blitz
Ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz
Oh reaching out for something
Touching nothing’s all I ever do
Oh I softly call you over
When you appear there’s nothing left of you
And the man in the back is ready to crack
As he raises his hands to the sky
And the girl in the corner is everyone’s woman
She could kill you with a wink of her eye
Oh yeah! It was electric
So perfectly hectic
And the band started leaving
‘Cause they all stopped breathing
Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah
And the man in the back said everyone attack
And it turned into a ballroom blitz
And the girl in the corner said boy I want to warn you
It’ll turn into a ballroom blitz
Ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz
Oh yeah! It was like lightning
Everybody was fighting
And the music was soothing
And they all started grooving
Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah
And the man in the back said everyone attack
And it turned into a ballroom blitz
And the girl in the corner said boy I want to warn you
It’ll turn into a ballroom blitz
Ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz
It’s it’s a ballroom blitz
It’s it’s a ballroom blitz
It’s it’s a ballroom blitz
Yeah, it’s a ballroom blitz
