LyricsEdit

There's a hole in the wall next to you
Things with legs are crawling through
They're madly searching for the door in your room
You're coming out, you're going down

There's an all night party in room 7609
La la la Late Bar (ooh) la la la la la la late
You can dance together all night, if you've got the time
La la la Late Bar (ooh) la la la la la la late

Bodies move like flies on the wall
You wanna run, there's no space at all
The dancer's spinning in the mirror ball
You're coming out, you're coming 'round

But there's an all night party in room 7609
La la la Late Bar (ooh) la la la la la la late
You can dance together all night, if you've got the time
La la la Late Bar (ooh) la la la la la la late

Just come to the Late Bar
Come, so fast
Drink
I know what I'm talking about
I know what I'm doing
Aaaaaaaaaaaahh

There's an all night party in room 7609
La la la Late Bar (ooh) la la la la la la late
And you can dance together all night, if you've got the time
La la la Late Bar (ooh) la la la la la la late
