This riff came out after a quick unsuccessful attempt at "Neon Knights" ...The lyrics are about the hit television show "Dancing with the Stars"


Not everyone's got the will
And some don't get the same chance
And some don't even have the right
But your just now learning to dance

Your getting good at doing the hustle
The shimmy shake, the jerk, the boogaloo
Getting down on the latin tango
While they boogie on the backs of the working poor

The streets are filling up with desparate people
They're marginalized, hungry, lied to, confused
Lock the gates cuz you might not be safe
Then do the worry cause they're coming after you

Boogie woogie on the backs of the working poor

Not everyone gets the same breaks
Broken homes, bones, hearts, all mental and sick
Dirty words, dirty clothes, dirty words, dirty jobs
And your just now doing the dance

Your getting good the hustle, the shake , the fly, the bump, the watusi too
Watch the robot do the twist while they boogie on the backs of the working poor

Boogie woogie on the backs of the working poor
