Sweet "Ballroom Blitz" - Live 2015 (Official)


Sweet performing in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin on the ZDF New Years show "Willkommen 2016".



"The Ballroom Blitz" (often called "Ballroom Blitz") is a song by the British glam rock band Sweet, written by Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman. The song was recorded at Audio International Studio, 18 Rodmarton Street, London, and released as a single in September 1973.


"The Ballroom Blitz" was inspired by an incident on 27 January 1973 when the band were performing at the Grand Hall in Kilmarnock, Scotland, and were driven offstage by a bottling.




Lyrics


Are you ready, Steve? Uh-ha!

Andy? Yeah!

Mick? Okay.

All right, fellows, let's go!


Oh, it's been getting so hard

Livin' with the things you do to me, ah-ha

My dreams are getting so strange

I'd like to tell you everything I see, mm


Oh, I see a man at the back as a matter of fact

His eyes are red as the sun

And a 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 frightening

And the music was soothing

And they all started grooving

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


And the man at the back said: "Everyone attack"

And it turned into a ballroom blitz

And the girl in the corner said: "Boy, I wanna warn ya"

It'll turn into a ballroom blitz

Ballroom blitz

Ballroom blitz

Ballroom blitz

Ballroom blitz


Oh, I'm 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, ah-ha


Now the man at the back is ready to crack

As he raises his hands to the sky

And the girl in the corner is everyone's mourner

She could kill you with a wink of her eye


Oh yeah, it was electric

So frantically hectic

And the band started leaving

'Cause they all stopped breathing

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


And the man at the back said: "Everyone attack"

And it turned into a ballroom blitz

And the girl in the corner said: "Boy, I wanna warn ya"

It'll turn into a ballroom blitz

Ballroom blitz


Oh yeah, it was like lightning

Everybody was frightening

And the music was soothing

'Cause they all started grooving

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


And the man at the back said: "Everyone attack"

And it turned into a ballroom blitz

And the girl in the corner said: "Boy, I wanna warn ya"

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
