"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 reached number one in Canada, number two in the UK Singles Chart and the Australian Chart, and number five on the US Billboard Hot 100.


"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-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 in the back as a matter of fact

His eyes were as red as the sun

And the girl in the corner that no one ignores

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 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 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 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.


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 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
