Lyrics:
They say this universe is bound to blow
But I say we crank up the calypso control
Apocalyp, apocalyp, apocalypso

Now I’m no dancer as dancers go
But this is one step that you need to know
Apocalyp, apocalyp, apocalypso
We’ll be dancing when we go

Planets come and planets go
Apocalypso
Undisturbed the dancers flow
Apocalypso
Old galaxies can be cold
So I’ll hold you close
When this earthly light is burning low
This dance will take you to the next plateau

Apocalyp, apocalyp, apocalypso
We’ll be dancing when we go
We’ll be dancing when we go

Planets come and planets go
Apocalypso
Undisturbed the dancers flow
Apocalypso

Yes we’ll ride that final tide
Apocalypso
Gone away just yesterday
Apocalypso
