The Wombats - Let's Dance to Joy Division

[Verse 1]
I'm back in Liverpool and everything seems the same
But I worked something out last night
That changed this little boy's brain
A small piece of advice that took twenty-two years in the make
And I will break it for you now; please learn from my mistakes
Please learn from my mistakes

[Chorus 1]
Let's dance to Joy Division and celebrate the irony
Everything is going wrong, but we're so happy
Let's dance to Joy Division and raise our glass to the ceiling
'Cause this could all go so wrong, but we're so happy
Yeah, we're so happy...

[Verse 2]
So if you're ever feeling down, grab your purse and take a taxi
To the darker side of town; that's where we'll be
And we will wait for you and lead you through the dance floor
Up to the DJ booth, you know what to ask for
You know what to ask for...

[Chorus 2]
Go ask for Joy Division and celebrate the irony
Everything is going wrong, but we're so happy
Let's dance to Joy Division and raise our glass to the ceiling
'Cause this could all go so wrong, but we're so happy

"Let's Dance to Joy Division" is a song by The Wombats and the second single taken from their second album "A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation". The song was available to download on 8 October 2007, and was physically released one week later. It is based on a drunken night when lead singer Matthew Murphy danced on a table with his girlfriend to "Love Will Tear Us Apart" by Joy Division. There is a hidden track on the 7" vinyl version of the single, when Tord Øverland-Knudsen sings the theme tune from children's television show Postman Pat in Norwegian. The song features on the BBC Three program "Scallywagga" as the theme tune.
