And, because why not, here’s another attempt at transcribing a Moped track. This time their incandescent version of Abba’s Dancing Queen (including a sneaky shout out to Snap!)
(By the way I’m not terribly excited about the shout out, the band Snap! actually included the exclamation mark in their name, making it rather difficult to discuss them in a calm manner. It was the nineties, we did things differently then.)
Dancing Queen – Moped
Two-thousand and four! You know the score! Come on people! Let’s get busy with the fizzy! Insane-ia-ism!
You can dance, you can dance, Party people! Having the time of your life, I wanna see you shake your booty with a significant degree of confidence tonight! Yes! Ooh, see that girl, watch that scene, Digging the dancing queen,
In dancing queen!
Friday night and the lights are hot, Hangin’ with Moped give it all you got, Little bit of fresh flavour, I’m gonna make you dance, We’re in the mood for some trance,
Only Moped could be those guys, I’m quite small while the other two are high, Bumping in your disco, we’re coming in your ears, In brand new underpants,
And when you get the chance, You are the dancing queen, young and sweet only seventeen, It’s not eighteen but it’s legal! Dancing queen, feel the meat from a tangerine, oh yeah! Arrr-aargh! You can dance, Yes! You can jive, having the time of your life, You’re twisting the lemons man! See that girl, My lemons! Watch that scene, Whip it! Digging the dancing queen, Arrr-aargh!
You’ve got to push the groove and pump it up to the max, We’re like a train to your brain laying down nineteen fresh tracks, We’ll always run to the rhythm, get down with the flow, We’re bigger than the Beatles! You do it – Darius! Duh-uhhh,
Yes! That’s right! I’m serious as eczema when I’m playing on my decks!
You are the dancing queen, young and sweet only seventeen, Dancing queen! She’s bootiful! Really bootiful! You are the dancing queen, young and sweet only seventeen, Inhale! Exhale! Don’t forget to breathe! You are the dancing queen,
