"cut a rug" in lyrics

Train - Hey, Soul Sister


The way you can cut a rug
Watching you is the only drug I need
So gangster, I'm so thug

Destiny's Child - Bootylicious

I shake my jelly at every chance
When I whip with my hips you slip into a trance
I'm hoping you can handle all this jelly that I have
Now let's cut a rug while we scat some jazz

I don't think you ready for this jelly

MGMT - The Youth

This is a call of arms to live and love and sleep together
We could flood the streets with love or light or heat whatever
Lock the parents out, cut a rug, twist and shout
Wave your hands
Make it rain

Chic - Good times

Time marches on, Just can't wait
The clock keeps turning, Why hesitate
You silly fool, You can't change your fate
Let's cut a rug, A little jive and jitterbug
We want the best, We won't settle for less
Don't be a drag, Participate

Lana Del Rey - When The World Was At War We Kept Dancing

Other people may not understand

Shake it up, throw your hands up and get loose
Cut a rug, lean into the fucking youth
Choreo, we just want the fucking truth
(told by the frightened)

Josh Turner - Why Don't We Just Dance?

Down the hall, maybe straight up the stairs
Bouncin' off the wall, floatin' on air
Baby, why don't we just dance?
I'll cut a rug

Well it might be me but the way I see it
