Song Lyric Sunday: Neutron Dance, Pointer Sisters, Beverly Hills Cop

Helen suggested movie music for this Song Lyric Sunday. I drew a complete blank except for “Crystal,” that I had already used. The next song that came to mind, for some odd reason, was “Neutron Dance” by the Pointer Sisters and featured in Eddie Murphy’s Beverly Hills Cop. (Forgot to post this yesterday!)

I don’t want to take it anymore
I’ll just stay here locked behind the door
Just no time to stop and get away
‘Cause I work so hard to make it everyday

Whoo oooh
Whoo oooh

There’s no money falling from the sky
‘Cause a man took my heart and robbed me blind
Someone stole my brand new Chevrolet
And the rent is due, I got no place to stay

Whoo oooh
Whoo oooh

And it’s hard to say
Just how some things never change
And it’s hard to find
Any strength to draw the line
Oh I’m just burning doin’ the neutron dance
I’m just burning doin’ the neutron dance

Industry don’t pay a price that’s fair
All the common people breathing filthy air (Lord have mercy)
Roof caved in on all the simple dreams
And to get ahead your heart starts pumping schemes

And it’s hard to say
Just how some things never change (hey, hey)
And it’s hard to find
Any strength to draw the line (whoa oh)
I’m just burning doin’ the neutron dance
I’m just burning doin’ the neutron dance

Whoo oooh
Whoo oooh

I’m on fire, yeah
I’m on fire, yeah

And it’s hard to say
Just how some things never change
And it’s hard to find
Any strength to draw the line
I’m just burning doin’ the neutron dance
I’m just burning doin’ the neutron dance

I know there’s a pot of gold for me
All I got to do is just believe
I’m so happy doin’ the neutron dance
And I’m just burning doin’ the neutron dance
I’m so happy doin’ the neutron dance
I’m just burning doin’ the neutron dance

Whoo oooh
Whoo oooh
I’m so happy doin’ the neutron dance
And I’m just burning doin’ the neutron dance (yeah, yeah)
Whoo oooh
Whoo oooh
I’m so happy (it’s in my hands)
I’m just burning (it’s in my feet)
I’m so happy (it’s all over me)
I’m just burning (I can’t help myself)
I’m so happy (yeah, yeah)
I’m just burning (oh, yeah)
I’m so happy (oh, yeah)
I’m just burning (I’m just burning)
I’m so happy (oh, yeah)
I’m just burning

  1. Haha, this song is so 80’s. I think I’m in a minority when I admit I didn’t really like the movie. I’m not a huge Eddie Murphy fan… I know, I know, don’t everyone hate me all at once. :)

    Thanks so much for sharing this one. It was fun and it made me smile! :)
