Papa said don't go to discos
Mama said don't play with boys
Sister said stop all romancing
Brother said stop all your noise

Breakaway ha, ha breakaway
Breakaway ha, ha breakaway

Papa said ain't working harder
Better stay and work through the night
Come over here and sit in my lap now
You might get a rise if you do what is right

Breakaway ha, ha breakaway
Breakaway ha, ha breakaway
Got to tear off your chains
Pull up your roots
Pack up your money
And put on back your boots and breakaway

Breakaway ha, ha breakaway
Breakaway ha, ha breakaway

Stand up boy, down at the disco
Say I like you, will you dance on with me
Say I love you, you're the girl I've been wanting
Maybe some day you can marry me

Breakaway ha, ha breakaway
Breakaway ha, ha breakaway

Got to tear off your chains...
