[Verse 1: Jung Kook, RM]
It’s the thought of being young
When your heart’s just like a drum
Beating louder with no way to guard it
When it all seems like it’s wrong
Just sing along to Elton John
And to that feeling, we’re just getting started

[Pre-Chorus: Jimin, Jin]
When the nights get colder
And the rhythms got you falling behind
Just dream about that moment
When you look yourself right in the eye, eye, eye
Then you say

[Chorus: Jung Kook, V]
I wanna dance
The music’s got me going
Ain’t nothing that can stop how we move, yeah
Let’s break our plans
And live just like we’re golden
And roll in like we’re dancing fools

[Post-Chorus: Jimin, RM, Jin]
We don’t need to worry
‘Cause when we fall, we know how to land
Don’t need to talk the talk, just walk the walk tonight
‘Cause we don’t need permission to dance

[Verse 2: j-hope, SUGA, Jung Kook]
There’s always something that’s standing in the way
But if you don’t let it faze ya
You’ll know just how to break
Just keep the right vibe, yeah
‘Cause there’s no looking back
There ain’t no one to prove
We don’t got this on lock
(Yeah)

[Pre-Chorus: V, Jung Kook, Jimin]
The wait is over
The time is now so let’s do it right, mm (Yeah)
Yeah we’ll keep going
And stay up until we see the sunri-i-ise
(Yeah)
And we’ll say

[Chorus: V, Jin]
I wanna dance
The music’s got me going
Ain’t nothing that can stop how we move, yeah
Let’s break our plans
And live just like we’re golden
And roll in like we’re dancing fools

[Post-Chorus: Jung Kook, j-hope, Jimin]
We don’t need to worry
‘Cause when we fall, we know how to land
Don’t need to talk the talk, just walk the walk tonight
‘Cause we don’t need permission to dance

[Refrain: Jin, Jung Kook]
Da-na-na-na-na-na-na
Da-na-na-na-na-na-na
Da-na-na-na-na-na-na
No, we don’t need permission to dance
Da-na-na-na-na-na-na (Hey)
Da-na-na-na-na-na-na
Da-na-na-na-na-na-na

[Bridge: Jimin, V]
Well, let me show ya
That we can keep the fire alive, mm
‘Cause it’s not over
Till it’s over, say it one more time
Say

[Chorus: Jung Kook, Jimin]
I wanna dance
The music’s got me going (Music’s got me going)
Ain’t nothing that can stop how we move, yeah (Hey, yeah)
Let’s break our plans
And live just like we’re golden
(Ooh)
And roll in like we’re dancing fools (Like we’re dancing fools)

[Post-Chorus: Jin, SUGA, V, Jung Kook]
We don’t need to worry
‘Cause when we fall, we know how to land (We know how to land)
Don’t need to talk the talk, just walk the walk tonight (Ooh)
‘Cause we don’t need permission to dance“Permission to Dance” is a dance-pop song that was made to “make hearts beat to the rhythm of BTS’s positive energy.” The track marks the group’s third non-Korean main release of 2021, following “Film out” and “Butter.”In the livestream the group hosted on V Live after achieving their fifth week on the No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the members revealed that they worked on “Permission to Dance” in February 2021, before their latest record-breaking single “Butter.”For the song, the septet teamed up again with people they’ve trusted musically before—singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran with whom they collaborated on “Make It Right” off their 2019 album Map of the Soul: Persona, and Jenna Andrews who worked with the group on “Dynamite,” “Savage Love (Remix),” and “Butter.”The name of the song was released by accident on June 15, 2021, by Universal Music Japan with the album’s pre-order announcement, and was quickly deleted. Again, the name of the song and the involvement of Ed Sheeran was spoiled by the artist himself during an Instagram Q&A, when he confirmed that he had teamed up with BTS once again for the group’s upcoming song. He officially confirmed it later during an interview with the radio show Most Requested Live on June 27, 2021.“Permission to Dance’s” official teaser received over 16M views and 3M likes on YouTube in its first 24 hours of release.It’s worth to mention that the song’s release date was set not without a reason, as it’s the eighth anniversary of the group’s fanbase, ARMY.“Permission to dance” choreography incorporates the international sign language—during the dance, the group shows sings for “fun,” “dance,” and “peace,” which all have positive meanings and are easy to follow for everyone.
