"You Can Make Me Dance, Sing or Anything (Even Take the Dog for a Walk, Mend a Fuse, Fold Away the Ironing Board, or Any Other Domestic Shortcomings)" was the last official single by British rock group Faces. It later appeared on their 1976 greatest hits album Snakes and Ladders / The Best of Faces.

Released under the group title, Rod Stewart and the Faces, the single reached number 12 over Christmas 1974 in the UK singles chart.[2] The song still holds the record for the longest song-title ever to hit the UK chart.[3][4]

As hinted by the title, the song follows a man happy to be with his honey. "And I end up crying, but listen/I can be a millionaire/Honey when you're standing there/You're so exciting/You can make me dance.
