I Won't Dance

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong and appears on the album Ella and Louis Again (1957) and on the compilation album The Complete Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong (1997).

Think of what you're losing
By constantly refusing
To dance with me.
You'd be the idol of France with me
And yet you stand there.
And shake your foolish head dramatically
While I wait here so ecstatically.
You just look and say emphatically:

Not this season.
There's a reason.

I won't dance. Don't ask me.
I won't dance. Don't ask me.
I won't dance, Madame, with you.
My heart won't let my feet do things they should do.

You know what? You're lovely.
So what? You're still lovely.
But oh, what you do to me.
I'm like an ocean wave that's bumped on the shore.
I feel so absolutely stumped on the floor.

When you dance you're charming and you're gentle.
Especially when you do The Continental.

But this feeling isn't purely mental.
For heaven rest us.
I'm not asbestos.
And that's why...

I won't dance. Why should I?
I won't dance. How could I?
I won't dance, merci beaucoup.
I know that music leads the way to romance.
So if I hold you in my arms...
I won't dance.


I won't dance. Don't ask me.
I won't dance. Don't ask me.
I won't dance, Monsieur, with you.
My heart won't let my feet do things they should do.

You know what? You're handsome.
And so what? You're handsome.
But oh, what you do to me?
I'm like an ocean wave that's bumped on the shore.
I feel so absolutely stumped on the floor.

When you dance you're charming and you're gentle.
Especially when you do The Continental.

But this feeling isn't purely mental.
For heaven rest us.
I'm not asbestos.
And that's why...

I won't dance. Why should I?
I won't dance. How could I?
I won't dance, merci beaucoup.
I know that music leads the way to romance.
So if I hold you in my arms...
I won't dance.


I won't dance, don't ask me.
I won't dance, don't ask me.
I will not dance, Madame, with you.
My heart won't let my feet do things they should do.

You know what? You're kinda lovely.

And so what? I'm lovely.

But oh, what you do to me.
I'm like an ocean wave that's bumped on the shore.
I feel so absolutely stumped on the floor.

When you dance you're charming and you're gentle.
Especially when you do The Continental.

But this feeling isn't purely mental.
For heaven rest us.
I'm not asbestos, honey.
And that's why...

I won't dance. Why should I?
I won't dance. How could I?
I won't dance, merci beaucoup.
I know that music leads the way to romance.
So if I hold you in my arms...
I won't dance.
