​I Won't Dance

This song is by Tom Wopat.

I won't dance, don't ask me!
I won't dance, don't ask me!
I won't dance, madam with you!
My heart won't let my feet do things they should do!

You know what? You're lovely!
So what? You're lovely
And, 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
Specially when you do the Continental
But this feeling isn't purely mental
For Heaven rest us, I am not as best as
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!
My heart won't let my feet do things they should do!
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
Specially when you do the Continental
But this feeling isn't purely mental
For Heaven rest us, I am not as best as
And that's why:

I won't dance, I won't dance
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, I won't dance, I won't dance!
