Song Meaning
Verse 1
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 me do things they should do.
You know what? You're lovely.
Verse 2
You know what, you're lovely. You know what, you're so 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.
Verse 3
When you dance, you're charming and you're gentle,
'Specially when you do the Continental.
Verse 4
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.
Verse 5
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 want to do.
Verse 6
You know what? You're lovely, ring-a-ding,ding, 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.
Verse 7
When you dance, you're charming and you're gentle,
'Specially when you do the Continental.
Verse 8
But this feeling isn't purely mental,
For heaven rest us, I'm not asbestos.
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!
