I Won't Dance
  • I Won't Dance

Lyrics

Ella Fitzgerald

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 feet do things that they should do

You know what, you're lovely you know what, you're so lovely
And you know 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 beau coup

I know
That music lead the way to romance
So if I hold you in 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 madame with you
My heart won't let me feet do things that
They want to do

You know what, you're so lovely, ring a ding-ding, you're lovely
And you know 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,
I won't dance

I won't dance, Merci beau coup
I know that music leads the way to romance

So if I hold
You in arms I won't dance
