I DANCED WITH A MAN  
©1998 Sally Fingerett, Green Fingers Music, BMI

He’d parade me out on the floor
Be my dancing partner, I’ll need no more
You’re the girl for me in perfect time
Take no other man, say you’ll be mine
So I dance with a man who will not sit down
I dance with a man who will not sit down

The stars would fade, the night would pass
The music dies, we can dance the last
But his eyes would glaze, with pure desire
You mustn’t stop, you mustn’t tire
So I danced with a man who would not sit down
So I dance with a man who would not sit down

He begged of me with a weary eye
Do not slow down, least I’ll die
For my heart beats only as I spin
If I rest, I’ll not rise again
So I danced with a man who could not sit down
So I danced with a man who could not sit down

I had him leave me, and I watched him go
To another he moved toe to toe
And as I watched them whirl away
I swore I heard that young girl say
I danced with a man who would not sit down
I danced with a man who would not sit down
