Perry Como - "Dancin" lyrics

Ho! the band stopped playin'
An' the couples stopped swayin'
But we kept on . . . dancin!

The lights went on
An' the crowd was gone
But we kept on . . . dancin!

The janitor said, "Please let me sweep the floor!"
So, I hummed a tune an' we danced right . . .
Thru the door!

It started rainin'
But we both were insane
An' we kept right . . . on dancin'

We looked a sight
By the traffic light
But we . . . kept on dancin'

The signal was red so we just tapped our feet
When the light turned green
Well, we danced across the street!

( Couples parked in cars were romancin' )
They were romancin'
But we kept right in dancin!

( Ba bum ba bum bum' )
Our clothes were drippin'
An' we couldn't help slippin'
But we kept right in dancin!

Our feet were sore
When we reached your door
But we kept right in dancin!

When I kissed ya goodnight
My heart started dancin' too
That's when I knew . . .
That I would dance my whole life thru
With only you . . .

With only you . . .

With only you . . .
My whole life thru
With only you . . .
