"We Danced" as written by and Richard O'brien....
The bar was empty
I was sweeping up the floor
That's when she walked in
I said, I'm sorry but we're closed
And she said "I know,
But I'm afraid I left my purse
I said, I put one back behind the bar
I bet it's probably yours
And the next thing that I knew
There we were, lost in conversation
And before I handed her her purse
I said, You'll only get this back on one condition"

And we danced
Out there on that empty hardwood floor
The chairs up and the lights turned way down low
The music played, we held each other close
And we danced

And from that moment
There was never any doubt
I had found the one
That I had always dreamed about
And then one evenin'
When she stopped by after work
I pulled a diamond ring out of the pocket of my shirt
And as her eyes filled up with tears
She said, this is the last thing I expected
And then she took me by the hand
And said, I'll only marry you on one condition

And we danced
Out there on that empty hardwood floor
The chairs up and the lights turned way down low
The music played, we held each other close
And we danced

Like no one else had ever danced before
I can't explain what happened on that floor
But the music played
We held each other close
And we danced
Yeah, we danced

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the kind of relationship where you just take it slow. You don't give yourself physically to the person. You gradually talk, get to know the person on different levels, and eventually you "pulled a diamond ring out of the pocket of my shirt". That's when you know that you're golden for the rest of your life.

    General CommentThis is a perfect song to slow dance to. When it's just me and my girlfriend I can put this song on and turn the lights down and just dance in circles for hours on end to this and a few other songs.

    General CommentAwwe. This song's cute. I rarely listen to country, but I love this song. It reminds me of a little less than a week ago.. my church had a formal dance, and I brought the boy I really liked. The very last song we danced to was exactly how he describes it in the chorus : And we danced
    Out there on
    That empty hardwood floor
    The chairs up and the lights
    Turned way down low
    The music played,
    We hel each other close
    And we danced"

    I miss that night so much. =[
