"Never Gonna Dance [From Swing Time]" as written by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields....
Though, I'm left without a penny
The wolf was discreet
He left me my feet
And so, I put them down on anything
But the la belle
La perfectly swell romance

Never gonna dance
Never gonna dance
Only gonna love
Never gonna dance

Have I a heart that acts like a heart
Or is it a crazy drum
Beating the weird tattoos
Of the St. Louis Blues?

Have I two eyes to see your two eyes
Or see myself on my toes
Dancing to radios
Or Major Edward Bowes?

Though, I'm left without a penny
The wolf was discreet
He left me my feet
And so, I put them down on anything
But the la belle
La perfectly swell romance

Never gonna dance
Never gonna dance
Only gonna love
Never gonna dance

I'll put my shoes on beautiful trees
I'll give my rhythm back to the breeze
My dinner clothes may dine where they please
For all I really want is you

And to Groucho Marx, I give my cravat
To Harpo goes my shiny silk hat
And to heaven, I give a vow
To adore you, I'm starting now
To be much more positive that

Though, I'm left without my penny
The wolf was not smart
He left me my heart
And so, I cannot go for anything
But the la belle
La perfectly swell romance

Never gonna dance
Never gonna dance
Only gonna love you
Never gonna dance
