"I Could Have Danced All Night" as written by and Alan Jay/loewe Lerner....
Bed! Bed! I couldn't go to bed!
My head's too light to try to set it down!
Sleep! Sleep! I couldn't sleep tonight.
Not for all the jewels in the crown!

I could have danced all night!
I could have danced all night!
And still have begged for more.
I could have spread my wings

And done a thousand things
I've never done before.
I'll never know
What made it so exciting;

Why all at once
My heart took flight.
I only know when he
Began to dance with me
I could have danced, danced, danced all night!

It's after three now.

Don't you agree now,
She ought to be in bed.

I could have danced all night!
I could have danced all night!
And still have begged for more.
I could have spread my wings

And done a thousand things
I've never done before.
I'll never know
What made it so exciting.

Why all at once my heart took flight.
I only know when he
Began to dance with me.
I could have danced, danced danced all night!

I understand, dear.
It's all been grand, dear.
But now it's time to sleep.

I could have danced all night,
I could have danced all night.
And still have begged for more.
I could have spread my wings,

And done a thousand things
I've never done before.
I'll never know
What made it so exciting.

Why all at once my heart took flight.
I only know when he
Began to dance with me
I could have danced, danced, danced

All night!
