"I Won't Dance [Multimedia Track]" as written by Jerome Kern, Oscar Ii Hammerstein, Dorothy Fields, Otto Harbach and Jimmy Mchugh....
Think of what you're losing
By constantly refusing to dance with me
You'd be the idol of France with me
And yet you stand there
And shake your foolish head dramatically
While I wait here so ecstatically
You just look and say emphatically

Not this season, yes that's the reason
I won't dance, don't ask me
I won't dance, don't ask me
I won't dance, madam, with you
My heart won't let my feet
Do things they should do

You know what, you're lovely
And so what, you're still lovely
But oh, what you do to me
I'm like an ocean wave that's bumped on the shore
I feel so absolutely stumped on the floor

Yes, when you dance you're charming and you're gentle
Especially when you do the continental
But this feeling isn't purely mental
For heaven rest us, I'm not asbestos

And that's why
I won't dance, why should I
I won't dance, how could I
I won't dance, merci beaucoup
I know that music leads the way to romance
So if I hold you in my arms, I won't dance

I won't dance, don't ask me
I won't dance, don't ask me
I won't dance, monsieur, with you
My heart won't let my feet
Do things they should do

You know what, you're handsome
And so what, you're handsome
But oh, what you do to me
I'm like an ocean wave that's bumped on the shore
I feel so absolutely stumped on the floor

When you dance you're charming and you're gentle
Especially when you do the continental
But this feeling isn't purely mental
For heaven rest us, I'm not asbestos

And that's why
I won't dance, why should I
I won't dance, how could I
I won't dance, merci beaucoup
I know that music leads the way to romance
So if I hold you in my arms, I won't dance

I won't dance, don't ask me
I won't dance, don't ask me
I will not dance, madame, with you
Yes, my heart won't let my feet do things they should do

You know what, you're kinda lovely
And so what, I'm lovely
But oh, what you do to me
I'm like an ocean wave that's bumped on the shore
I feel so absolutely stumped on the floor

When you dance you're charming and you're gentle
Especially when you do the continental
But this feeling isn't purely mental
For heaven rest us, I'm not asbestos, honey

And that's why
I won't dance, why should I
I won't dance, how could I
I won't dance, merci beaucoup
I know that music leads the way to romance
So if I hold you in my arms, I won't dance
