"I'm Happy Just to Dance with You" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
Before this dance is through
I think I'll love you, too
I'm so happy when you dance with me

I don't wanna kiss or hold your hand
If it's funny try and understand
There is really nothing else I'd rather do
'Cause I'm happy just to dance with you

I don't need to hug or hold you tight
I just wanna dance with you all night
In this world there's nothing I would rather do
'Cause I'm happy just to dance with you

Just to dance with you
Is everything I need
Before this dance is through
I think I'll love you, too
I'm so happy when you dance with me

If somebody tries to take my place
Let's pretend we just can't see his face
In this world there's nothing I would rather do
'Cause I'm happy just to dance with you

Just to dance with you
Is everything I need
Before this dance is through
I think I'll love you, too
I'm so happy when you dance with me

If somebody tries to take my place
Let's pretend we just can't see his face
In this world there's nothing I would rather do
I discovered I'm in love with you
'Cause I'm happy just to dance with you

    General CommentI love this song and george sings it very well,its from the early days although all beatles songs are excellant,except maybe "with in you without you" a little to wierd for me, For all you posers who claim to like the beatles all of a sudde,b/c "I am sam" comeout, it is a instrumebtal,indian inspired song with George an the sitar and Ringo on tamberine.Yeah i guess i do like the song!

    General CommentThis song was written by John for George to sing. At the early stages of their career, George was somewhat limited in the ability to write songs and range of singing. Realizing that George was feeling a bit "left out", John penned "I'm Happy Just To Dance With You", handed it to George and said "why don't you sing the lead on this one!" Prior to his death in 1980, John did referred back to this song as he was expressing frustration regarding the book George wrote entitled "I Me Mine". The book covered George's career and success and there wasn't even a mere reference to John. John's response to this was "Gee George, you're welcome!"

    General Commentwell, i guess john didn't like this song too much, which is why it was given to george...but i love it

    ...and i believe george was the only beatle who played on "within you without you"

    General CommentThis one tries to use reverse psychology to get into some chick's pants. That's all. "Oh baby, I just want to dance with you." Yeah, right.

    General CommentI don’t wanna kiss or hold your hand,
    If it’s funny, try an’ understand.
    There is nothing else I’d rather do,
    ‘Cos I’m happy just to dance with you.

    Haha, I think that definitely is reverse psychology. All the same, it is a fun song written for George to sing (one of the first).
