May I have this dance
I've been waitin' for this chance
All night long (all night long)
And this night I'll always treasure
If I could have the pleasure
To escort you

Don't you know I've bit my nails in to
Wantin' to dance with you
But I was much too shy
I never had the nerve
Before you'd dance across the floor with another guy
The way he held you in his arms
With his many charms
I knew my chances were slim
In order to get to you
There's only one thing to do
So I got rid of him

Hey
Ooh hoo I told him that a girl
By the name of pearl
Was looking for him
And when I turned around
He was nowhere to be found

So here I am
Oh I gotta have this dance (gotta have this dance with you)
Honey I (gotta have this dance with you)
Honey I, honey I, honey I, have this dance
Honey I (gotta have this dance with you)
Gotta have this dance
Oh
