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
