Brave Combo – I Could Have Danced All Night lyrics

Bed? Bed -- I couldn't go to bed
My head's too light to try to settle 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'd never done before
I'll never know what made it so exciting
When 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

Bubba: it's after three now
Don't you agree now
She ought to be in bed
Lauren: I could've danced...
B: your time is up
L: all night...
B: you must be dead
L: I could have danced...
B: your face is drawn
L: all night...
B: your eyes are red
L: and still...
B: now say goodnight
L: have begged...
B: please, turn out the light
L: for more.
B: please, it's really time for you to be in bed
L: I could have spread...
B: just come along
L: my wings...
B: do as you're told
L: and done a thousand...
B: or mr. Finch
L: things
B: is apt to scold
L: I'd nev-
B: you're up too late
L: -er done...
B: please, I'm sure it's late
L: before.
B: please, or as sure as fate you'll catch a cold
L: I'll never know what made it so exciting
When all at once my heart took flight
I only know
B: put down that book
L: when he...
B: the book can keep
L: began to dance...
B: now settle down
L: with me...
B: and go to sleep
L: I could have...
L & b: ... Danced, danced, danced... All night.
