Ella Fitzgerald – I Won't Dance lyrics

The lyrics were first written by oscar hammerstein ii and otto harbach for the london musical three
Sisters, which premiered
In 1934. Then when rko released the screen version in march of 1935, dorothy fields and jimmy mchugh
Changed the lyrics of the song, only keeping the title which oscar hammerstein ii originated.

I wont dance, don't ask me
I wont dance, don't ask me
I wont dance madame with you
My heart wont
Let me feet do things that they sould do

You know what, you're lovely you know what, you're so lovely

And you know 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 chairming and you're gentle
Specially 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
Wont dance, why sould i?

I wont dance, how could i?
I wont dance, merçi beacoup

I know
That music lead the way to romance
So if I hold you in arms I wont dance

I wont dance, don't ask me

I wont dance, don't ask me
I wont dance madame with you
My heart wont let me feet do things that
They want to do

You know what, you're so lovely, ring a ding-ding, you're lovely
And you know 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 chairming and you're gentle
Specially 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 wont dance, I
Wont dance

I wont dance, merci beaucoup
I know that music lead the way to romance

So if I hold
You in arms I wont dance
