I'm Forty-One, the moon is full,
You make love very well.
You touch me like I touch myself,
I like you Mademoiselle.
You're so fresh and you're so new,
I do enjoy you, Miss.
There's nothing I would rather do
Than move around just like this
But do I have to dance all night?
But do I have to dance all night?
Ooh tell me, Bird of Paradise,
Do I have to dance all night?
You never really have to tell me what
You really think of me - alright.
Let's say I'm doing fine,
But do I have to dance all night?
Do I have to dance all night? ...
I learned this step a while ago.
I had to practice it while everybody slept.
I waited half my life for you, you know,
I didn't even think that you'd accept.
And here you are before me in the flesh
Saying "Yes, yes, yes!"
But do I have to dance all night? ...
I learned this step a while ago ...
But do I have to dance all night? ...
