Marty Robbins – While You're Dancing lyrics

While you're dancin'
I'll just sit here at this lonely table
While you're laughin'
I'll try to force a smile as long as I'm able
While you're clingin' to them
I'll keep clingin' to the past
Gettin' sicker inside
While the lonely minutes pass
Oh, the nights never end too fast
While you're dancin'

While you're dancin'
For just a moment you're anybody's baby
You're romancin'
In your mind or behind my back, maybe
In your heart you keep wishin'
That I would go away
So you could leave with someone else
I wasn't born yesterday
Oh. I don't know what to do or say
While you're dancin'

It seems like such a sin you'd
Make me feel this way
But sometimes I wonder if you know
What feelin' is
I guess I'll always let you
Make me feel this way
And as long as you let me I'll stay

While you're dancin'
I'll just keep on a-sittin' at this table
While they're laughin' at me
I'll try to take it just as long as I'm able
While you're wanderin' cross the floor
I'll keep wonderin' deep inside
If I had walked out long ago
How much less would I have cried
Oh, how many times have I cried
While you're dancin'
Oh, how many times have I cried
While you're dancin'
