MM-

TONIGHT'S THE CHRISTMAS DANCE IN LONDON TOWN,
THE LIGHTS ARE UP, THE SNOW IS FALLING DOWN.
LIKE EV'RY YEAR I CATCH YOUR EYE ACROS THE FLOOR
BUT TOO AFRAID TO DO MUCH MORE.


AT THE CHRISTMAS DANCE,
THAT MAGIC TIME OF YEAR WHEN DREAMS COME TRUE.
YEH, THE CHRISTMAS DANCE,
THE ONLY DANCE I WANNA DANCE IS YOU.
THE MUSIC'S PLAYING, HEARTS ARE SWAYING TO THE RHYTHM OF ROMANCE
AT THE CHRISTMAS DANCE.


I COMBED MY HAIR AND STRAIGHTENED OUT MY TIE,
THIS YEAR I'M GONNA ASK YOU DO OR DIE
AND I'LL NEED EV'RY OUNCE OF COURAGE I CAN FIND,
FEET DON'T FAIL ME, LOVE BE KIND.


AT THE CHRISTMAS DANCE,
THAT MAGIC TIME OF YEAR WHEN DREAMS COME TRUE.
THE CHRISTMAS DANCE,
THE ONLY DANCE I WANNA DANCE IS YOU.
THE MUSIC'S PLAYING, HEARTS ARE SWAYING TO THE RHYTHM OF ROMANCE,
AT THE CHRISTMAS DANCE.


NO MORE SEARCHING LOVE AT LAST (no more searching love at last)
NO MORE GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS PAST (no more ghosts of Christmas past)
UNDER THE MISTLETOE WE KISSED AND DANCED SO SLOW.


HO!


AND WHEN OUR CHILDREN ASK OF THE MEANING OF ROMANCE


AT THE CHRISTMAS DANCE,
THAT MAGIC TIME OF YEAR WHEN DREAMS COME TRUE.
AT THE CHRISTMAS DANCE,
THE ONLY DANCE I WANNA DANCE IS YOU.
THE MUSIC'S PLAYING, HEARTS ARE SWAYING TO THE RHYTHM OF ROMANCE,
AT THE CHRISTMAS DANCE.


(Oh, the Christmas dance)
(Yeah, the Christmas dance)
(Oh, the Christmas dance)
(Yeah, the Christmas dance, yeah)


MERRY CHRISTMAS!
(Yeah, the Christmas dance, yeah)
MERRY CHRISTMAS! YEAH,
MERRY CHRISTMAS! YES! YEAH! YEAH!


AT THE CHRISTMAS DANCE!
