Ella Fitzgerald – Shall We Dance? lyrics

Drop that long face
Come on have your fling
Why keep nursing the blues?
If you want this old world on a string

Put on your dancing shoes
Stop wasting time
Put on your dancing shoes
Watch your spirits climb

Shall we dance
Or keep on mopin'?
Shall we dance
And walk on air?

Shall we give in to despair?
Or shall we dance with never a care?
Life is short
We're growing older

Don't you be an also-ran
You'd better dance, little lady
Dance, little man
Dance whenever you can.
