  • Bed, bed I couldn't go to bed
    My head's too light to try to set it down
    Sleep, sleep I couldn't sleep tonight
    Not for all the jewels in the crown

    I could have danced all night, I could have danced all night
    And still have begged for more
    I could have spread my wings and done a thousand things
    I've never done before

    I'll never know what made it so exciting
    Why all at once my heart took flight
    I only know when he began to dance with me
    I could have danced, danced, danced all night

    It's after three now
    Don't you agree now?
    She ought to be in bed

    I could have danced all night, I could have danced all night
    And still have begged for more
    I could have spread my wings and done a thousand things
    I've never done before

    I'll never know what made it so exciting
    Why all at once my heart took flight
    I only know when he began to dance with me
    I could have danced, danced, danced all night

    I understand dear
    It's all been grand dear
    But now it's time to sleep

    I could have danced all night, I could have danced all night
    And still have begged for more
    I could have spread my wings and done a thousand things
    I've never done before

    I'll never know what made it so exciting
    Why all at once my heart took flight
    I only know when he began to dance with me
    I could have danced, danced, danced all night
