Won't Somebody Dance With Me

Album: The Best of Lynsey de Paul (1973)
Charted: 14
  • And now the band is playing very slow
    And once again, I'll get my coat and go
    A lonely wallflower waiting by the wall
    Without the will power to face the music at all

    Please, won't somebody dance with me
    Start up a romance with me
    Just someone to care
    Someone, somewhere for a dance with me

    I feel so silly in my patent shoes
    So many partners but none of them will choose
    A lonely wallflower, growing very tired
    Into the small hours and feeling undesired

    Please, won't somebody dance with me
    Start up a romance with me
    Just someone, somewhere
    Someone who dares, take a chance with me

    for a dance with me
    Won't somebody dance with me
    Start up a romance with me
    Just someone, somewhere
    Someone who dares, take a chance with me

    Just someone to care
    Someone, somewhere for a dance with me

    May I have the pleasure of this dance? Writer/s: LYNSEY DE PAUL
