  • I know as the night goes on
    You might end up with someone
    So why do I bite my tongue?
    Oh, I wanna know ya
    I'm lookin' around the room
    Is one of those strangers you?
    And do you notice me too?
    Oh, I wanna know ya

    (I want ya) you're a face I won't forget
    (I want ya) don't know how much time is left
    (I want ya) haven't had a moment yet
    Ooh

    Oh, dance with me, it won't kill ya
    And one for the road
    Dance with me, it won't kill ya
    And one before you go
    Dance with me, it won't kill ya
    And one for the road
    So why won't you stay a little longer?

    Dance with me
    Dance with me
    (Mon amour)

    You're putting your jacket on
    Oh no, is the moment gone?
    Don't wanna regret this one
    Ooh, I wanna know ya

    (I want ya) you're a face I won't forget
    (I want ya) don't know how much time is left
    (I want ya) haven't had a moment yet
    Ooh

    Oh, dance with me, it won't kill ya
    And one for the road
    Dance with me, it won't kill ya
    And one before you go
    Dance with me, it won't kill ya
    And one for the road
    So why won't you stay a little longer?

    Dance with me
    (Mon amour)
    Dance with me
    (Mon amour)

    I know as the night goes on
    You might end up with someone
    So why do I bite my tongue?
    Ooh, I wanna know ya

    Oh, dance with me, it won't kill ya
    And one for the road
    Dance with me, it won't kill ya
    And one before you go
    Dance with me, it won't kill ya
    And one for the road
    So why won't you stay a little longer?

    So why don't you just stay a little longer?
    So why don't you just stay a little longer?
    Woah, woah, yeah
    So why don't you just stay a little longer?

    So why don't you just stay a little longer?
