I CAN'T DANCE
(Faron Young)
FARON YOUNG (CAPITOL 3898, 1956)

Well, I went to a hop the other night
The joint was a-jumpin', everything was right
The cats were doin' the bop, the chicken too
But I sat alone at a table for two
'Cause I can't dance, no-no, I can't dance, no-no
Can't get in the groove, 'cause my feets won't move
And I can't dance, no-no, and I can't dance, no-no

Well, I went to Arthur Murray's and I spent my dough
I soon found out I was a fool to go
They showed me a waltz, two-step too
I kept a-trippin' over my blue suede shoes
'Cause I can't dance, no-no, I can't dance, no-no
Can't get in the groove, 'cause my feets won't move
And I can't dance, no-no, and I can't dance, no-no

(Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, ooh)

Well, I saw a pretty gal and I got a chance
I asked her if she'd show me how to dance
She said, uh-uh, I can't go
She said, baby there's something you should know
She said, I can't dance, no-no, I can't dance, no-no
Can't get in the groove, 'cause her feets won't move
And she can't dance, no-no, and she can't dance, no-no

So I jumped into my automobile
Scooted myself right under the wheel
I said pretty baby, we might as well go
If we can't dance we'll take in a show
'Cause we can't dance, no-no, we can't dance, no-no
Can't get in the groove, 'cause our feets won't move
And we can't dance, no-no, and we can't dance, no-no
I can't dance
I can't dance
I can't dance
