Lyrics

If I could dance

I’d wanna dance like Fred Astaire 

and have his style and flair

as I glide down the stairs

If I could dance

I’d dance away all your cares

 

If I could dance

I’d dance like bubbles in champagne           

I’d be singing in the rain

and though it sounds insane

If I could dance 

I’d dance away all your pain

(refrain)

If I could dance 

I’d dance away your blues

If I Could Dance

I’d dance with you

 

(female verses)

If I could dance

I’d dance like Rita Hayworth

a long slit up my skirt,

and I’d be such a flirt !

If I could dance,

I’d dance away your hurt

 

If I could dance

I’d dance like Ginger Rodgers 

That would best surreal

rI imagine how I’d feel

dancing backwards with Fred Astaire

and in high heels

 (refrain)

If I could dance 

I’d dance away your blues

If I Could Dance

I’d dance with you

 

(duet verse)

If we could dance 

like the Nicholas Brothers did

M: across the floor we’d skid

F: you’d probably break a rib

    You’re  no Gene Kelly

M: Well, you’re no Liza Minelli

 

But,

If we could dance

we’d dance a waltz by Strauss

We’d glide around the house

and we’d be free

 

F: We’d dance the cha cha cha

M: I won’t step on your paws

and we would break the laws

of gravity 

(refrain)

M: If I could dance

     would you dance with me?

F: Put on your dancing shoes,

    I’ll dance with you

(refrain-together)

If I could dance 

I’d dance away your blues

If I Could Dance

I’d dance with you!
