And if my two left feet could settle down and split the difference
Tripping over myself in every way that I know how
Perhaps in time I could surpass my coy facade of vast indifference
But I've already reached the maximum of what my law allows

You tell me to relax, you tell me not to try so hard
But in the end it only makes me want you more
To figure out some way to play some major part

So I watch her move and I watch her work
Satisfy my voyeuristic quirk
Old habits, they are hard to break
Just harder than it is to take

And when she looks away I tap my feet
I try my best to be discreet
Careful so she won't find out
How much I want to shout

Come on and dance with me Felicia
And show me how to do that step
I never thought I could
You always move so gracefully
And I was never any good
But maybe if you'll dance with me

I'd feel as nimble as a cheetah, Felicia
The momentary soaring of an eagle would be me
Come on, Felicia set me free
And when you start to close your eyes
You know you move so beautifully
I want to dance with you
Come on and dance with me, Felicia

I suppose the thing that gets me most is that if I'd bothered ever
I wouldn't feel so much like Casey who never got to bat
You cannot help but laugh at me singing better late than never
And more and more, I realize I have no argument for that

I can almost work up the nerve for a declaration
I can almost hear me speak the words as I gain resolve
But then you move and you twirl and you smile at me
And my inhibition and my courage both dissolve

So I'm standing there and I do not move
In spite of her momentous groove
And for a moment, I can barely see
A glimpse of how good it could be

And then I must admit that I want to try
To look Felicia in the eye
And when the music starts to play
To smile at her and say

Come on and dance with me, Felicia
And show me how to do that step
I never thought I could
You always move so gracefully
And I was never any good
But maybe if you'll dance with me

I'd feel as nimble as a cheetah, Felicia
The momentary soaring of an eagle would be me
Come on, Felicia, set me free
And when you start to close your eyes
You know you move so beautifully
I want to dance with you
Come on and dance with me, Felicia

And so I'm standing there and I do not move
In spite of her momentous groove
And for a moment I can barely see
A glimpse of how good it could be

And then I must admit that I want to try
To look Felicia in the eye
And when the music starts to play
To smile at her and say

Come on and dance with me, Felicia
And show me how to do that step
I never thought I could
You always move so gracefully
And I was never any good
But maybe if you'll dance with me

I'd feel as nimble as a cheetah, Felicia
The momentary soaring of an eagle would be me
Come on, Felicia, set me free
And when you start to close your eyes
You know you move so beautifully
I want to dance with you
Come on and dance with me, Felicia

I want to dance with you
Come on and dance with me, Felicia
Dance with me
I want to dance with you, Felicia
