May I have this dance?
I've been waitin' for this chance
All night long
And this night I'll always treasure
If I could have this pleasure
Of [Incomprehensible]

Don't you know I've bit my nails in two
Wantin' to dance with you?
But I was much too shy
I never had the nerve before
'Til you'd dance across the floor
With another guy

The way he held you in his arms
With his many charms
I knew my chances were slim
In order to get to you
There's only one thing to do
So I got rid of him

I told him that a girl
By the name of Pearl
Was lookin' for him
And when I turned around
He was nowhere to be found
So, here I am

I gotta have this dance
(May I have this dance?)
Honey, I
(May I have this dance?)
Honey, I, honey, I
(May I have? May I have?)
Honey, I, have this dance?
(May I have this dance?)

Honey, I
(May I have this dance with you?)
Gotta have this dance
(May I have this dance?)
(May I have? May I have?)
I
(May I have this dance?)
