I Like to Lead when I Dance Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

A little voice, keeps talking to me
From way down deep inside
What does this voice, keep saying to me?
It says, "Pass this affair and pass it wide"

You may be a puzzle
But I like the way the parts fit
Still that little voice says
"Go get your track shoes put them on and git"

We could go the distance, and find us romance
I like your persistence, your style and your stance
There's only one problem, the tiniest problem
I like to lead when I dance

Your eyes do the speaking, they talk with each glance
My will-power's creaking, I might take a chance
And though you're the charmer who could bend my armor
I like to lead when I dance

I like to steer the car whenever I drive
And hold the door ajar when we arrive
So, if it's decided that this is romance
My sweet, I'll repeat in advance

I like to lead when I dance
I like to lead when I dance
When Adam bit the fruit as fashions were then
He got that fig-leaf suit, for which, Amen

So, if it's decided I'm wearing the pants
Then Eve, I'd say we've got romance
I like to lead, I set the speed, I like to lead when I dance
When I dance, when I dance, when I dance
