I Won't Dance

Lyrics:Oscar Hammerstein II ,Otto Harbach
Music:Jerome Kern

The song was publishe 1934.

However, Three Sisters flopped and was quickly forgotten,
so when the time came to film the Kern-Harbach musical Roberta,
the song was interpolated into the film.

It became such a hit that it is now included in all stage revivals
and recordings of Roberta.


I won't dance, don't ask me
I won't dance, don't ask me
I won't dance, Madame, with you
My heart won't let my feet do things that they should do

You know what?, you're lovely
You know what?, you're so lovely
And, oh, what you do to me
I'm like an ocean wave that's bumped on the shore
I feel so absolutely stumped on the floor

When you dance, you're charming and you're gentle
'specially when you do the Continental
But this feeling isn't purely mental
For, heaven rest us, I am not asbestos

And that's why
I won't dance, why should I?
I won't dance, how could I?
I won't dance, merci beaucoup
I know that music leads the way to romance,
So if I hold you in arms I won't dance
