Tom Paxton - Do You Want To Dance Lyrics




I find myself a fool
I laugh too loudly, speak inanely
I strive to seem so cool
So self-possessed, I fail mainly

All the hours I spend
Examining my poor reflection
To a childish end
A simple glance in my direction

But what if you should see me
As the hopeless mess I am
Afraid of even trying
As I must confess I am
Afraid of your reaction
If I dare to take the chance
It's the agony of asking
Do you, do you want to dance?

To my friends I boast
If I'm no lover, may God strike me
What I need the most
Is just a hint that you might like me

But what if you should see me
As the hopeless mess I am
Afraid of even trying
As I must confess I am
Afraid of your reaction
If I dare to take the chance
It's the agony of asking
Do you, do you want to dance?
