i could have danced all night lyrics – brave combo

bed? bed — i couldn’t go to bed
my head’s too light to try to settle down
sleep? sleep — i couldn’t sleep tonight
not for all the jewels in the crown!

i could have danced all night
i could have danced all night
and still have begged for more
i could have spread my wings
and done a thousand things
i’d never done before
i’ll never know what made it so exciting
when all at once my heart took flight
i only know when he began to dance with me
i could have danced, danced, danced.all night

bubba: it’s after three now
don’t you agree now
she ought to be in bed

b: please, i’m sure it’s late
l: before.
b: please, or as sure as fate you’ll catch a cold
l: i’ll never know what made it so exciting
when all at once my heart took flight
i only know
b: put down that book
l: when he…
b: the book can keep
l: began to dance…
b: now settle down
l: with me…
b: and go to sleep
l: i could have…
