Click to hear song:
The rain may fall, the wind may blow, it may get down to 20 below,
But I don’t mind ’cause I’m goin’ to the dance with you.
The rent’s unpaid, the cupboard’s bare, I don’t mind, I won’t despair
‘Cause I’m in love and goin’ to the dance with you.
And when the orchestra plays so sweet and low,
I’ll take your hand and hope you’ll know
How I wish the dance would never end, and how I’d give my love forever.
And I’d be yours, please be mine, you have made my world divine
I’m in love, goin’ to the dance with you.
Text: Goin’ to the Dance With You, excerpt, by Richard Dworsky
