Do I Have To Dance All Night?

©Leonard Cohen, released on single (1976)

.

I'm Forty-One, the moon is full,

you make love very well.

You touch me like I touch myself,

I like you Mademoiselle.

.

You're so fresh and you're so new,

I do enjoy you, Miss.

There's nothing I would rather do

than move around just like this

.

But do I have to dance all night?

But do I have to dance all night?

Ooh tell me, Bird of Paradise,

do I have to dance all night?

.

You never really have to tell me what

you really think of me - alright.

Let's say I'm doing fine,

but do I have to dance all night?

.

Do I have to dance all night? ...

.

I learned this step a while ago.

I had to practice it while everybody slept.

I waited half my life for you, you know,

I didn't even think that you'd accept.

And here you are before me in the flesh

saying "Yes, yes, yes!"

.

But do I have to dance all night? ...

.

I learned this step a while ago ...

.

But do I have to dance all night? ...
