IRVING BERLIN lyrics - I Wouldn't Give "That" For The Man Who Couldn't Dance

IRVING BERLIN
"I Wouldn't Give "That" For The Man Who Couldn't Dance"

[Verse:]
[She:]
The Tom, Dick or Harry that I ever marry
Will have to be a dancer
Before he gets my answer
[He:]
I'm not much at dancing but as for romancing
I know a thing or two
[She:] But that would never do
[He:] Why wouldn't it?

[Refrain:]
[She:]
I wouldn't give "that" for the man who couldn't dance
If only a little bit
He'd have to take a chance

For when the band starts playing a lively air
That's when he'll have to be there
With a light fantastic, very elastic

I wouldn't waste one little tiny little glance
No matter how very much
He spoke about romance

He may be handsome, wealthy
Full of personality
I wouldn't give "that" for the man
Who couldn't dance with me
