Once More Around The Dance Floor
 
Lyrics
VERSE
When country was Hank and rock was rock
We met at Rick's Place, oh, yeah, doin' the bop
While the band played Elvis, uh huh, and Jerry Lee
We fell in love, and I knew she would marry me

CHORUS
(Now) (And) (Yes) I'd trade every night
For the rest of my life
For just once more around the dance floor with her

VERSE
Now I listen to old rock and roll, you know that's right, every day
Songs like Ray Charles singin' "Tell Me What'd I Say"
And I know what took me back, yes, indeed, to Rick's Place
On a bright night in the moonlight, I would see her face

Repeat CHORUS

SOLO

VERSE
Or maybe I just wanted, yes, I did, to dance all night
To the music of the fifties; that was our delight
It's been a while since she passed away
And I think of her, yes, I do, every single day

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
You don't have to tell me, granddad
I can see it in your face
The love you shared with my grandmom
Was more like a state of grace

SOLO

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
For just once more around the dance floor with her
