The Gentleman Prefers To Dance song lyrics

From the film Time Out for Rhythm (1941), sung and danced by Ann Miller

Lyrics:
What’s it gonna be, your dancing or me?
You must make a choice most definitely
I keep singing the blues
I’m playing second fiddle to your dancing shoes

What good’s the moonlight
The stars and the starlight
What good is romance
Obviously, the gentleman prefers to dance

He would rather rumba
What is he thinking of
Did you ever try to rumba
When you’re in love

Nothing can happen while he keeps on tapping
I haven’t a chance
Obviously, the gentleman prefers to
Dance, dance, dance
I might as well forget romance

It’s tough to discover that you’ve got a lover
Who rumba’s around romance
Obviously, the gentleman prefers his steppin’ to kneckin’ with me
The gentleman prefers to dance, obviously!
