I Could Have Danced All Night [song lyrics]

   

Song lyrics to I Could Have Danced All Night, from My Fair Lady. Music by Frederick Loewe. Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner

I Could Have Danced All Night is a sweet, solo song. It’s sung by Eliza Doolittle, after coming home from her successful introduction to society. Where she danced …

Bed, bed I couldn’t go to bed
My head’s too light to try to set it down
Sleep, sleep I couldn’t sleep tonight
Not for all the jewels in the crown

I could have danced all night, I could have danced all night
And still have begged for more
I could have spread my wings and done a thousand things
I’ve never done before

I’ll never know what made it so exciting
Why all at once my heart took flight
I only know when he began to dance with me
I could have danced, danced, danced all night

It’s after three now
Don’t you agree now?
She ought to be in bed

I could have danced all night, I could have danced all night
And still have begged for more
I could have spread my wings and done a thousand things
I’ve never done before

I’ll never know what made it so exciting
Why all at once my heart took flight
I only know when he began to dance with me
I could have danced, danced, danced all night

I understand dear
It’s all been grand dear
But now it’s time to sleep

I could have danced all night, I could have danced all night
And still have begged for more
I could have spread my wings and done a thousand things
I’ve never done before

I’ll never know what made it so exciting
Why all at once my heart took flight
I only know when he began to dance with me
I could have danced, danced, danced all night
