Now I really should have known
That you’d show up sooner or later
Knowin’ every Friday night
They always have your favorite band
Though someone new is with you at our table
Would it be too much for me to ask
To ask you not to dance

Not tonight, not until
My hearts had some time to heal
Not right now ’til I’m gone
I won’t be here all that long
And when I leave, you can stay
And just dance the night away
But ’til then, do you think that there’s a chance
I could ask you not to dance

I saw you slip the leader of the band
A piece of paper
I knew what song they’d play
Before he took it from your hand
I was wonderin’ if you’d do me one last favor
And if the answer’s no I’ll understand
Could I ask you not to dance
