Josh Woodward: I just wanted to dance

I just wanted to dance

You’re standing there like a statue
So I decided to ask you
“Do you wanna dance?”
And then you took my hand
And you swung me around the grand old ballroom
You said “it’s nice to meet you, now let’s get married!”
I can see you like to boogie down
But if you’re looking for a wedding gown, I’m not your suitor
I just wanted to dance

I’m ready, willing, and able
To dance you under the table
But I don’t want to be stuck in a minivan
With a 401(k) plan and picket fences out in the lawn
In deep suburbia
You sure know how to cut a rug
But if you’re looking for a cuddlebug, I’m not quite ready
I just wanted to dance

Well all my friends have got big degrees
They’re driving ’round in SUVs
But that’s not the kind of life for me right now

Someday I might find a career
Get a car with second gear
Until then, I just wanna be clear with you

Well, I’m sorry that I digressed
You look lovely in that dress
So let’s go out and shake our butts like no one’s watching

Here’s my number if you wanna chat
You can keep it or, give it back, it makes no difference
‘Cause I just wanted to dance
