lyrics

Turn out the light, it's too late to fight
The kids are all sleeping, let's call it a night
Honey, stay, don't go away
I know there are more words still left to say

But no matter how hard, no matter how rough
Money gets tight, times will be tough
Baby look in my eyes and remember your wife
The one that you danced down the aisle

I waited my lifetime for just such a man
Who can dance me the way that my baby can.

There's years now between us, more still to come
I know it ain't easy, it's not always fun
But if you just hold on tight, we can make it alright
Someday look back and remember

Though it was long ago I meant what I said
When I told you forever, until I was dead
Baby look in my eyes and remember your wife
The one that you danced down the aisle

I've waited my lifetime for just such a man
Who can dance me the way that my baby can.

Now the song's ended, and another begins
Step out on the dance floor, give me a spin
Hold me and rock me and turn me around
Let's dance while we've still got the time

I've waited my lifetime for just such a man
Who can dance me the way that my baby can.
I've waited my lifetime for just such a man
Who can dance me the way that my baby can.
