 Although easy, this dance still has a bit of a challenge about it and is not intended as a  beginner dance.  I have typed the lyrics of the song below so you can sing along as you dance.. Just sing ‘all I want to do is waltz with you’ instead of  singing ‘all I want to do is live with you’.

                                                                  See you on the floor sometime… Jan                                                  

Original sheet by

Jan Wyllie

I don't want to say goodbye

Let the stars shine through.

I don't want to say goodbye

All I want to do is live with you.

 

Just like the light of the morning

After the darkness has gone

The shadow of my love is falling

On a place where the sun always shone.

 

Don't you know that's

where our hearts both belong?

'Cause I don't want to say goodbye.

Let the stars shine through.

No, I don't want to say goodbye

All I want to do is live with you.

 

Together our two hearts are strong

Don't you know that's where our hearts both belong?

 

'Cause I don't want to say goodbye

Let the stars shine through.

I don't want to say goodbye

All I want to do is live with you

All I want to do is live with you
