Well, she was just seventeen,
And you know what I mean,
And the way she looked was way beyond compare.
So how could I dance with another
And I saw her standing there.
Well she looked at me, and I, I could see
That before too long I'd fall in love with her.
She wouldn't dance with another
Since I saw her standin' there.
Well, my heart went boom
When I crossed that room
And I held her hand in mine.
Well, we danced through the night,
And we held each other tight,
And before too long, I fell in love with her.
Now I'll never dance with another
Since I saw her standing there
