intro Sh-bop sh-bop, sh-bop sh-bop, sh-bop sh-bop, oh-oh
   
1.
Your open arms, your open heart
  Dancing’s such a gentle art
  You're much too smooth. I’ve got a clue, so
  I Don’t Want to Dance With You
   
chorus No bump and turn, no spin and dip
  No empty words from tempting lips
  No sudden void when the music’s through
  No, I Don’t Want to Dance With You
   
turn Sh-bop sh-bop, sh-bop sh-bop, sh-bop sh-bop, oh-oh
   
2.
Your hands are strong, you hold me tight
  I close my eyes and feel the night
  It’s much too late, you’re right on cue, but
  I Don’t Want to Dance With You
   
chorus No dip and bump, no turn and spin
  Don’t push me out. Don’t pull me in
  It’s a careless dance you do
  Oh, I Don’t Want to Dance With You
   

turn

Sh-bop sh-bop, sh-bop sh-bop, sh-bop sh-bop, oh-oh
   
bridge All the right moves, all the right words
  You stood too tall: my voice went unheard
  Heart beats loud and right in time
  We do the steps; the dance unwinds
   
3.
The dance was slow. I’m out of breath
  The sudden stop; the little death
  You drop my hand and say “Adieu”
  I didn’t want to dance with you
   
chorus No spin and dip, no bump and turn
  No feeling that I’ll never learn
  Your hands, they lied. I know what’s true
  I didn’t want to dance
  I didn’t want to dance
  But I'm glad I got to dance with you
   
coda Sh-bop sh-bop, sh-bop sh-bop, sh-bop sh-bop, oh-oh
  Oooooooh

"I was angry at a man and wrote a song him, using details that applied to him. Much later, I realized I'd written a reply to the John Prine song, 'I Want to Dance With You.' " — San
