Come Dance with Me (1959)
(w) Sammy Cahn (m) Jimmy Van Heusen (I) Frank Sinatra. (CR) Diana Krall, Barry Manilow.

There are three new movies op’ning tonight,
a baseball game, a championship fight, a big band concert under the stars,
and a rodeo, midget racking cars.
For some gals and gents the above events hold their own vicarious charms,
but I’d rather go to a place I know where I can hold you in my arms.


Hey there, cutes, put on your dancin’ boots
And come dance with me
Come dance with me, what an evenin’ for some Terpsichore

Pretty face, I know a swingin’ place, come on dance with me
Romance with me on a crowded floor

And while the rhythm swings what lovely things I’ll be sayin’
‘Cause what is dancin’ but makin’ love set to music playin’?

When the band begins to leave the stand
And folks start to roam
As we waltz home cheek to cheek we’ll be
Come on, come on, come on, come on and dance with me
