Could I Ask You Not To Dance
   ------Clay Walker

Now I really should have known that you'd show up sooner or later
Knowin' every Friday night they always have your favorite band
Though someone new is with you at our table
Would it be too much for me to ask, to ask you not to dance

Not tonight, not until, my heart's had some time to heal
Not right now, till I'm gone, I won't be here very long
And when I leave, you can stay and just dance the night away
But till then, do you think that there's a chance
I could ask you not to dance

And I saw you slip the leader of the band a piece of paper
I knew what song they'd play before he took it from your hand
I was wonderin' if you'd do me one last favor
And if the answer's no I'll understand, could I ask you not to dance

Not tonight, not until, my heart's had some time to heal
Not right now, till I'm gone, I won't be here all that long
And when I leave, you can stay and just dance the night away
But till then, do you think that there's a chance
I could ask you not to dance

Not tonight, not until, my heart's had some time to heal
Not right now, till I'm gone, I won't be here all that long
And when I leave, you can stay and just dance the night away
But till then, do you think that there's a chance
I could ask you not to dance
