Standard (EADGBE)


I'd like to tell you a story,

About what one dance can do, one dance can do,

One dance can do, a listen up;

Verse 1

After one dance on the floor,

She came back, wanting for more, for more.

And I don't know what it is, that I've got,

But she whispered it was so nice, so nice.

Chorus 1

But her man is sitting across the way,

And he can hear the things I'd say.

Now he watches from the corner of his eyes,

So a move like this would be so unwise.

Ooh, ooh he's standing in my way,

Standing in my way, hey, yeah, yeah.

Verse 2

You could see she was more than ready,

To make the move with me, anytime.

Not even thinking of the consequences, now, now, now.

Chorus 2

So I had to think quickly,

'Cos her man; his face was looking, oh so mean;

As if anytime, he could create a scene.

So, gently I pushed her away,

Ooh, ooh, he wants to spoil the play.

He's standing in my way, hey, yeah,

He's standing in my way, yeah.

Woo-ooh, ooh.


Verse 3

Now I understand how he feels,

But I wish he'd give me a little room.

I know he's got himself a raw deal,

But I'd like to leave with this lady, soon.

Chorus 3

I didn't mean to be so unkind,

I had move into the one, who was looking fine.

Big Spender, he was; had to have his own way,

I thought he'd leave, but he stayed,

Oh, ooh, still standing in my way...

Standing in my way yeah, yeah,

Standing in my way, hey.

Ooh, ooh, standing in my way, hey,

Standing, standing in my way, hey.

That's what one dance can do, (standing in my way),

One dance can do, (standing in my way, hey).

Standing in my way.

Standing in my way.

Standing in my way.
