Lyrics[]

A little voice, keeps talking to me
From (a) way down deep inside
What does this voice, keep saying to me
It says: "pass this affair and pass it wide"

You may be a puzzle, but I like the way the parts fit
Still that little voice says: "Go get your track shoes -put them on and get"

We could go the distance
And find us romance
I like your persistence
Your style and your stance
There's only one problem - the tiniest problem
I like to lead when I dance

Your eyes do the speaking
They talk with each glance
My will-power's creaking
I might take a (the) chance
And though you're the charmer - who could bend my armor
I like to lead when I dance

I like to steer the car - whenever I drive
And hold the door ajar - when we arrive

So if it's decided - that this is romance

My sweet, I'll repeat - in advance
I like to lead when I dance

(I like to lead when I dance)

When Adam bit the fruit - as fashions were then
He got that fig-leaf suit - for which Amen

So if it's decided - I'm wearing the pants
Then Eve, I'd say we've - got romance

I like to lead - I set the speed
I like to lead when I dance
(When I dance, when I dance, when I dance)
