Barbara Lyr Add: Wallflower Waltz (20) Lyr/Tune Add: WALLFLOWER WALTZ (Sharyn Dimmick)^^ 25 Oct 00

I see PJ posted this earlier; here's the lyrics from Sharyn and the tune to match. Anyone that would like a midi shipped, send me a PM with your email.

(Sharyn Dimmick)
copyright 1995

Nodding my head, tapping my toe
I hold down a spot on Wallflower Row.
I learned to walk such a long time ago —
Teach me to waltz.

Sometimes I'm shy, sometimes I'm slow.
I fall out of step, I step on your toe.
I'm wanting to waltz more than you know —
Teach me to waltz.

Teach me to walk on air —
You know I'm halfway there.
Dance with me if you dare,
Teach me to waltz.

Teach me to waltz real slow;
Teach me to just let go,
Teach me the things you know,
Teach me to waltz.

When I am grey and eighty-two
Regretting the things I never did do,
I'll be able to say I went dancing with you;
Teach me to waltz.

Put down your fiddle, put down your bow.
I am still here on Wallflower Row.
We'll make it sweet, we'll make it slow,
Teach me to waltz.
(Teach me to waltz)
