DO YOU WANT TO DANCE (Tom Paxton)

I find myself a fool,
I laugh too loudly, speak inanely
I strive to seem so cool
So self-processed, I fail mainly.

All the hours I spend
Examining my poor reflection
To a childish (man?)
A simple glance in my direction

But what if you should see me
As the hopeless mess I am
Afraid of even trying
As I must confess I am
Afraid of your reaction
If I dare to take a chance
It's the agony of asking
Do you, do you want to dance.

To my friends I (pose?)
I'm no lover, may God strike me
What I need the most
Is just a hint that you might like me

But what if you should see me
As the hopeless mess I am
Afraid of even trying
As I must confess I am
Afraid of your reaction
If I dare to take a chance
It's the agony of asking
Do you, do you want to dance.

Couple of words I couldn't be sure of.
