    Default For the Leonard Cohen fans - very rare and old song

    To have heard this song, one has to be not only A Big Leonard Cohen Fan but one of the following:
    • A Big Leonard Cohen Fan Who Went To The Right Concerts In The Late ’70s
    • A Big Leonard Cohen Fan Who Bought His 45s In Central Europe
    • A Big Leonard Cohen Fan Who Stumbled Across A Crappy MP3 Of Do I Have To Dance All Night?
    This song has been and continues to be available only as a seven inch single, recorded at a 1976 concert in Holland and pressed in Paris for sale in Central European countries

    Lyrics

    Do I Have To Dance All Night
    I’m Forty-One, the moon is full,
    you make love very well.
    You touch me like I touch myself,
    I like you Mademoiselle.
    You’re so fresh and you’re so new,
    I do enjoy you, Miss.
    There’s nothing I would rather do
    than move around just like this
    But do I have to dance all night?
    But do I have to dance all night?
    Ooh tell me, Bird of Paradise,
    do I have to dance all night?
    You never really have to tell me what
    you really think of me - alright.
    Let’s say I’m doing fine,
    but do I have to dance all night?
    Do I have to dance all night? …
    I learned this step a while ago.
    I had to practice it while everybody slept.
    I waited half my life for you, you know,
    I didn’t even think that you’d accept.
    And here you are before me in the flesh
    saying “Yes, yes, yes!”
    But do I have to dance all night? …
    I learned this step a while ago …
    But do I have to dance all night? …

    Thanks a lot, Seeker! What a nice surprise to stumble upon a "new" Leonard song.
    I quite like it; reminds me a little bit of "Lover Lover Lover".

    Danke! Wonderful lyrics.
    I really love the old "pre-future" Cohen-era. It's great that some Morrissey-fans have good taste when it comes to other music stiles.

    "I learned this step a while ago.
    I had to practice it while everybody slept.
    I waited half my life for you, you know,
    I didn’t even think that you’d accept.
    And here you are before me in the flesh
    saying 'Yes, yes, yes!'"
