about

Rajdulari had a conversation with some of her steppin lady friends, and they were musing over whether a woman should ask a man to dance at a steppers set. That conversation prompted this song...

lyrics

VERSE

Saw him from across the room, when he walked in the door
All the ladies stopped and stared, as he crossed the floor.

His walk was mean
He had a real cool stride
Even I did a double take as he passed me by
Wonder what it's gonna take to have him come my way
Should I just be bold, or let him make his play?
The set is almost over, I don't have the time to waste
I think I'm gonna walk on over, but I don't even know his name....

CHORUS

Would I, could I, should I? (R: But I don't even know his name)
What if he doesn't ask me? (R:That would be a doggone shame)
Next time he comes my way, (R: I'll just get the nerve to say)
Hey!!! Dance with me, baby. Dance with me baby.

VERSE

He smiled and took my hand in mine, pulled me on to the floor....
He dipped me way down low.....(Damn he smells so gooooood)...
I forgot where I was, lost all track of time
By the end of the song, I was calling him "mine"
He grabbed my waist, he whispered somethin soft in my ear
“Baby you smell so good” he knew just what I wanted to hear

B SECTION

He spun me out and in, turned me round and round
He laid his hand on my shoulder
Dipped me down to the ground
I felt so heady,
I had to catch my breath
Try to hide my emotions
As I matched him step for step
But by the time it was over, he was nowhere to be found
I had to find my stranger, but I didn't even ask his name...

CHORUS

Would I, could I, should I? (R: But I don't even know his name)
What if he doesn't ask me? (R: That would be a doggone shame)
Next time he comes my way, (R: I'll just get the nerve to say)
Hey!!! Dance with me, baby. Dance with me baby. (ad libs)
