"Every song I have translated is well translated, the one who works on the very difficult songs with me is Dee Shipman. I know her telephone number by heart, and her fax. It goes back and forth - 'No! I don't like this word!' And she comes back and says 'Because you don't understand English!' So I have to convince her and she has to convince me, and the rapport is fantastic." 

- Charles Aznavour

Dance With You
(Dee Shipman / Charles Aznavour)

How dare he take my place! 
Must she torment me with their grace 
Am I just half a man 
Is that why she wonít dance with me? 

(But) In my mind Iím tall 
And she comes close to me, and all 
That I can hear is her voice saying 
ĒWill you dance with me ? ď

We confidently glide 
And move as one across the floor 
And no-one needs to hide 
Their pity for me any more 
And I dance as Iíve never danced before 

We naturally keep time 
Our steps match perfectly, and Iím 
A normal man because Suzanne has 
Asked to dance with me!

So take that stranger in 
Your arms, but while youíre holding him 
Iíll be the one who feels your body 
As you dance with him 

And dancing cheek to cheek 
I play my fingers through your hair 
And we donít need to speak 
A flameís in every glance we share 

But I am sitting here while you dance there 

So can it ever be 
Youíll look beyond what you can see 
And take a chance 
Or someone who 
Would die to dance,
To danceÖÖ 
With you?
