      About "I Wish You Could Have Seen Her Dance"

      Lyrics for T Bone Burnett - "I Wish You Could Have Seen Her Dance"

      She wore a low-cut black satin dress
      Slit up the front and down the back
      She wore black high-heeled shoes
      With laces that went up her ankles

      She wore black velvet gloves
      With rhinestone bracelets around them
      She had long blond hair, she had long blond hair
      (Long blond hair, long blond hair)

      And she sat on the jukebox with one leg propped up
      And a crowd of boys gathered 'round her
      And one tried to kiss her
      But she turned her face

      And I wish you could have seen her dance
      The way she soared across the floor
      I wish you could have seen her dance
      She did a pirouette and then a Kung Fu step

      I wish you could have seen her dance
      The way she threw her hair through the air
      And I wish you could have seen her dance

      I asked her, "Do you come here often?"
      She said, "I've never been here before"
      I asked her, her name and she said
      "They call me Kim Boston in England"

      "And Kim English in Boston and also in Dallas"
      I said, "How did you like Dallas"
      She said, "It was just like Ireland
      Except the wells don't look like wishing wells"

      And I wish you could have seen her dance
      The way she soared across the floor
      I wish you could have seen her dance
      She did the Flavo and the Tango and the Flamenco

      I wish you could have seen her dance
      The way she threw her hair through the air
      And I wish you could have seen her dance

      I asked, "Are you an actress"
      She said, "No, but do you think I'm good enough"
      She said, "You look like you belong on
      Monty Python, Eric Idle"

      She said, "Do you wanna know what I do for work"
      I said, "Sure"
      (She had long blond hair)
      I said, "Alright"
      (She had long blond hair)

      She said, "I'm a maid and a dancer
      I've danced for three rock bands
      And one of the bands
      Even wrote a song about me"

      And I wish you could have seen her dance
      I wish you could have seen her dance
      I wish you could have seen her, wish you could have seen her
      Wish you could have seen her dance
