No Can Do

She was a beauty on a bar stool
With her back to some young fool
She'd been left by another
A story older than time
This kid was struttin' like a peacock
Big man tryin' to make small talk
That lady left without a lover
It just seemed like a crime
He told her

I can't allow you to hold on to
Heartache that will just haunt you
No can do
If you got the blues
Put your heart next to mine

Now this kid was crashin' and burnin'
But he kept on pitchin' his sermon
How they'd make a Hell of a combo
If she'd just give him a chance
He said maybe I ain't much of a dancer
But I won't take no for an answer
I believe they're doing the Mambo
C'mon baby let's dance



Well that beauty on a bar stool
Started falling for the young fool
Suddenly her long lost lover
Was the last thing on her mind
Sayin' I ain't holdin' back no more
She jumped down and dragged him to the dance floor
One thing led to another
And it all started with that line


No can do
If you got the blues
Put your heart next to mine
