Story

We were in a beautiful house in Ireland, overlooking Clew Bay, and Maggie was in one half of the house. I was in the other. We'd just finished a very loud 'discussion.' That's when I wrote this song. We've been together almost 40 years, and I'm madly in love with her. But from the beginning she'd say, "Why did you back up that way? That doesn't make any sense. Why didn't you back up this way?" It's occurred to me, now that I've written the song, that if you've been together 40 minutes you know what the song means.

Lyrics

Every time you dance with me

I step on your toes

Why you even dance I don't know

Every time you talk to me

I say something wrong

It's best if we don't talk too long

 

CHORUS:

'Cause you're the only one I've ever wanted

And I love the very air that you breath

But you say black when I say white

You turn left if I turn right

And I couldn't live without you

Here with me

 

Every time you dance with me

I step on your toes

Why you even dance I don't know

 

The fact that you're in love with me

Sometimes makes you mad

And I make it worse because it makes me glad

CHORUS:

Every time you dance with me I step on your toes

How we found each other I don't know

Every time you dance with me I step on your toes

How we stay together I don't know

'Cause every time you dance with me

I step on your toes
