Mary Chapin Carpenter (born February 21, 1958) is an American folk and country music singer, songwriter and musician. Carpenter spent several years singing in Washington, D.C. clubs before signing in the late 1980s with Columbia Records, who marketed her as a country singer. Carpenter's first album, 1987's Hometown Girl, did not produce any singles, although 1989's State of the Heart and 1990's Shooting Straight in the Dark each produced four Top 20 hits on the Billboard country singles charts. more »

Fetch me a glass; let's fill it with fine romance 
Pour slow the wine, then let your eyes kiss mine 
You, you with the charming eyes 
Lately I've found myself truly beguiled 
If this is a waltz, then I can't refuse 
To dance with a man like you

She must be fine; she must be enchantingly kind 
And she must be fair and never reveal that she cares 
Then, then when you've got her heart 
Spin her around till she begs you to stop 
But this is a waltz and no lady refuses 
To dance with a man like you

And if she inquires the meaning of love 
You'll silence her words with a glance 
And if she desires to wonder and pause 
You'll charmingly ask her to dance

You promised me that you would forever be kind 
And if meant to be, our love would find comfort in time 
Now, now that you feel no more 
How could I follow you out to the floor?
And now it's the waltz, but I have to refuse 
To dance with a man like you 
But this is your waltz and you'll find someone new 
To dance with a man like you
