Have you ever watched the ballroom dancers? Do you wish you could dance like them? 

Artist Fernado Botero

I could dance all night!

This song from is from the musical My Fair Lady, with music written by Frederick Loewe and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner, published in 1956. The song is sung by the musical’s heroine, Eliza Doolittle, expressing her exhilaration and excitement after an impromptu dance with her tutor, Henry Higgins – in the small hours of the morning. In a counterpoint during the second of 3 rounds, two maids and the housekeeper, Mrs. Pearce, urge Eliza to go to bed, but she ignores them.

It was first performed by Julie Andrews in the original Broadway production of My Fair Lady. In the 1964 film adaptation of the musical, the song was sung by Marni Nixon, dubbing the singing voice of Audrey Hepburn, who played Eliza Doolittle.[2] In 2004, Nixon’s version finished at #17 on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Songs survey of top tunes in American cinema.

Hit versions of the song were recorded by Sylvia SymsDinah ShoreAngélica MaríaBen E. King as an ATCO single, Frank SinatraRosemary Clooney, and Jamie Cullum. It was featured in The Birdcage sung by Nathan LaneHank AzariaGene HackmanRobin Williams and Dianne Wiest.
