Sway Lyrics:

When Marimba Rhythms start to play
Dance with me, make me sway
Like a lazy ocean hugs the shore
Hold me close, sway me more

Like a flower bending in the breeze
Bend with me, sway with ease
When we dance you have a way with me
Stay with me, sway with me

Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have the magic technique
When we sway I grow weak

I can hear the sounds of violins
Long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now

Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have the magic technique
When we sway I go weak

I can hear the sounds of violins
Long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now
You know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now


 

Dean Martin was the coolest singer ever;  ever so relaxed singing with cigarette or drink in hand. Here he is lying down singing My Rifle, My Pony, and Me in the movie Rio Bravo, with Ricky Nelson & Walter Brennan:
 


 

The coolness of Dean Martin seamlessly crosses generations; young guys heading for a weekend in Las Vegas…..He didn't like to rehearse, his friends said, because he knew he would do just fine without it…..
