Don't Look Now

Don't look now
Don't you dare
I'm not decent
Go sit over there
Would you rather I was draped
in priceless fur
As there's nothing else to wear

Don't look now
I saw you shoot that glance
I said "Don't peek
At the sway of my dance
And the length of my limb
And the blush of my cheek"

Okay, look at me now
What do you see?
I see you looking at me looking
at how you're looking at me

I know what you're thinking
I can read your mind
Oh I promise, I'll be good
this time

Now I wonder what you see
Will you be thinking of me
Later on, when you're alone
Are you ever alone and longing

I'll sit here
Silent and still
See if I am breaking your will
I see you looking at me looking
at how you're looking at me

Oh, don't look at me now...
