Can I Have This Dance? is one of the singles from High School Musical 3: Senior Year and the fourth song heard in the movie and on the soundtrack. The song is sung in the movie by Troy Bolton & Gabriella Montez.



High School Musical 3: Senior Year

This song takes place in the rooftop garden from the first movie. In the movie, the song explains that Troy & Gabriella are trying to spend each moment together before they graduate. Soon after the dance and twirl around the garden, the sprinklers turn on and they both spin around while they get soaking wet. This song is a Hollywood-inspired musical number.

The second time this song is heard is when Troy drives all the way to Stanford thus missing the prom just to see Gabriella (Can I Have This Dance? (Reprise)). He says he isn't ready to say goodbye just yet so the 2 of them have their own prom at Stanford. They dance around the university and end it with a kiss. This convinces Gabriella to return to East High.

Lyrics

Gabriella:
Take my hand
Take a breath
Pull me close
And take one step

Keep your eyes
Locked on mine
And let the music
Be your guide

Troy (Gabriella):
Won't you promise me
(Now won't you promise me)
(That you'll never forget)
We'll keep dancing
(To keep dancing)

Troy and Gabriella:
Wherever we go next

It's like catching lightning
The chances of finding
Someone like you

It's one in a million
The chances of feeling
The way we do

And with every step together
We just keep on getting better

Gabriella (Troy):
So can I have this dance? (Can I have this dance?)

Troy and Gabriella:
Can I have this dance?

Troy:
Take my hand
I'll take the lead
And every turn
Will be safe with me

Don't be afraid
Afraid to fall
You know I'll catch you
Through it all

Troy (Gabriella):
And you can't keep us apart
(Even a thousand miles)
(Can't keep us apart)
'Cause my heart is
('Cause my heart is)

Troy and Gabriella:
Wherever you are

It's like catching lightning
The chances of finding
Someone like you

It's one in a million
The chances of feeling
The way we do

And with every step together
We just keep on getting better

Gabriella (Troy):
So can I have this dance? (Can I have this dance?)

Troy and Gabriella:
Can I have this dance? (Gabriella: Ohh)

Gabriella:
No mountain's too high
And no

Troy and Gabriella:
Ocean's too wide
'Cause together or not
Our dance won't stop

Gabriella:
Let it rain

Troy and Gabriella:
Let it pour
What we have
Is worth fighting for
You know I believe
That we were meant to be (Gabriella: Yeah!)

Troy and Gabriella:
It's like catching lightning
The chances of finding
Someone like

Troy:
You (Gabriella: like you)

Troy and Gabriella:
It's one in a million
The chances of feeling
The way

Troy:
We do (Gabriella: way we do)

Troy and Gabriella:
And with every step together
We just keep on getting better

Gabriella (Troy):
So can I have this dance? (Can I have this dance?)

Troy and Gabriella:
Can I have this dance?

Gabriella:
Can I have

Troy and Gabriella:
This dance?
Can I have this dance?
