Songtekst

You can dance ev'ry dance with the guys
who give you the eye, let 'em hold you tight
You can smile ev'ry smile for the man
who held your hand 'neath the pale moonlight
But don't forget who's taking you home
and in whose arms you're gonna be
So darlin', (Save ) save the last dance for me

Oh, I know that the music is fine
like sparkling wine, go and have your fun
Laugh and sing but while we're apart
don't give your heart to anyone
But don't forget who's taking you home
and in whose arms you're gonna be
No, no, no darlin', (Save) save the last dance for me

Baby don't you know I love you so?
Can't you feel it when we touch?
I will never ever let you go
I love you oh so much
(Now listen)
You can dance, go and carry on
'till the night is gone and it's time to go
If he asks if you're all alone,
can he take you home,
you must tell him, "No"
'Cause don't forget who's taking you home
and in whose arm's you're gonna be
No, no, no darlin', (Save) save the last dance for me
Hmm, save the last dance for me
Hmm darlin', save the last dance for me
Hear me what I am saying,
save the last dance for me
Baby please, save the last...
