SAVE THE LAST DANCE FOR ME
(Doc Pomus - Mort Shuman)
THE DRIFTERS (Atlantic 2071, 1960)

You can dance ev'ry dance with the guy who gives you the eye, let him 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 the last dance for me

Oh, I know that the music's 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
So darlin', 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-never let you go
I love you oh-so much

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
So darlin save the last dance for me

'Cause don't forget who's taking you home and in whose arm's your gonna be
So darlin save the last dance for me
Ooh, save the last dance for me
Aah, save the last dance for me
Aah, save the last dance for me
