Save The Last Dance For Me    (1960)

You can dance
Every dance with the one who gives you the eye
Let him hold you tight
You can smile
Every smile for the one who'd like to treat you right
'neath the pale moonlight
But don't forget who's takin' you home
And in who's arms you're gonna be
Oh, darlin' save the last dance for me

Oh I know
That the music's fine like sparklin' wine
Go and have your fun
Dance and sing
But while we're apart, don't give your heart to anyone
And don't forget who's takin' you home
And in who's arms you're gonna be
Oh, 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 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

And don't forget who's takin' you home
And in who's arms you're gonna be
Oh, darlin', save the last dance for me
And don't forget who's takin' you home
And in who's arms you're gonna be
Oh, darlin', save the last dance for me
