Save The Last Dance    The Drifters(#1 in 1960), The DeFranco Family (#18 in 1974)

You can dance, Ev'ry dance with the guy
Who gave you the eye, Let him hold you tight.
You can smile, Ev'ry smile for the man
Who holds 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 is fine
Like a sparkling wine, Go and have your fun.
Laugh and sing, but while we're apart
Don't give your heart to anyone.
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.
Save the last dance for me, Darlin' - save the last dance for me
Hear what I say now, Darlin' - save the last dance for me
