Song title: Save the last dance for me

(Pomus, Shuman) by The Drifters (Atlantic 2071), 1960

Save the last dance for me

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 memmmm

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 mmmm

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

Music interlude

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

Save the last dance for me mmmm

Save the last dance for me
