Drifters, The - Save The Last Dance For Me Lyrics

You can dance
Every dance with the guy
Who gave you the eye
Let him hold you tight

You can smile
Every 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, mmm

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
So darlin'
Save the last dance for me, mmm

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 arms you're gonna be
So darlin'
Save the last dance for me

'Cause don't forget who's taking you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
So darlin'
Save the last dance for me, mmm

Save the last dance for me, mmm
Save the last dance for me

  65. Tuco Cat

    Brian Kenny and Justin Taylor

  66. John Pace

    It's funny how the arrangement sort of sounded south of the border Mexican. As opposed the soul and horns of Motown of that era. Not complaining! It's a fantastic number.

  67. Adam Duddy

    Adam Edenburgh

  68. Irma P.

    Großartig! Dieser Schwung! Aber die anderen Versionen (Elvis, Io Robic 'Mit 17...' ) sind auch enorm schön.

  72. Grant McIntosh

    This one was about 1960, wasn't it?

  73. Nanjimoy Al Kursi

    Iam 77 and just love the drifters, but isen,t that charlie. Wilson sibging lead? Because thats not him on the picture.

    Rob Arnum

    Actually it is Ben E King! His last lead vocal with the drifters! He'd already left the group for a solo career but they needed a lead singer for this recording session and had to coax him back to do this! He gave a first rate job of it for them as you can tell! Just thought I'd tell you.

  74. Lucyy 213

    I've known this song for a long time before but recently came back after watching QAF💙 someone with me?

  75. Alan McEwen

    I'm 70, and still think my generation had the best music.
