(Harry)
Maybe it's the way she walked
Straight into my heart and stole it
Through the door and past the guards
Just like she already owned it


(Zayn)
I said, "Can you give it back to me?"
She said, "Never in your wildest dreams!"

(All)
And we danced all night to
The best song ever
We knew every line
Now I can't remember
How it goes but I know
That I won't forget her
'Cos we danced all night to
The best song ever
I think it went oh, oh, oh
I think it went yeah, yeah, yeah
I think it goes... Woo!

(Liam)
Said her name was Georgia Rose
And her daddy was a dentist

(Harry)
Said I had a dirty mouth (I got a dirty mouth)
But she kissed me like she meant it

(Niall)
I said, "Can I take you home with me?"
She said, "Never in your wildest dreams!"

(All)
And we danced all night to
The best song ever
We knew every line
Now I can't remember

How it goes but I know
That I won't forget her
'Cos we danced all night to
The best song ever I think it went oh, oh, oh
I think it went yeah, yeah, yeah
I think it goes... Woo!

(Louis)
You know, I know, you know
I'll remember you
And I know, you know, I know
You'll remember me


(Zayn)
You know, I know, you know
I'll remember you
I know, you know,
I hope you'll remember
How we danced
How we danced (One, two, one, two, three,four)

(All)
How we danced all night (How we danced)
To the best song ever
We knew every line (We knew every line)
Now I can't remember
How it goes but I know
That I won't forget her
'Cos we danced all night to (We danced, we danced)
The best song ever (It's always something like this)
And we danced all night
To the best song ever
We knew every line
Now I can't remember
How it goes but I know
That I won't forget her (That I won't forget her)
'Cos we danced all night to
The best song ever (Best song ever)
I think it went oh, oh, oh
I think it went yeah, yeah, yeah
I think it goes... Woo!

(Zayn)
Best song ever
It was the best song ever
It was the best song ever
It was the best song ever
(Fades)

    I really like that song. It's catchy and stuff and great for the beginning of the album. None of the boys wrote it but their amazing voices (oh my god Louis) makes you forget that. I only wished that Louis would sing more; but maybe I just say that because he's got the best voice in my opinion. The music video is the best they ever made, I guess. I really hope that the Harry fixation get less in their next album (I heard it will come out this year, wow, they are so fast.)

    I used to think that this was a fun party song, but it's not. They're talking about us, how we call all of their songs the "best song ever" as soon as we hear them for the first time, and how we dance to most of them. Then when it gets to the "you know, I know, you know, I'll remember you" part, they're saying that even after we all grow up, have are own jobs and families, that they're gonna remember us, and they hope we will remember them, too, because without each other, both the boys and us wouldn't be where we are now. They are singing about all the memories we have made with them, not about a party.

    Besides the catchy pop-tune and lyrics to this song, there is quite an interesting underlying meaning. I think what the band is trying to say is that every generation looks for a new "best song ever", and really, to everyone; it doesn't really matter how it goes, it just matters that it's their song and that they have their memory of it and what they can remember doing while hearing it, reminding them of a better time. And it's something their next generation will forget, but they won't. Hence the lyrics "Now I can't remember how it goes but I know that I won't forget her" and "We danced all night to the best song ever". Which I think is quite cool, good job the all the writers or the song, and of course the band itself, it's one or those things only they can pull off.
