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.

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.

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.

'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.

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
