When I passed you in the doorway
You took me with a glance
I should have took that last bus home
But I asked you for a dance

Now we go steady to the pictures
I always get chocolate stains on my pants
My father he's going crazy
Say's I'm living in a trance

But I'm dancing in the moonlight
It's caught me in it's spotlight
It's alright, alright
Dancing in the moonlight
On the long hot summer night

It's three o'clock in the morning
And I'm on the streets again
I disobeyed another warning
I should have been in by ten

Now I won't get out until sunday
I'll have to say I stayed with friends
But it's a habit worth forming
If it means to justify the end

    First, it is a very cool song. I love Thin Lizzy.I think its about him meeting some girl and then he starts dancing with her. He dances to long when he was meant to get back for ten. His parents wont let him out till Sunday if he tells his parents what happened. So he will have to say he stayed with friends.
