(Tony Martin/Reese Wilson/Roger Springer)

Nervous and scared I asked you for a dance
All of my buddies said "Yeah, right, fat chance
She'll never go for a good ol' boy like you"
But somewhere between my stutter and stammer
Before I could ask you'd already answered
And to my surprise you said that you'd love to

And they all laughed when I stepped on your toes
But they got quiet when you moved in close
They lost their smiles
When they knew they lost their chance
My two left feet couldn't do a right thing
I looked like a fool but I felt like a king
Oh, they got a laugh
But look who got the last dance

Nervous and scared after sayin' "I Do"
All of my buddies made fun of the new groom
As they stood in line waiting to kiss the bride
They kept us apart
Dancing with you all night long
But when the band started into their last song
I was the one standing by your side

And they all laughed when I stepped on your toes
But they got quiet when you moved in close
They lost their smiles
When they knew they lost their chance
My two left feet couldn't do a right thing
I looked like a fool but I felt like a king
Oh, they got a laugh
But look who got the last dance
Oh, they got a laugh
But look who got the last dance
