"Dancing in the Moonlight" as written by and Philip Parris Lynott....
Well I passed you in the doorway
And 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
And my fathers going crazy
He say's I'm living in a trance

But I'm dancing in the moonlight
It's got me in its spotlight
It's alright
Dancing in the moonlight
On this long hot summer night

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

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

I'm Dancing in the moonlight
It's got me in its spotlight
It's alright
Dancing in the moonlight
On this long hot summer night

I'm walking home
The last bus is long gone
I'm walking home
The last bus is long gone

I'm Dancing in the moonlight
It's got me in its spotlight
It's alright
Dancing in the moonlight
On this long hot summer night

    General CommentGreat cover. Almost as good as the original. Almost, but a great tribute to the late great Phil Lynott
