"The Last Time" as written by and Thomas Decarlo/burton Callaway....
Da da da da da
All work an no play
That's the way it is, aint it
There's rhythm deep inside of you
And you must get reacquainted

When was the last time
You danced
When was the last time
You danced
Well come rock with me baby
Dance with me darling
Step with me sweetheart
The world is watching

Under an endless sky
Wish I could fly away forever
An ever
And the poetry is so pure
When we are on the floor together
It's been a long time

When was the last time
You danced
When was the last time
You danced
Well come rock with me baby
Dance with me darling
Step with me sweetheart
The world is watching

Ooh
Ooh
Mmm
Wooh
Ooh!
Don't deny me any further
Mmm mmm
Let me have my way
Mmm mmm
Ooh come closer, yeah
Let's dance the night away

Come rock with me baby
Dance with me darling
Step with me sweetheart
The world is watching
Woah
Ooh
Ah huh baby
Hee hee

    General CommentI think this song is about a person who rarely takes time off from life to enjoy themselves, and the singer comes along and is trying to make them forget.

    I agree with worsethansex, it does sound somewhat vampiric.

    General CommentI think this song sounds vampiric because it has a certain waltz like quality, which we attribute normally with that same time period.

    Besides that I think this one is pretty self explanatory. It's a love song, and a good way to finish off an awesome album.

    Alliteration needs to be used way more often.

    General CommentSo simple, so perfect, so powerful.

    When was the last time you danced? I mean flat out, who cares who sees, surrendered your whole being to the music and DANCED?

    Do it. Again and often.
