"First Dance" as written by Usher Raymond, Ryon Lovett, Alexander Parhm Jr, Jesse Wilson and Dwight Reynolds....
It's your chance take her hand to the floor (when I walk to the floor)
Girl if you see something you like then let him know
'Cause you only got one chance, for your first dance
Yeah you never forget your first dance
So take advantage of the slow dance

When I close my eyes I see me and you at the prom,
We've both been waiting so long
For this day to come
Now that it's here lets make it special
I can't deny
There's so many thoughts in my mind
The DJ's playing my favorite song ain't no chaperon's this could be
The night of our dreams

Only if you give, give the first dance to me
Girl I promise I'll be gentle, I know we gotta do it slowly
If you give, give your first dance to me
I'm gonna cherish every moment,
It only happens once, once in a life time

I couldn't ask for more, we're rockin' back and forth
Under the disco ball, we're the only ones on the floor
(I can't deny), so many thoughts in my mind
The DJ's playing my favorite song, now we're all alone, here's the opportunity

Only if you give, give the first dance to me
Girl I promise I'll be gentle, I know we gotta do it slowly
If you give, give your first dance to me
I'm gonna cherish every moment,
It only happens once, once in a lifetime

Everybody says that we look cute together lets make this a night
The two us remember, no teachers around to see us dancin' close
I'm tellin' you our parents will never know
Before the lights go up and the music turns off
Now's the perfect time for me to taste your lip gloss,
Your glass slippers in my hand right here, we'll
Make it before the clock strikes nine

If you just give, give the first dance to me
Girl I promise I'll be gentle but we gotta do it slowly
If you give, give the first dance to me we'll cherish every moment,
It only happens once, once in a lifetime

Girl if you see something you like then let him know
'Cause you only got one chance for your first dance
Yeah you never forget your first dance
So take advantage of the slow dance

If you give, give the first dance to me
I'm gonna cherish every moment
'Cause it only happens, once in a lifetime

    General Commentyeah this sounds alot like a metaphor for taking someones virginity.
    so what hes 16. thats when alot of people loose it nowadays.
    and why whould you write a song making such a big deal with dancing with a girl? im pretty sure hes danced with many girls before.

    he's rightin about havin his first dance wiv his girlfriend and he's really been lookin forward to it.
    so why do you have to assume that he's talkin about sex and he's 15 most 15 year old boys have actually done it

    My Opinionwell, I really love this song. at first, I thought it's about first dance on the prom etc, but when I listened it carefully I relized that it's (probably) about loosing virginity.
    ''Girl, I promise I'll be gentle, I know we gotta do it slowly''
    ''It happens once, once in lifetime''
    Now I think it really is about the first sex. lol btw sorry about my english, It's not my mother tounge..

    General CommentSounds like a double meaning for a song. The lyrics clearly state they are going to prom, and most people assume prom is where people lose their virginity -- American Pie movies, etc -- because they are going to college soon, and want to "experience things." Could be special moments, too, but I believe it's about losing your virginity with a person you held close.
