"Save the Last Dance for Me" as written by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman....
You can dance
Every dance with the guy
Who gave you the eye
Let him hold you tight

You can smile
Every smile for the man
Who held your hand
'Neath the pale moonlight

But don't forget who's takin' you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
Oh, darlin'
Save the last dance for me

Yes, I know that the music's fine
Like sparklin' wine
Go and have your fun

Laugh and sing
But while we're apart
Don't give your heart to anyone

And don't forget who's takin' you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
Oh darlin'
Save the last dance for me

Baby, don't you know I love you so
Can't you feel it when we touch
And I'll never, never let you go
I need you, oh so much

You can dance
Go on, carry on
Till the night is gone
And it's time to go

And if he asks
If you're all alone
And can he take you home
You must tell him no

And don't forget who's takin' you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
Darlin' save the last dance for me
Oh, darlin' save the last dance for me
