You can dance every dance with the guy
Who gives 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 taking you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
So darlin', save the last dance for me, hmm

Oh, I know that the music's fine (oh, I know, yes I know)
Like sparkling wine go and have your fun
 Laugh and sing but while we're apart 
Don't give your heart to anyone 

But don't forget who's taking you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
So darlin', save the last dance for me, hmm

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

You can dance, go and carry on
'Till the night is gone and it's time to go
If he asks, if you're all alone 
Can he take you home, you must tell him, no

'Cause don't forget who's taking you home
And in whose arm's you're gonna be
So darlin', save the last dance for me

'Cause don't forget who's taking you home
And in whose arm's you're gonna be
So darlin', save the last dance for me, hmm

Save the last dance for me, hmm, hmm
Save the last dance for me, hmmm
Save
