“Save the last dance for me”

Mais uma do álbum só de covers de clássicos americanos, o “What a Wonderfull World” (1997). Dessa vez faremos a comparação de “Save the last dance for me” que foi gravada pela primeira vez em 1960, pelo The Drifters.

Lançado um ano antes de sua morte, esse disco é um acerto de contas pessoal, só com músicas que escutou e viu ao vivo no tempo que esteve nos EUA. Clássicos do final da década de 50 e começo de 60 que Tim sempre quis gravar: “Estou fazendo agora o que eu gostaria de ter feito nas gravadoras, mas nunca tive oportunidade”, desabafou na época do lançamento.

Letra:
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 moon light
But don’t forget who’s takin’ you home
And in whose arms you’re gonna be
So darling… save the last dance for me

Oh… I know that the musics 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
So darling… save the last dance for me

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 walk you home, you must tell him no
‘cause don’t forget who’s taking you home
And in whose arms you’re gonna be
So darling… save the last dance for me

Oh… I know that the musics 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
So darling… save the last dance for me

So don’t forget who’s taking you home
Or in who’s arms you’re gonna be
So darling save the last dance for me
Oh baby, won’t you save the last dance for me
Oh, you make a promise
That you’ll save the last dance for me
Save the last dance
The very last dance
For me
