After the prom, as the lights fade. . .

THE LAST CHANCE DANCE

They’re taking down the bunting

It’s too late to do some hunting

Should have mulled it in advance

‘Cause it’s the last chance dance

 

They have shut off the PA

Taken all the punch bowls away

Said goodbye to the DJ

Yes it’s the last chance dance

 

If you hoped to snag a sweetie

With a kiss or an entreaty

Now you hardly stand a chance

At this, the last chance dance

 

They are locking the gym doors

Sweeping crepe scraps from the floors

Wave goodbye, cheri amours

It’s too late for an advance

Wave goodbye, cheri amours

To this, the last chance dance

 

Your cold cream may have dried

And Father Time have lied

But there’s still a shred of chance

If you act and you act now

Yes there’s still a shred of chance

At the last chance dance

 

If you listen very closely,

You will hear faint strains of music

You will hear faint strains of music

And you still may have a chance

If you listen very closely

You will hear faint strains of music

So take hope and then take action

If you value a romance

 

Yes move fast and do it quickly

Don’t be shy, don’t be prickly

Reach out now and choose a partner

This may be your final chance

Reach out now and choose a partner

At the last chance dance
