SAVE THE LAST DANCE FOR ME MARY-ANNE ©mar 18th 2009

I was cruising cross the Great Australian Bight
Playing piano for the punters every night
Not a bad job for a geezer of my age
I've heard that other men cant remember when
Someone turned their page

I was playing one night in the disco
When this girl I'd always treated like my little sister
Danced around like I never saw before
I was mesmerised by her eyes
As she danced round the floor

So save the last dance for me Mary-Anne
I'm trying to do the best that I can
But believe me I'm only a man
So save the last dance for me Mary-Anne

She came up and danced across the stage
I was trying not to notice - trying to act my age
That girl was young enough to be my daughter
I said 'come on Dave - you better behave
Guess you oughta'

So save the last dance for me Mary-Anne
I'm trying to do the best that I can
But believe me I'm only a man
So save the last dance for me Mary-Anne

Now I know they say at my time of life
Comes a change of plan that can get you into strife
If you dont believe me just ask my ex-wife
Call it what you will call it menopause
But I would love it if Mary-Anne
Would get her claws in me

So save the last dance for me Mary-Anne
I'm trying to do the best that I can
But believe me I'm only a man
So save the last dance for me Mary-Anne

So save the last dance for me Mary-Anne
I'm trying to do the best that I can
But believe me I'm only a man
So save the last dance for me Mary-Anne
So save the last dance for me Mary-Anne
