Mark Knopfler - Two Young Lovers

Dire Straits


(Mark Knopfler)

It was the last day of summer

It was the first of a new romance

He walked into her on the corner

She said 'I don't dance'

He said 'Baby let me teach you'

She said 'O.K., when?'

He said 'How can I reach you baby

I'd really like to see you again'

He picked her up on a Friday night

He took her for a bite to eat

His heart was beating and his hands were shaking

She thought he was sweet

And he stood on her shoes on the dance floor

Well, they were doing it cheek to cheek

And he walked her home and he kissed her

He was walking on air all week

Well, they couldn't stand to be apart

They couldn't leave one another alone

Her mama used to say 'It's getting late sweetheart

It's time that boy went home'

And upstairs papa kissed mama

And she gave him a sweet caress

He said 'Here's to the two young lovers

Let's wish 'em every happiness'

It was the last day of summer

They came walking home hand in hand

They went and told her mama

They showed her the wedding band

Mama cried and poured the wine

Papa just said God Bless

Now, here's to the two young lovers

Let's wish 'em every happiness
