The Very First Dance 
    (Difford/Tilbrook) 
       
      I had finally beat my nerve 
      To watch her on the stage 
      Removing all her clothes 
      Revealing only age 
      Some men stared with a stun 
      Some sat in married guilt 
      That night I chewed a brick 
      For ideals I had built 

      And there we were in each other's arms 
      The very 1st dance that seemed to last 
      For everů 

      Our heads they almost touched 
      Our feet beneath us moved 
      Professional her dance 
      And me the horses hoof 
      The lights the beat the vision 
      I'd conjured in my head 
      Had magically appeared 
      And disappeared again 

      The music stopped we parted 
      But only for a bar 
      Off to the Bahamas 
      Back into her arms 
      The excitement of a kiss 
      Quenched my lovers thirst 
      We walked into the cold night 
      A night to remember
