Two Young Lovers

This song is by Dire Straits and appears on the EP ExtendedancEPlay (1983) and on the double live album Alchemy (1984).

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
