Bitter Sweet the Musical - The Last Dance Lyrics
Music and lyrics by Noël Coward.
They've all gone now-have no fear
Sarah's mother may be near,
If she should hear
She might be rather cross with us,
Elderly people make too much fuss.
Always insist on a chaperone,
Never leave love alone.
We feel frightened, if you please
Don't flirt or tease.
Gentle and sweet in your purity,
We give our hearts as security.
We shall be scolded a lot for this.
YOUwon't miss 'ust one kiss.
Think of the consequences,
Please, you haven't realized
What an appalling thin for us to be so compromised,
So dreadfully, dreadfully, dreadfully compromised.
The moon is descending,
Behind the tall trees in the park.
We men together
Were wondering whether
We might have a bit of a lark.
No jokes in the dark, please,
What sort of a lark, please?
Just a slight dance,
One more dream-of-delight dance,
Just a sort of good-night dance
Would be glorious fun.
Won't you let us,
Please let us, just stay for a while,
Please won't you, be gay for a while?
All we desire is to play for a while
Now the party's done.
Just a fast waltz,
Till the world seems a vast waltz,
Very often the last waltz
Is the birth of romance.
It's a June night,
There's a thrill in the moonlight;
Let's give way to the tender surrender
Of one last dance

The Call of Life
If You Could Only Come with Me
I'll See You Again
Tell Me What is Love?
The Last Dance
Life in the Morning
Ladies of the Town
If Love Were All
Evermore and a Day
Dear Little Café
Bitter Sweet Waltz
Bonne Nuit, Merci
Alas! The Time is Past
We All Wear a Green Carnation
I'll See You Again (reprise)
