Charted: 6 1
  • Now I've had the time of my life
    No, I never felt like this before
    Yes I swear it's the truth
    And I owe it all to you

    'Cause I've had the time of my life
    And I owe it all to you

    I've been waiting for so long
    Now I've finally found someone to stand by me
    We saw the writing on the wall
    And we felt this magical fantasy
    Now with passion in our eyes
    There's no way we could disguise it secretly
    So we take each others hand
    'Cause we seem to understand the urgency

    Just remember
    You're the one thing
    I can't get enough of
    So I'll tell you something
    This could be love

    Because I've had the time of my life
    No, I never felt this way before
    Yes I swear it's the truth
    And I owe it all to you
    Hey baby

    With my body and soul
    I want you more than you'll ever know
    So we'll just let it go
    Don't be afraid to lose control, no

    Yes, I know what's on your mind when you say
    "Stay with me tonight" (stay with me)
    And remember
    You're the one thing
    I can't get enough of
    So I'll tell you something
    This could be love

    Because I've had the time of my life
    No, I never felt this way before
    Yes I swear it's the truth
    And I owe it all to you
    'Cause I've had the time of my life
    And I've searched through every open door (never felt this way)
    Till I found the truth
    And I owe it all to you

    Now I've had the time of my life
    No, I never felt this way before (never felt this way)
    Yes I swear it's the truth
    And I owe it all to you

    I've had the time of my life
    No, I never felt this way before (never felt this way)
    Yes I swear it's the truth
    And I owe it all to you
    'Cause I've had the time of my life (I had time of my life)
    And I've searched through every open door (you do it to me, baby)
    Till I found the truth (you do it to me, baby)
    And I owe it all to you

  • Lisa from Milwaukee, Wi, WiDoes anyone know of a song by Mason Williams, in which Jennifer Warnes does a duet. It's about a three-legged girl.off the subject, I realize but...........anyone??
  • Kaylah from Stoneville, NcR.I.P Patrick Swayze
    Guess someone can put and keep Baby in the corner now
  • Danielle from Jackson, Mnit is highly unlikely that Jennifer Warnes is Baby's sister, since Baby's real name is also Jennifer. I don't know any parent who would name both of their daughters Jennifer
  • Madalina from Azuga, RomaniaI absolutely love this song - it was my first dance with my husband, the night of our wedding... Yeah, the time of my life... never felt this way before...
  • N.i. from Baltimore, MdI noticed for a long time that this song sounds very similar to the Righteous Brothers hit "You've Lost that Loving Feeling." In particular, the note progression in the middle of each verse in both songs is identical. I first assumed that Bill Medley, who sung both songs, had also written both songs. In fact, he wrote neither, and the songs are written by different people. I wonder if he had any creative input into how the songs sounded.
  • Nicola from London, EnglandThis song is relaxing to listen to, and one off the best songs of all time.
  • Cece from Omaha, NeDirty Dancing is such a good movie also the song.
    Patrick Swayze looked so fine in this movie
  • Dale from Redditch, Englandi love dirty dancing so i really love this song
  • Pete from Nowra, Australiaremember nobody puts Baby in the corner.....

    NOBODY..............
    allright...love the big dance scene at the end Of Dirty Dancing to this song
  • Grace from York, Nmomg dis song is so gud 2 dance 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
  • Sherrie from Ithaca, NyThis is as real as it gets. No rush, no hi/lo bs. Step by step and in rhythm at that. The truth hidden in this song and the movie are for those who are searching for real, not woooosh.
  • Brian from Meriden, CtThe wonder of all the feel-good romance of that uncanny classic can be summed up in one word: BOORRRIIINNNGG
  • Lauren from Lincoln, Englandis it true that 'apparently' ( so i read in a magazine' that jennifer warnes is infact 'baby's sister? I didn't believe it, asw they are not very similar ages, but just wondering!
