  • Last dance
    Last chance for love
    Yes, it's my last chance
    For romance tonight

    I need you by me
    Beside me, to guide me
    To hold me, to scold me
    'Cause when I'm bad
    I'm so, so bad

    So let's dance the last dance
    Let's dance the last dance
    Let's dance this last dance tonight

    Last dance
    Last dance for love
    Yes, it's my last chance
    For romance tonight

    Oh oh I need you by me
    Beside me, to guide me
    To hold me, to scold me
    'Cause when I'm bad
    I'm so, so bad

    So let's dance, the last dance
    Let's dance, the last dance
    Let's dance, the last dance tonight

    Oh oh I need you by me
    Beside me, to guide me
    To hold me, to scold me
    'Cause when I'm bad
    I'm so, so bad

    So c'mon baby
    Dance that dance
    C'mon baby
    Dance that dance
    C'mon baby
    Last dance tonight

  • Carmelo from Genova, ItalyI don't think you can be so sure she says "horny" in that much talked about bit of the lyrics as the sound is not that clear in there so it could be anything.
    I'd rather say it's something like "...cause when I'm bad I'm so so HOPELESS...". What about? - @rchie, Italy
  • Camille from Toronto, Oh5/17/12~RIP Donna Summer~this is probably her best loved tune. It has a rockin' rhythm and Donna belts out the words in a way that command you to listen to them. The opening notes sound like the disco ball starting to glitter on the dance floor, signaling the night is just about over. It starts out slow then ramps up to a very satisfying crescendo. Very well done.
  • Steve Dotstar from Los Angeles, Calove the 16th notes in the violins on this song....
  • John from Nashville, TnDonna Summer won her first of five Grammies with this song in the category of best r&b vocal performance by a female singer. She was up against Natalie Cole ("Our Love"), Chaka Khan ("I'm Every Woman"), Aretha Franklin ("Almighty Fire") and Alicia Bridges ("I Love The Nightlife").
  • Brian from Mentor, OhIs it just me, or does she say "When I'm bad, I'm so, so horny" on the last verse? She says "When I'm bad, I'm so, so bad" on the rest of the verses. The version I'm referring to is on the Greatest Hits.
