Put A Dime In (and play that song)


Chorus
The juke box in the corner played the blues
We clung to one another round the floor,
Our bodies swaying to the gentle beat.
Put a dime in and play that song once more.



I remember the first time that we met.
A furtive glance across a crowded room
The feeling when I looked into your eyes.
And the juke box playing out that same old tune.

We got it on in style, yeh, you and me
Giving and taking all that we possessed.
Living each day as though it was the last
We never gave a thought for all the rest!

Chorus

While the juke box in the corner played the blues
We clung to one another round the floor,
Our bodies swaying to the gentle beat.
Put a dime in and play that song once more.



Before too long the passion all burned out,
Reduced to ash.  It never stood a chance.
But darlin’ please, before we call it quits
Put a dime in and let’s have one more dance.

We’ll listen while the lady sings the blues,
And circle one more time around the floor.
Just one more kiss before we say farewell.
I won’t look back as I walk out the door.

Chorus

As the juke box in the corner played the blues
We clung to one another round the floor,
Our bodies swaying to the gentle beat.
Put a dime in and play that song once more.
