Lyrics - First Date, Last Date

First Date, Last Date
(from 1980's The Last Stroll)

In a coal dark room where the musicís loud
She picked up my attention
Well all I did was sit and drink and stare
I couldnít believe my bloodshot eyes
When she came in my direction

She smiled and said ďHey, letís get out of hereĒ
I recognized the chance I had
Itís chemistry nobody cared
Not too good but she wasnít bad

First date, last date
Just a one time attraction
First date, last date
Only temporary satisfaction

I know Iím not the only one
To feel a little sorry for something I might have done last night
You might think itís kind of dumb but I never worry

I face the music in the morning light
She was a dream in the dark
But light can be so stark
Midnight peacock may be just a lark

First date, last date
Just a one time attraction
First date, last date
Only temporary satisfaction

Some girls only want to find one thing
A man they can marry
To give them houses, kids, security
But if the weight of such a life is more than you can carry
Just remember all those fish in the sea

Thereís good times up ahead for sure
Lots of girls want nothing more
Than just to clean their cheese tonight and yours

First date, last date
Just a one time attraction
First date, last date
Only temporary satisfaction
