Dire Straits - Two Young Lovers Lyrics




It was the last day of summer
It was the first of a new romance
He walked into her on the corner
She said, 'i don't dance'

He said, 'baby let me teach you'
She said, 'o.k., when? '
He said, 'how can I reach you baby
I'd really like to see you again'

He picked her up on a friday night
He took her for a bite to eat
His heart was beating and his hands were shaking
She thought he was sweet

And he stood on her shoes on the dance floor
Well, they were doing it cheek to cheek
And he walked her home and he kissed her
He was walking on air all week

Well, they couldn't stand to be apart
They couldn't leave one another alone
Her mama used to say, 'it's getting late sweetheart
It's time that boy went home'

And upstairs papa kissed mama
And she gave him a sweet caress
He said, 'here's to the two young lovers
Let's wish 'em every happiness'

It was the last day of summer
They came walking home hand in hand
They went and told her mama
They showed her the wedding band

Mama cried and poured the wine
Papa just said God bless
Now, here's to the two young lovers
Let's wish 'em every happiness

Dire Straits Two Young Lovers Comments
  1. Califlowerdreamer28

    Love this song!! Amazing rhythms of guitars, piano and saxophone!!

  2. Liam Lennon

    Fun fact: Mel Collins went on to become the sax player in Helmut Zerlett's band on the Harald Schmidt late night show in Germany for many, many years. Still amazes me because I loved that show :)

  3. Jesus

    Whoop a Da Dah... We got Sir Mel Collins joining us on the saxaphone.......... (...*silence*...) So, Yeah we also got his brother Phil on the drums too ok.
    Fuck it, just follow this lads here we go.

  4. Chango Chilemba

    It would've been better if *Hand in hand* was included on the dvd instead of this, or Skateaway...
    But the dvd is still incredible.

  5. Mario Mego

    Gran tema de los Dire Straits invita a bailar con mucho animo, llena de alegría, buena combinación de saxofón y teclados es lo que le da vida y color a esta canción, Dos jóvenes amantes o Two Young Lovers

  6. naynay& adele vg

    Has anyone payed close attention to Alan Clarkes piano playing in this song,how does he do it ?

    reWork Gaming

    How does he do what? As in what does he play?

  7. Chris

    Best version. imo

  8. touhami Blidi

    Quel grand pianiste ce Alan Clark

  9. William Mankelow

    When Hal Lindes goes into the solo at 3:47 I've always felt it like a dog let off the leash, like he's been allowed one solo in the whole set and he's going to make the most of it. Great solo as well, very well played but not overdone.

    John_ pryce

    William Mankelow haha it is true, but Mark gave him parts of Sultans too, and he certainly makes the most of them !!

  10. IGOR SKLYAROV

    Классный Шабаш!!

  11. Classic Rock Station

    It was the last day of summer
    It was the first of a new romance
    He walked into her on the corner
    She said, 'I don't dance'

    He said, 'Baby let me teach you'
    She said, 'O.K., when?'
    He said, 'How can I reach you baby
    I'd really like to see you again'

    He picked her up on a Friday night
    He took her for a bite to eat
    His heart was beating and his hands were shaking
    She thought he was sweet

    Well, they were doing it cheek to cheek
    And he walked her home and he kissed her
