Dance The Night Away
Engelbert Humperdinck Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Here comes my happiness again
Right back to where it should have been
?Cause now she's gone and I am free
And she can't do a thing to me

I just wanna dance the night away
With senoritas who can sway
Right now tomorrow's lookin' bright
Just like the sunny mornin' light

And if you should see her
Please let her know that I'm well
As you can tell
And if she should tell you
That she wants me back
Tell her no
I gotta go

I just wanna dance the night away
With senoritas who can sway
Right now tomorrow's lookin' bright
Just like the sunny mornin' light

And if you should see her
Please let her know that I'm well
As you can tell
And if she should tell you
That she wants me back
Tell her no
I gotta go

I just wanna dance the night away
With senoritas who can sway
Right now tomorrow's lookin' bright
Just like the sunny mornin' light

I just wanna dance the night away
With senoritas who can sway




Right now tomorrow's lookin' bright
Just like the sunny mornin' light

Here comes my happiness again
My joy has returned to me


Right back to where it should have been
In the place it rightfully belongs


?Cause now she's gone and I am free
Because she is no longer with me and I am liberated


And she can't do a thing to me
There is nothing she can do to harm me now


I just wanna dance the night away
All I want to do is get lost on the dance floor for one evening


With senoritas who can sway
In the company of beautiful women who can move their bodies to the beat

At the moment, my future appears hopeful and optimistic


Just like the sunny mornin' light
Similar to the warmth and brightness of a sunrise

And in the event that you encounter her


Please let her know that I'm well
Communicate to her that I am doing fine


As you can tell
As it is obvious


And if she should tell you
But if she were to confess to you


That she wants me back
That she desires to reunite with me


Tell her no
Inform her that it is not possible


I gotta go
I need to move on with my life and leave the past behind


I just wanna dance the night away
All I want is to revel in pure, carefree enjoyment for one night


With senoritas who can sway
In the presence of captivating ladies who are able to move and captivate


Right now tomorrow's lookin' bright
Currently, the future seems full of promise


Just like the sunny mornin' light
Much like the radiance of dawn
