“Dancing in the Dark” is a popular song, with music by Arthur Schwartz and lyrics by Howard Dietz, that was first introduced by John Barker in the 1931 revue The Band Wagon. The 1941 recording by Artie Shaw and His Orchestra earned Shaw one of his eight gold records at the height of the Big Band era of the 1930s and 1940s.

It was subsequently featured in the classic 1953 MGM musical The Band Wagon and has since come to be considered part of the Great American Songbook. In the film it is given a ‘sensual and dramatic’ orchestration by Conrad Salinger for a ballet performance by Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse.

Sarah’s accompanied by Hal Mooney and His Studio Orchestra. Recorded in New York, October 29, 1956. (Mercury Records)

What though love is old
What though song is old
Through them we can be young

Hear this heart of mine
Make yours part of mine
Dear one, tell me that we’re one

Dancin’ in the dark till the tune ends
We’re dancin’ in the dark and it soon ends
We’re waltzin’ in the wonder of why we’re here
Time hurries by–we’re here and gone

Lookin’ for the light of a new love
To brighten up the night I have you, love
And we can face the music together
Dancing in the dark
Dancing in the dark

There’s a saying old
Says that love is blind
Still we’re often told
“Seek and ye shall find”
So I’m going to seek
A certain lad
I’ve had in mind

Looking everywhere
Haven’t found him yet
He’s the big affair
I cannot forget
Only man I ever think
Of with regret

I’d like
To add his inital
To my monogram
Tell me
Where is the shepherd
For this lost lamb?

There’s a somebody
I’m longin’ to see
I hope that he turns
Out to be
Someone to watch over me

I’m a little lamb
Who’s lost in the wood
I know I could
Always be good
To one
Who’ll watch over me

Although he may
Not be the man some
Girls think
Of as handsome
To my heart
He carries the key

Won’t you tell him please
To put on some speed
Follow my lead
Oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me

Won’t you tell him please
To put on some speed
Follow my lead
Oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me
Someone to watch over me

I can only give you love that lasts forever
And a promise to be near each time you call
And the only heart I own for you and you alone

That’s all
That’s all

I can only give you country walks in springtime
And a hand to hold when leaves begin to fall
And a love whose burning light will warm the winter night

That’s all
That’s all

There are those, I am sure, who have told you
They would give you the world for a toy
All I have are these arms to enfold you
And a love time can never destroy

If you’re wondering what I’m asking in return, dear
You’ll be glad to know that my demands are small
Say it’s me that you’ll adore for now and ever more

That’s all
That’s all

If you’re wondering what I’m asking in return, dear
You’ll be glad to know that my demands are small
Say it’s me that you’ll adore for now and ever more

That’s all
That’s all
