"The Only Couple On the Floor" is a song Frank Sinatra recorded.

Sinatra initially recorded the song in February of 1975, but after finding the track to be sub par, he did not have the song released. He decided to re-record the song again with Don Costa on March 4, 1975 which he then released in 1975.[2]

During Sinatra's come back performances in the 1970s, Sinatra recorded several singles under his Reprise label, this song included. This song was the B-side of the charting, "I Believe I'm Gonna Love You" which charted at #47 and lasted on the charts for seven weeks. This song however did not chart.[3]

Lyrics Edit

The band played songs from years ago,
There wasn't one we didn't know,
The singer's voice was soft and low,
The lights came on, we didn't know
That we were the only couple on the floor that night
The music stopped, but you still held me tight.
I held your body close to mine,
Your eyes were closed and so were mine.
I fell in love with you once more,
Just like a million times before.
And we were the only couple on the floor that night
The music stopped, but you still held me tight.
Then I awoke, I was alone, my dreams like you have come and gone.
Tonight I'll hold you one more time, and dream your eyes are closed like mine.
And we'll be the only couple on the floor tonight.
When the music stops, you'll still hold me tight.
Yes, we'll be the only couple on the floor tonight.
When the music stops, you'll still hold me tight.
