EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘The Last Waltz’ – Engelbert Humperdinck

What was the number one song in the UK on 6th September 1967?

Engelbert is back again, this time with The Last Waltz, which hit the top spot for 5 weeks.

Classic Humperdinck and a classic Easy Listening ballad. The music waltzes along with Engelbert’s smooth vocals. It’s a completely inoffensive tune (though slightly unnerving that he refers to his love interest as a “little girl”), one that I’m sure baby boomers adored. As a Generation X-er, I’ll pass.

Lyrics

Wonder, should I go or should I stay
The band had only one more song to play
And then I saw you out the corner of my eye
A little girl, alone and so shy
I had the last waltz with you
Two lonely people together
I fell in love with you
The last waltz should last forever
But the love we had was goin’ strong
Through the good and bad, we get along
And then the flame of love died in your eye
My heart was broke in two when you said goodbye
I had the last waltz with you
Two lonely people together
I fell in love with you
The last waltz should last forever
It’s all over now, nothing left to say
Just my tears and the orchestra playing
I had the last waltz with you
Two lonely people together
I fell in love with you
The last waltz should last forever
