This song is assumed to have been written by Vince Clarke. It is unknown why it does not appear on Speak & Spell or as a B-side. It was only performed during the 1980 Tour, and only one relatively poor audience recording of this song exists from 1980-10-30 Bridge House, London, England, UK (which happens to be the earliest circulating genuine recording of Depeche Mode). The entire track, as well as lyrics transcribed to the best of our ability, are below. The track is mentioned by Daryl Bamonte in Bong Magazine, Issue 24 on page 18:

Lyrics


Tomorrow's Dance

Saturday night, you look so chic

Been waiting for this moment, been waiting all week

The pub is crowded, much too hot

The boys they're dancing, they just can't stop


Tomorrow's dance, tomorrow's dance

You dance your dance, you dance your chance

Tomorrow's dance, tomorrow's dance

You dance tonight and you dance it right


Ice cold drinks, get sold tonight

We're gonna get happy, the occasion is right

You start to move, you take the floor

The music is better than ever before


Tomorrow's dance, tomorrow's dance

You dance your dance, you dance your chance

Tomorrow's dance, tomorrow's dance

You dance tonight and you dance it right


Three A.M., I just can't last

The music is loud, and much too fast

You cannot get out, you wanna stay

You gotta hang out another dancing day


Tomorrow's dance, tomorrow's dance

You dance your dance, you dance your chance

Tomorrow's dance, tomorrow's dance

You dance tonight and you dance it right
