Little Black Dress is a song by One Direction from their album, Midnight Memories. It is the tenth track of the album.

Background

The song depicts a man watching an attractive woman in a black dress entering a party. He refers to the woman as "little black dress" because he does not know her name yet. The song resembles The Rolling Stones signature sound.

Billboard listed the song in a 2015 article titled 'Songs That Should've Been Singles' and stated the track was "better than anything The Strokes had released in the past decade".

The song was featured on the Where We Are Tour tour setlist and the On The Road Again Tour setlist.

Lyrics

  
[Harry & Louis]
Little black dress
Just walked into the room
Makin' heads turn
Can't stop looking at you
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright, you know

Little black dress
Did you come here alone?
It's too late
It's too late
It's too late to go home

It's alright
It's alright
It's alright, you know
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright you know

[Zayn, Harry & Louis]
I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me

[Harry &Louis]
Little black dress
Who you doin' it for?
Little black dress
I can't take anymore
It's not right
It's not right
It's not right, you know

Little black dress
What's your favorite song?
Little black dress
I won't do you no harm

It's alright
It's alright
It's alright, you know
It's alright
It's alright
'Cause I'll take you home

[All]
I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me

[Instrumental]

I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me

I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me
