"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

[Zayn/Harry]: Little black dress just walked into the room
Making heads turn can't stop looking at you
It's so right, it's so right, it's so right you know
Little black dress, did you come on your own?
It's too late, it's too late, it's too late to go home
It's all right, it's all right, it's all right you know
It's all right, it's all right, it's all right you know

[Liam]: 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

[Niall/Louis]: Little black dress who you doing it for?
Little black dress I can't take any more
It's not right, it's not right, it's not right to know
Little black dress, what's your favorite song?
Little black dress I won't do you no harm
It's all right, it's all right, it's all right you know
It's all right, it's all right, it's all right 'cause I'll take you home

[Liam]: 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
