TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT BY BETTY WRIGHT

TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT BY BETTY WRIGHT

LYRICS

Hmm, hmm, mmm, mmm
Tonight is the night
That you make me a woman, mmm
You said you’ll be gentle with me
And I, I hope you will, mmm, mmm
I’m nervous and I’m trembling
Waitin’ for you to walk in
I’m tryin’ hard to relax
But I just can’t keep still, no
I can hear your car door slammin’
I wanna play big girl and put on a sexy smile
But I know so little about what love is
I just can’t help actin’ like a child
You’re knockin’ on my door and you’re ringin’ my bell
Hope you’re not impatient after waiting so very long
A whole year I put you off with my silly hang-ups
And we’re both old enough to know right from wrong
Tonight is the night
That you make me a woman, mmm
You said you’ll be gentle with me
And I-I hope you will, hmm, mmm
I’m nervous and I’m tremblin’
Waitin’ for you to walk in
I’m tryin’ hard to relax
But I just can’t keep still
Hey, baby
Ho, ho, baby
Ho, yeah, yeah
Oh, but what if my mama should come home early
And catch us doin’ what we’re doin’
Not only will I never live it down
But my whole family relationship it’ll all be ruined
But we’ve gone a little bit too far now
Oh, to turn around
So let’s just pray
That true love is what we’ve found
Tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight
I’ll never forget tonight
No, no, I’ll never forget tonight
When you make me feel real, mmm, hmm
You make me feel real, real good
Oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, whoa
Yeah, and I wanna thank your love
Said I’ve got to thank your love
‘Cause you make me feel good

Dance with my words
if I kiss yours tonight,
hold you close to me
and start another fire?
I’m waiting for your touch
but I can’t relax wondering
if you’re really mine,
do you still see my eyes?
Take my kiss as it finds
you at my door,
making me make you
as we start another dance.

Tonight is the night
we meet again
on a sweet refrain
where love is nigh..
Sweetheart of mine
let’s soar in style
under the starlight sky
as the moon shines
so adorn our hearts

The moon is bright
your beauty shines
you know me, love
we’ll take our time
just in my arms
tonight’s the night
A kiss, just one.
I’ll stop your tears
& hold your heart
& calm your fears
undress you slowly
kiss you warmly
& find the poetry
with our bodies.
