  • People everywhere
    A sense of expectation hanging in the air
    Giving out a spark
    Across the room your eyes are glowing in the dark
    And here we go again, we know the start, we know the end
    Masters of the scene
    We've done it all before and now we're back to get some more
    You know what I mean

    Voulez-vous (ah-ha)
    Take it now or leave it (ah-ha)
    Now it's all we get (ah-ha)
    Nothing promised, no regrets
    Voulez-vous (ah-ha)
    Ain't no big decision (ah-ha)
    You know what to do (ah-ha)
    La question c'est voulez-vous
    Voulez-vous

    I know what you think
    The girl means business so I'll offer her a drink
    Looking mighty proud
    I see you leave your table, pushing through the crowd
    I'm really glad you came, you know the rules, you know the game
    Master of the scene
    We've done it all before and now we're back to get some more
    You know what I mean

    Voulez-vous (ah-ha)
    Take it now or leave it (ah-ha)
    Now it's all we get (ah-ha)
    Nothing promised, no regrets
    Voulez-vous (ah-ha)
    Ain't no big decision (ah-ha)
    You know what to do (ah-ha)
    La question c'est voulez-vous

    And here we go again, we know the start, we know the end
    Masters of the scene
    We've done it all before and now we're back to get some more
    You know what I mean

    Voulez-vous (ah-ha)
    Take it now or leave it (ah-ha)
    Now it's all we get (ah-ha)
    Nothing promised, no regrets
    Voulez-vous (ah-ha)
    Ain't no big decision (ah-ha)
    You know what to do (ah-ha)
    La question c'est voulez-vous
    Voulez-vous

    Voulez-vous (ah-ha ah-ha, ah-ha)
    Voulez-vous (ah-ha ah-ha, ah-ha)
    Voulez-vous (ah-ha ah-ha, ah-ha)
    Voulez-vous (ah-ha ah-ha, ah-ha)
    Voulez-vous (ah-ha)
    Take it now or leave it (ah-ha)
    Now it's all we get (ah-ha)
    Nothing promised, no regrets
    Voulez-vous (ah-ha)
    Ain't no big decision (ah-ha)
    You know what to do (ah-ha)
    I can still say voulez-vous

    Voulez-vous (ah-ha)
    Take it now or leave it (ah-ha)
    Now it's all we get (ah-ha)
    Nothing promised, no regrets
    Voulez-vous (ah-ha)
    Ain't no big decision (ah-ha)
    You know what to do (ah-ha)
    I can still say voulez-vous Writer/s: Benny Goran Bror Andersson, Bjoern K. Ulvaeus
