  • Please don't talk about love tonight
    Please don't talk about sweet love
    Please don't talk about being true
    And all the trouble we've been through
    Ah, please don't talk about all the plans
    We had for fixin' this broken romance
    I want to go where the people dance
    I want some action
    I wanna live

    Action, I got so much to give
    I want to give it
    I want to get some too, oh-ah-ah

    Oh I, I love the nightlife
    I've got to boogie
    On the disco 'round, oh yeah
    Oh, I love the nightlife
    I've got to boogie
    On the disco 'round, oh yeah

    Please don't talk about love tonight
    Your sweet talking won't make it right
    Love and lies just bring me down
    When you've got women all over town
    You can love them all and when you're through
    Maybe that'll make, huh, a man out of you
    I got to go where the people dance
    I want some action
    I wanna live, yeah

    The action
    I got so much to give
    I want to give it
    I want to get some too, ah-ah

    Oh I, I love the nightlife
    I've got to boogie
    On the disco 'round, oh yeah
    Oh, I love the nightlife
    I've got to boogie
    On the disco 'round, oh yeah

    Oh, I love the nightlife
    I've got to boogie
    On the disco 'round, oh yeah
    Oh, I love the nightlife
    I've got to boogie
    On the disco 'round, oh yeah
    I love the nightlife
    I've got to boogie
    On the disco 'round, oh yeah Writer/s: Alicia Bridges, Susan Hutcheson

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 17th 1978 "I Love The Nightlife" by Alicia Bridges peaked at #5 (for 3 weeks) on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; it had entered the chart of July 2nd and spent over a half-year on the Top 100 (31 weeks)...
    On the strength of being on the Top 100 for 31 weeks it was ranked #88 on 'Billboard Year-End Hot 100 Singles of 1978' chart and then was #64 on 'Billboard Year-End Hot 100 Singles of 1979' charts...
    She had only one other Top 100 record, "Body Heat", it stayed on the Top 100 for a two week stay, reaching position #86...
    Ms. Bridges will celebrate her 61st birthday come next July 15th.
  • Jennifer Harris from Grand Blanc, MiI always loved this song! I love the video,too.
  • James from Findlay, Oh"For Bridges, this was her only hit." Maybe, based on radio play, but I find "City Rhythm" by Alicia at least equally enjoyable.
  • Ched - from La Union, Philippineswhenever a band play this song... i usually go upstage to sing with the band... my husband just love watching on stage
