  • I don't want you to misunderstand me
    I just want to say what's on my mind
    No need to hit me with an attitude
    Because I haven't got the time

    I want you to know one thing is certain
    I truly love your company
    I won't take no if that's you answer
    At least, that's my philosophy

    Stay the night, there's room enough here for two
    Stay the night, I'd like to spend it with you
    Stay the night, why don't we call it a day
    No on can stop us, and nothing is in the way

    It comes from friendly conversation
    And if you still don't have a clue
    Unless there's something else you've got in mind
    We've got better things to do

    Stay the night, there's room enough here for two
    Stay the night, I'd like to spend it with you
    Stay the night, Why don't we call it a day
    No one can stop us, and nothing is in the way

    (Just to have you near me) Here by my side
    (Just to have you near me) And when I get next to your body
    (Just to have you near me) Oh
    One thing I can tell you, we're gonna be fine
    We're gonna have a very good time!

    Stay the night, there's room enough here for two
    Stay the night, I'd like to spend it with you
    Stay the night, Why don't we call it a day
    No one can stop us, and nothing is in the way

    Woooooh, woooooh, woooooh
    No one can stop us, and nothing is in the way
    What do you want to say?
