  • Ain't nothin' goin' on in town tonight
    Except the loud party crowd drinkin' too much beer
    So baby tell me would it be alright
    If we just take a little rain check and stay right here
    I'm sure we could find somethin' to do
    As a matter of fact, baby why don't you

    Grab a couple glasses and a bottle of wine
    Walk down the hall and turn down the lights
    Baby while you're at it you might as well let down your hair
    And I can take it from there
    Yeah, I can take it from there

    I'm gonna put an old record on
    Conway Twitty yeah girl I'd love to lay you down
    Kill that ringer on your telephone
    Ain't gonna stop lovin' you til the candle burns out
    Oh there it is that little smile of yours
    Come on baby whatcha waitin' for

    Grab a couple glasses and a bottle of wine
    Walk down the hall and turn down the lights
    Baby while you're at it you might as well let down your hair
    And I can take it from there

    Tomorrow's gonna be here way too soon
    Let's not waste another minute
    Girl I've got plans for me and you

    Just grab a couple glasses and that bottle of wine
    Walk down the hall and darlin' turn down those lights
    Baby while you're at it you might as well let down your hair
    And I can take it from there
    I can take it from there
    I can take it from there
    Yeah yeah yeah yeah Writer/s: BEN HAYSLIP, CHRISTOPHER YOUNG, RHETT AKINS
