  • Dim all the lights sweet darling
    'Cause tonight it's all the way
    Turn up the old Victrola
    Gonna dance the night away

    Love just don't come easy
    No it seldom does
    When you find the perfect love
    Let it fill you up

    Dim all the lights sweet darling
    'Cause tonight it's all the way, hey baby
    Turn up the old Victrola
    Gonna dance the night away

    Love just don't come easy
    No it seldom does
    When you find the perfect love
    Let it fill you up, hey baby

    Dim all the lights sweet honey
    'Cause tonight it's you and me
    No need to worry darlin'
    'Cause it's for eternity

    Love just don't come easy
    This you know I understand
    Want to be your woman
    If you'll be my man
    Let yourself go freely and I'll
    Show you things that you've dreamed of
    Don't think that your dreaming
    We've found the perfect love
    And I'm like a cup, come fill me up

    Dim all the lights sweet darling
    'Cause tonight it's all the way, whoa baby
    Turn up the old Victrola
    Gonna dance the night away

    Do what you want
    You can use me all up
    Take me bottom to top
    Don't leave anything undone

    No, no, no do it tonight
    You know the moments are right
    Turn my brown body white
    Come on dim all the lights

    Dim all the lights sweet darling
    'Cause tonight it's all the way, hey baby
    Turn up the old Victrola
    Gonna steal your heart away, hey baby

    Dim all the lights sweet darlin'
    Dim all, dim all
    And dance the night away
    Dim all the lights sweet honey
    Gonna steal your heart away Writer/s: DONNA SUMMER
