  • Lyrics
  • You're walking up with your eyes on me
    It's looking good but I just don't know
    I need a girl who can keep her head
    All Night Long
    You didn't come just to see the show
    I guess you know what you want to see
    The way you smile lets me know I can't go wrong

    [Bridge]
    I want to touch you
    I want to feel you
    I want to make you mine

    [Chorus]
    I want to love you (all night long)
    I want to be with you (all night long)
    I want to love you (all night long)
    I want to be with you (all night long)

    I saw you standing down by the stage
    Your Black stockings and your see through dress
    Your mouth is open but I don't want to hear ya
    Say good night

    You're sorta young
    But you're over age
    I don't care cause I like your style
    Don't know about your brain
    But you look alright

    [Bridge]

    [Chorus]

    Your mind is dirty
    But your hands are clean
    You show the class
    But you're left alone
    I know I can't stand another night
    (On my own)
    Hey girl would you like some wine
    What's your name?
    Are you by yourself?
    Are you the one?
    But you say can I take you home

    [Bridge]

    [Chorus: x2]Writer/s: KEITH EDWARD CROUCH, JOHN T. JR. SMITH, MICHAEL S. MCCARY, NATHAN B. MORRIS, WANYA JERMAINE MORRIS, SHAWN PATRICK STOCKMAN
