  • She's getting dressed up, putting on that lipstick
    Shimmy shaking, ride into them cut-offs baby, oh yeah
    You're getting off work, cashing up that paycheck
    Gotta change that shirt and pick that girl up on her front step
    Here she comes now looking so fine
    You've been waiting on this night for such a long, long time

    She slides in and you rode down Main Street,
    You turn right when that red light turns green
    Sun sets now, you're half way to heaven
    She picks a song, you turn it up to eleven
    You say "do you wanna?" and she says "hell yeah"
    So you hit the party, all your buddies are jealous
    Someday you'll be looking back on your life
    At the memories, this is gonna be one of those nights

    Crowded backyard, everybody's laughing
    Kinda party, next week you'll say I was there when it happened
    Coming up on midnight, bout time to get going
    And then the DJ starts to play your favorite song
    You slow dance for three minutes or so, and then she whispers baby let's go

    And then she slides in and she gives you the green light
    You hold off till you turn on the headlights
    Someday when you're looking back on your life
    At the memories, this is gonna be one of those nights
    Yeah one of those nights

    Full moon through a crack in the windshield
    You hold her close and you'll never forget how her heartbeat feels
    No you never will
    'Cause someday when you're looking back on your life
    At the memories, this is gonna be one of those nights
    Yeah one of those nights
    One of those nights
    Yeah one of those nights
    One of those nights, oh
    One of those nights
    This is gonna be, hey
    This is gonna be
    One of those nights
    Oh oh Writer/s: CHRIS TOMPKINS, LUKE ROBERT LAIRD, RODNEY DALE CLAWSON
