It is Friday night, I am here alone
I am sitting tight, I turned off the phone
I am doing dinner dishes, I am picking dead buds from my gardenia
I am lighting the lamp and lounging on the couch reading Anna Karenina
What a lovely night, oh I feel so free. Nobody else in sight, I got a date with me
The moon is very low, I’m feeling very high
I’ve got no place to go, there’s just myself and I
I am eating popcorn and peeling a peach, I am brewing black tea
I want to stay up late and fool around at my personal party
What a lovely night, oh I feel so free. No one could be more right,
I got a date with me.
Oh do you have a date tonight? Oh do you think it’s all right?
It’s a shame, you really are sweet, got a cousin named Bob you’ve just got to meet.
I am lighting candles, I turned the music low
There’s a romance in the air, I’m dancing very slow
I am trying out the samba, I am doing the lambada, I’m remembering the monkey.
I am getting loose, I am getting weird, I am getting crazy
What a lovely night, oh I feel so free. No one could be more right, I got a date with me.
