It’s late in the evening, she’s wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make-up and brushes her long blonde hair
And then she asks me, „Do I look all right?”
And I say, „Yes, you look wonderful tonight”
We go to a party and everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady that’s walking around with me
And then she asks me „Do you feel all right?”
And I say, „Yes, I feel wonderful tonight”
I feel wonderful because I see The love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all Is that you just don’t realize how much I love you
It’s time to go home now and I’ve got an aching head
So I give her the car keys and she helps me to bed
And then I tell her, as I turn out the light
I say, „My darling, you were wonderful tonight
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight”
