[Effie:]
You want all my love and my devotion
You want my loving soul right on the line
I have no doubt that I could love you forever
The only trouble is, you really don't have the time
You've got one night only, one night only
That's all you have to spare
One night only, let's not pretend to care
One night only, one night only
Come on big baby come on
One night only, we only have 'til dawn
In the morning this feeling will be gone
It has no chance going on
Something so right has got no chance to live
So let's forget about chances, this one night I will give

[Announcer:]
Singing their new record sensation, Deena Jones and the Dreams

[Deena and the Dreams:]
You want all my love and my devotion
You want my loving soul right on the line
I have no doubt that I could love you forever
The only trouble is, I really, really don't have the time
You've got one night only, one night only
That's all I have to spare
One night only, let's not pretend to care
One night only, one night only
Come on big baby come on
One night only, we only have 'til dawn (We only have 'til dawn)
In the morning this feeling will be gone (Be gone)
It has no chance going on
Something so right has got no chance to live
So let's forget about chances, it's one night I will give
One night only, one night only
Come on big baby come on
One night only, we only have 'til dawn (Nothing but one night)
One night only, one night only
There's nothing more to say
One night only, words get in the way (Nothing but one night)
One night only, one night only...
