(Michael Dulaney / Jason Sellers

Tired of channel surfing
El Camino ain't working
It's Monday night and I'm hurtin' for company
Bummed a ride to the hideaway
I'm the only guy in the place
Bored silly wasn't gonna stay
Then she walked in, heaven sent
And it occurs to me

(chorus)
What a good night to be lonely
Somebody's looking out for me
Oh what an opportunity
Right out of the blue
Is it luck or a twist of fate
Doesn't really matter either way
It's a good night, a good night to be lonely

Dollars worth of quarters
Played some songs and ordered
One for me and one for her as I tipped my hat
Said that she felt restless
Just moved here from Texas
That's when I suggested
Maybe she could dance with me
She said thought you'd never ask

(chorus)

(bridge)
She's following I'm leading
And it feels like I'm dreamin'

(chorus)
