Let's meet
When all the streets
Are dark
And all
The town's asleep

Gotta a mad desire
I can't explain
To kiss you on the corner
Of Broad and Main

Come by the church
A game we'll play
The milkman gives
The bride away

[Chorus:]
Outside
The de-
Depart-
-ment store
We'll look
At each
Display

Pickin' kitchen collar,
Nursery too
Just like two honeymooners do
Let's meet tonight
When all the streets are dark

[Repeat end chorus]

I'll phone you up tonight
To meet me
On the third bench in the park
Because the moon is ours completely
When all the streets are dark

Baby, we'll go rollin'
We'll go rockin'
We'll go rockin' down the block and
To the tickin' and the tockin'
Of hte city hall clock

We'll kissin' and we'll huggin'
We'll be on to meet the moon
We'll be sittin' on the flag
By the national bank

Gotta take a little hop
Over to the pawn shop
'Cause the windows full of things
For the shiny wedding rings
Won't it be frantic
More than romantic

When everybody's dozin', baby,
I'll be there for posin'

[Repeat chorus]
