Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight
Gonna grab some Afternoon Delight
My motto's always been "When it's right, it's right."
Why wait until the middle of a cold, dark night?

When everything's a little clearer in the light of day?
And we know the night is always gonna be here anyway?

Thinkin of you's working up my appetite
Lookin' forward to a little Afternoon Delight
Rubbin' sticks and stones together make the sparks ignite
And the thought of lovin' you is getting so exciting

Skyrockets in flight!
Afternoon Delight!
Afternoon Delight!
Afternoon Delight!

Started out this morning feeling so polite,
I always thought a fish could not be caught that didn't bite.
But you got some bait a-waiting and I think I might
Like nibblin' a little Afternoon Delight

Skyrockets in flight!
Afternoon Delight!
Afternoon Delight!
Afternoon Delight!

Be waiting for me, baby, when I come around.
We can make a lot of lovin' 'fore the sun goes down

Thinkin' of you's workin' up a' appetite
Lookin' forward to a little afternoon delight
Rubbin' sticks and stones together make the sparks ignite
And the thought of lovin' you is getting so exciting

Skyrockets in flight!
Afternoon Delight!
Afternoon Delight!
Afternoon Delight!

Afternoon Delight!

(A madrigal fugue)

Afternoon Delight!

    This guy is looking forward to getting "together" with his girl. He doesn't want to wait until that night, so he says they're going to get together that afternoon for some "afternoon delight"
