I've been watching you waltz all night Diane
They never notice the zap gun in your hand

You'll shoot 'em down because you're waiting for somebody good to come on
But you're sleeping with the television on
You say you're looking for someone solid here
Tonight unless you take some kind of chances dear

You're only standing there 'cause somebody once did somebody wrong
But you'll be sleeping with the television on
You're eyes are saying talk to me, talk to me
Your eyes are saying talk to me, talk to me

I know you don't need anybody's protection
And more a fool who's not afraid of rejection
All night long, all night long
All night long, all night long

But my attitude is "boy, don't waste my time"
But I won't say a word 'cause it just might be somebody else's same old line
All night long, all night long
All night long, all night long
Sleeping with the television on
