Whenever dark has fallen
Starts to come alive.
You can throw out all your blues
'Cause there's music in the air
So gimme the night. Gimme the night.
You need the evening action,
A little late romance.
You'll see the people of the world
'Cause there's music in the air
So gimme the night. Gimme the night.
So come on out tonight
On a ride through paradise.
Then we can be lovers 'cause I see that
Don't you know we can fly?

We'll feel the rhythm of the evening
Never mind the weather.
Until the morning light.
And lots of loving everywhere.
Whenever dark has fallen
Starts to come alive.
You can throw out all your blues
'Cause there's music in the air
So gimme the night. Gimme the night.
You need the evening action,
A little late romance.
You'll see the people of the world
'Cause there's music in the air
So gimme the night. Gimme the night.
So come on out tonight
On a ride through paradise.
Then we can be lovers 'cause I see that
Don't you know we can fly?

We'll feel the rhythm of the evening
Never mind the weather.
Until the morning light.
And lots of loving everywhere.
