Whenever dark has fallen
You know the spirit of the party
Starts to come alive.
Until the day is dawning
You can throw out all your blues
And hit the city lights.
'Cause there's music in the air
And lots of loving everywhere
So gimme the night. Gimme the night.

You need the evening action,
A place to dine, a glass of wine,
A little late romance.
It's a chain reaction.
You'll see the people of the world
Whenever dark has fallen
You know the spirit of the party
Starts to come alive.
Until the day is dawning
You can throw out all your blues
And hit the city lights.
'Cause there's music in the air
And lots of loving everywhere
So gimme the night. Gimme the night.

You need the evening action,
A place to dine, a glass of wine,
A little late romance.
It's a chain reaction.
You'll see the people of the world
