Sittin' in the classroom
Feel your heart goin' boom
You start to get the feelin'
And your head begins to reelin'
And you can't hear what the teachers say
Because the news is going down
About the rock and roll dance in town
And you know I just gotta hear that band play

Tonight (6x)

Oh tonight
Tuesday got the letter
The army thinks I better
Get myself down there right away
Well, it's not that I'm lazy, I'm just too crazy
For goin' doin' things that way
Because the kids will be in town
And the jams are going down
I wanna do things the natural way

Tonight (6x)

Oh tonight
Every day you gonna hear 'em say
You gonna get down in the U.S.A, tonight
Ok, kids, it's rockin' time!
Every day you gonna hear 'em say
You gonna get down in the U.S.A, tonight
Sun starts goin' down, I call my girl up on the phone
I said I'll pick you up at eight, at last we'll be alone
I hop in my machine, you know I gotta make the scene
Dancin' through the crowd, say the people goin' wild
When the bands really rockin' then there's no stoppin'
My girl begins to twirl, the room begins to whirl
It's out of this world, out of this world

Tonight (6x)

Oh tonight
Hey now everybody I gotta get movin'
I gotta muscle me up some action
Well I'll see you all later
Well bye bye
