      @Danny, here’s to you in memory of Ms. Donna Summers

      🙂

      Dim all the lights sweet darling
      Cause tonight it’s all the way
      Turn up the old Victrola
      Gonna dance the night away

      Love just don’t come easy
      No it seldom does
      When you find the perfect love
      Let it fill you up

      Dim all the lights sweet darling
      Cause tonight it’s all the way, hey baby
      Turn up the old Victrola
      Gonna dance the night away

      Love just don’t come easy
      No it seldom does
      When you find the perfect love
      Let it fill you up

      Dim all the light sweet honey
      Cause tonight it’s you and me
      No need to worry darlin’
      Cause it’s for eternity

      Love don’t come easy
      This you know I understand
      I want to be your woman
      If you’ll be my man
      Let yourself go freely and I’ll
      Show you things that you’ve dreamed of
      Don’t think that your dreaming
      We’ve found the perfect love
      And I’m like a cup
      So fill me up

      Dim all the lights sweet darlin’
      Cause the night is on the way, oh baby
      Turn up the old Victrola
      Gonna dance the night away

      Do what you want
      You can use me all up
      Take me bottom to top
      Don’t leave even one drop
      No, no, no
      Do it tonight
      You know the moments are right
      Turn my brown body white
      Come on, dim all the lights

      Dim all the lights sweet darlin’
      Cause the night is on the way, hey baby
      Turn up the old Victrola
      Gonna dance the night away, hey baby
      Dim all the lights sweet darlin’
      Dim all the lights sweet honey…
