  • Song Lyrics:
    I remember every little thing as if it happened only yesterday,
    Parking by the lake and there was not another car in sight.
    And I never had a girl looking any better than you did,
    And all the kids at school, they were wishing they were me that night

    And now our bodies are oh, so close and tight,
    It never felt so good, it never felt so right,
    And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife,
    Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife.
    C'mon! Hold on tight!
    C'mon! Hold on tight!
    Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night,
    I can see paradise by the dashboard light

    Ain't no doubt about it, we were doubly blessed,
    'Cause we were barely seventeen, and we were barely dressed.
    Ain't no doubt about it, baby got to go and shout it,
    Ain't no doubt about it - we were doubly blessed!
    'Cause we were barely seventeen, and we were barely dressed

    Baby, doncha hear my heart? You got it drowning out the radio.
    I've been waitin' so long for you to come along and have some fun

    And I gotta let ya know, no, you're never gonna regret it,
    So open up your eyes I got a big surprise, it'll feel all right.
    Well I wanna make your motor run!

    And now our bodies are oh, so close and tight,
    It never felt so good, it never felt so right,
    And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife,
    Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife.
    C'mon! Hold on tight!
    C'mon! Hold on tight!

    Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night,
    I can see paradise by the dashboard light
    Oh, it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night,
    Paradise by the dashboard light.

    You got to do what you can and let Mother Nature do the rest.
    Ain't no doubt about it - we were doubly blessed,
    'Cause we were barely seventeen, and we were barely --

    We're gonna go all the way tonight, we're gonna go all the way - tonight's the night
    We're gonna go all the way tonight, we're gonna go all the way - tonight's the night
    We're gonna go all the way tonight, we're gonna go all the way - tonight's the night
    We're gonna go all the way tonight, we're gonna go all the way - tonight's the night

    [Phil Rizzuto Announcing]
    Ok, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going here, two down, nobody on,
    no score, bottom of the ninth, there's the wind-up, and there it is, a line shot up
    the middle, look at him go. This boy can really fly! He's rounding first and really
    turning it on now, he's not letting up at all, he's gonna try for second; the ball is
    bobbled out in center, and here comes the throw, and what a throw! He's gonna
    slide in head first, here he comes, he's out! No, wait, safe - safe at second base
    This kid really makes things happen out there. Batter steps up to the plate; here's
    the pitch - he's going, and what a jump he's got, he's trying for third, here's the
    throw - its in the dirt - safe at third! Holy cow, stolen base! He's taking a pretty big
    lead out there, almost daring him to try and pick him off. The pitcher glances over,
    winds up, and it bunted, bunted down the third base line, the suicide squeeze is on!
    Here he comes, squeeze play, it's gonna be close, here's the throw, here's the
    play at the plate, holy cow, I think he's gonna make it!

    Stop right there! I gotta know right now!
    Before we go any further --!
    Do you love me? Will you love me forever?
    Do you need me? Will you never leave me?
    Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
    Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?
    Do you love me? Will you love me forever?
    Do you need me? Will you never leave me?
    Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
    Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?
    I gotta know right now. Before we go any further
    Do you love me !!!? Will you love me forever !!!?

    Let me sleep on it - baby, baby let me sleep on it,
    Let me sleep on it, I'll give you an answer in the morning
    Let me sleep on it - baby, baby let me sleep on it,
    Let me sleep on it - I'll give you an answer in the morning
    Let me sleep on it - baby, baby let me sleep on it,
    Let me sleep on it, I'll give you an answer in the morning

    I gotta know right now!
    Do you love me? Will you love me forever?
    Do you need me? Will you never leave me?
    Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
    Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?
    I gotta know right now! Before we go any further
    Do you love me? Will you love me forever?

    What's it gonna be, boy?
    Come on, I can wait all night!
    What's it gonna be, boy, yes or no?
    What's it gonna be, boy? YES - OR - NO?

    Let me sleep on it - baby, baby let me sleep on it,
    Let me sleep on it, I'll give you an answer in the morning

    I gotta know right now!!!
    Do you love me?
    Let me sleep on it!!
    Will you love me forever?
    Baby, baby let me sleep on it!
    Do you need me? Will you never leave me?
    Let me sleep on it!
    Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
    Let me sleep on it. I'll give you an answer in the morning!!
    Will you take me away, will you make me your wife?
    I'll tell you in the morning!!!!!

    I gotta know right now, before we go any further
    Do you love me? Will you love me forever?

    Let me sleep on it!
    Will you love me forever?
    Let me sleep on it!
    Will you love me forever?

    I couldn't take it any longer - Lord I was crazed!
    And when the feeling came upon me like a tidal wave,
    So I swore unto my God and on my mother's grave
    That I would love you to the end of time!
    I swore that I would love you to the end of time!

    So now I'm praying for the end of time to hurry up and arrive!
    'Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you,
    I don't think that I can really survive!
    I'll never break my promise or forget my vow,
    But God only knows what I can do right now!
    I'm praying for the end of time, It's all that I can do -
    Praying for the end of time, so I can end my time with you!!!

    It was long ago and it was far away
    And it was so much better than it is today
    It never felt so good
    It never felt so right
    And we were glowing like
    A metal on the edge of a knife
    (Bill L)

    When Phil Rizzuto was a guest on Don Imus' radio show in 1991,he said he received a ton of hate mail from nuns & priests who took him to task for participating in the recording of this song.

    Phil Rizzuto did not know what his mock broadcast was to be used for. When he found out, he was surprised.
