I’m a night stone dreamer and I never felt like this before,
When she stares at the sky and her eyes fall to the floor,
When she gives me a little and always leaves me wanting more,
She’s a wildcat prowling; she’s a leopard without a claw.

I’m a fool in this scene, and I think I really like it this way,
She’s a star, she’s a dream, she’s the sun that brightens the day,
She’s a drug, sex machine; she’s a goddess to whom I pray,
I’m the rich, I’m the poor, and I guess there’s nothing left to say.

Well, she held me close and I held her so tight,
And we sat and we talked all the way through the night,
And we joked and we sang until we saw the morning light,
“Come here,” she said, “and love me.” Oh, not tonight.

I’m a streetwise gambler and I’ll never feel like this again,
She’s all-that, where it’s at and all she wants to know is when
We can kiss, make it last, have a drink, have a smoke and then,
I can look her in the eyes and she can fantasise about other men.

I’m a joke, I’m a freak, I’m a game she’s longing to play,
I’m a terminal April Fool who can last right into May,
She closes her eyes and waits for me to take her away,
Just for tonight, I’m in love, but you know, I think tomorrow I’ll pay.

Well, she took my hand and led me into the night,
I felt her close and everything felt alright,
She looked me in the eye, and whispered to my delight,
“Come here,” she said, “and love me.” Oh, not tonight.

I’m a rat, I’m a mole, and I’m a goldfish in a poisonous tank,
She’s a trick, she’s magic, she’s a jape, she’s a joke, she’s a prank,
She’s a girl with a dream; she’s a thief with the key to the bank,
She stole the scene then came clean, when she looked at me my heart just sank.

Well, she attacked my soul and I didn’t put up a fight,
She looked like an angel laying there in the moonlight,
Then she pulled me close, looked me up and down, left and right,
“Come here,” she said, “and love me.” Oh, not tonight.
“Come here,” she said, and I said, “not tonight.”
“Come here,” she begged, “I need someone tonight…”
Oh, not tonight.
Oh, not tonight.
Oh, not tonight.
Oh, not tonight.
