"Stay Awhile" as written by and Ken Tobias....
Into my room he creeps
Without making a sound
Into my dreams he peeps
With his hair all long and hanging down

How he makes me quiver
How he makes me smile
With all this love I have to give him
I guess I'm gonna stay with him awhile

She brushes the curls from her eyes
She drops her robe on the floor
And she reaches for the light on the mirror
And the darkness hits her pillow once more

How she makes me quiver
How she makes me smile
With all this love I have to give her
I guess I'm gonna stay with her awhile

How it makes me quiver
How it makes me smile
With all this love I have to give you
Guess I'm gonna stay with you awhile

How it makes me quiver
How it makes me smile
With all this love I have to give you
Guess I'm gonna stay with you awhile

Stay with you awhile

(Whispered)
I guess I'm gonna stay

    General CommentFirst off, the lyrics are "She brushed the curls from MY eyes", and "She reaches for the light on the Bureau". I just love this song. It's so pretty, sweet, and simple. It makes me think of my bf everytime i hear it.

    General CommentIts about a guy who climbed the window of his girlfriend's bed room and they make love in the middle of the night. I remember my grandpa always play this song when I was kid. I dont speak english then so I dont understand the naughtiness of the lyrics. I thought it was a very innocent song cos of the melody.
