Woman, put on that flowered dress
the night is young and there's just no time to rest

The banners are all hung, the songs are all but sung
I think this time is for us to ACT RIGHT NOW
the fires are all lit, it's time for us to split..this carnival is gonna last the whole night through..

We gonna let that music play
it wont stop until the break of day
We're gonna dance that whole night through...
this carnival has got a hold on me, and i know it's got a hold on you

summer sets, and your eyes lead me on
softly kissing underneath that midnight sun
sippin on a drink then i begin to think there's no other place i'd rather be right now..than lying here with you, gazing at the ocean blue, this sweet surrender is gonna last the whole night through..

We gonna let that music play
it wont stop until the break of day
We're gonna dance that whole night through...
this carnival has got a hold on me, it's got a hold on you.

..and we'll escape away for a moment
and put our feet down in the sand
we'll leave past and future behind us, cuz i'm doing the best that i can. (x2)

We gonna let that music play
it wont stop until the break of day
We're gonna dance that whole night through...
this carnival has got a hold on me, and i know it's got a hold on you.
