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 you’re dreaming
We’ve found the perfect love
And I'm like a cup come 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 you want
Take me bottom to top
Don’t leave anything undone

No, no, no do it tonight
You know the moments are right
Turn my brown body white
Come let's 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...

    General Comment"You can use me all you want. Take me bottom to top. Don't leave anything undone." Great line! The disco queen's typical song about wanting love/sex. She was SO popular decades ago.

    General CommentI know this song is probably about sex and definitely about love, but every time I hear it, I just feel so melancholy and I tear up a little.
    It has such a great melody.
    Donna Summer was a genius. A goddess.
    RIP, darling. ♥
