"Just For Tonight" as written by Carole Bayer Sager and Marvin Hamlisch....
Way across the planes the lights spell out a code
No one knows where they take us but we'll search till we grow old
All the paths they lead to a single solemn place
Then we'll stay for the weekend and leave without a trace

Just for tonight
Just maybe we've made it
Sing like you want this
Sing like you want this

Just for tonight
Just maybe we've made it
Sing like you want this
Sing like you want this

We can take tonight, take our time
So sing like you need this and be who you want to
All the paths they lead to a little standing place
And if you stay for a weekend we'd leave without a trace

Just for tonight
Just maybe we've made it
Sing like you want this
Sing like you want this

Just for tonight
Just maybe we've made it
Sing like you want this
Sing like you want this


Just for tonight, just for tonight
Just maybe we've made it
Sing like you want this
Sing like you want this

Just for tonight
Just maybe we've made it
Sing like you want this
Sing like you want this

    General CommentI think the lyrics are really:

    "Enola Gay, you should have stayed at home yesterday
    Ah-ha words can't describe the feeling and the way you lied"

    Oh... oops... were we meant to ignore the blatent rip off?
