"Strangers In The Night" as written by and Bert/snyder Kaempfert....
Strangers in the night
Exchanging glances
Wondering in the night
What were the chances
We'd be sharing love
Before the night was through?
Something in your eyes
Was so inviting
Something in your smile
Was so exciting
Something in my heart told me I must have you

Strangers in the night, two lonely people
We were strangers in the night
Up to the moment when we said our first hello
Little did we know
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away
And ever since that night
We've been together
Lovers at first sight
In love forever
It turned out so right
For strangers in the night

Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away
Ever since that night
We've been together
Lovers at first sight
In love forever
It turned out so right
For strangers in the night

Doo-bee-doo-bee-doo
Doo-doo-dee-dah, dah-dah-dah-dah-dah

    General CommentThis song makes me cry and feel that I'm in love.

    Sadly, I'm not.
    But I hope one day I can feel like a stranger in the night and fall in love

    General CommentI love this song. To me it's about love at first sight.
    Seeing someone, maybe across a crowded room, instantly falling in love, meeting, and then living happily ever after with them.

    My Opinionthis song could also be about a vampiric lover.
    They only come out at night, they would be a 'stranger' and glamour could contribute to the 'sharing of love'.

    Very nice song anyway.
