"Afternoon Delight" as written by and Bill Danoff....
Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight
Gonna grab some afternoon delight
My motto's always been 'when it's right, it's right'
Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night?
When everything's a little clearer in the light of day
And we know the night is always gonna be there any way

Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite
Looking forward to a little afternoon delight
Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ingite
And the thought of lovin' you is getting so exciting
Sky rockets in flight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight

Started out this morning feeling so polite
I always though a fish could not be caught who wouldn't bite
But you've got some bait a waitin' and I think I might try nibbling
A little afternoon delight
Sky rockets in flight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight

Please be waiting for me, baby, when I come around
We could make a lot of lovin' 'for the sun goes down

Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite
Looking forward to a little afternoon delight
Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ingite
And the thought of lovin' you is getting so exciting
Sky rockets in flight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight

Afternoon delight!

    Sky rockets in flight is a guy's dick gettin hard. And pointing up to the sky. This isn't rocket science, it's dick science. If you couldnt see that....then everybody needs help.

    General Commentthis song makes me giggle. i have a good memory on a beach with it. i think its about not being able to wait until night time, or the proper time, to make love/have sex with the person you are with. its about thinking about them while you're trying to do other things until you just cant take it and you just go for it. i like it :)

    General CommentGosh. Jerks. Maybe people are too young to know this song from anything besides Anchorman. Heaps of songs have become popular again just because they appear in a movie.

    General CommentOkay, I love Will "Ferral" just as much as the next guy who will inevitably misspell his name, but the movie was overrated.
