wonderful tonight lyrics – don williams

i been cryin so long
i been a watin for you to come along
there you are what can i say
i wont ever let you get away

i been sittin by myself
been compairin you to ever body else
you always won each hand you play
i wont ever let you get away

i can’t pretend that you might happen twice
an i can not leave you to ur own device
thinkin bout it takes to long
there aint no right there aint no wrong
this kinda deal don’t come along ever day
i can’t let you get away

i been prayin for a sign
for heaven to show me which road was mine
an then you smiled my knees gave way

the true and corrected lyrics:

it’s late in the evening; she’s wondering what clothes to wear.
she puts on her make-up and brushes her long blonde hair.
and then she asks me, “do i look all right?”
and i say, “yes, you look wonderful tonight.”

we go to a party and everyone turns to see
this beautiful lady that’s walking around with me.
and then she asks me, “do you feel all right?”
and i say, “yes, i feel wonderful tonight.”

i feel wonderful because i see
the love light in your eyes.
and the wonder of it all
is that you just don’t realize how much i love you.

it’s time to go home now and i’ve got an aching head,
so i give her the car keys and she helps me to bed.
and then i tell her, as i turn out the light,
i say, “my darling, you were wonderful tonight.
oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight.”

i took that for a sign that you should stay

well i can t pretend that you might happen twice
an i can not leave you to ur own device
thinkin bout it takes to long
there aint no right there aint no wrong
this kinda deal don’t come along ever day
i can’t let you get away

get awayyyyy
get awayyyyy
