Lookin' 'round for a feelin'
I love the rhythm and blues
The place was rockin' and reelin'
I thought I'd shake me loose
The band was pumpin' Motown

By the midnight hour
They could've raised the dead
They were takin' it higher
Higher, higher, higher, ringin' in my head
Lay it down, lay it down
Lay it down, lay it down

Whiskey, wine and women
They get me though the night
I ain't lookin' for trouble
I ain't lookin' to fight
A little vertical persuasion
Would do me right
What I'm really needin'
Ah, double shot tonight.

By the midnight hour
We were on our way
She was takin' it higher
Higher, higher, higher, then I heard say

[Chorus]
