Dance Tonight

1 - [Raphael Saadiq] (Dawn Robinson)

I wanna dance tonight
(Dance tonight)
I wanna toast tonight
(Toast tonight)
I'll spend my money tonight
(Spend your money)
I'll spend my money tonight
(Spend your money, yeah)
I wanna dance tonight
(Dance tonight)
I wanna toast tonight
(Toast tonight)
I'll spend my money tonight
(Spend your money)
I wanna get freaky tonight
(Freakin' baby yeah)

First thing we need to do
Is find brand new fits for you
Make sure that you look good
Make sure that I smell good
Let's purchase two new Bentleys
I know that it looks trendy
So glad that it's not windy
Here comes that girl named Dawny
Ask if she wants to go
Tonight's gonna be hot for sure
Big dancing on the floor
Folks strippin' I don't know
Money flying everywhere
Champagne we won't go there
Bottles poppin' in the air
They'll be screaming I don't care

Repeat 1

Look perfect and can't help it
Me and a couple friends
Don't need to settle down
My body don't know how
Right there I see you looking
Sure hope that you're not tooken
Don't get lost in the crowd
This place just so damn wild
Go ahead and flush your eyes
Go ahead do what you like
I'm feeling just as fly
Do you hear your song tonight?

Repeat 1

[Dawn Robinson](Raphael Saadiq)
Dance tonight, toast tonight
Spend your money baby
(Spend my money)
Dance tonight, toast tonight
(Dance tonight)
Freak your body baby
Dance tonight, toast tonight
(Dance tonight, another toast baby)
Spend your money baby
Dance tonight, toast tonight
Freak your body baby

Repeat 1 till end
