We're gonna stay here till we soothe our souls
If it take all night long, yeah

It might be one o'clock and it might be three
Time don't mean that much to me
I haven't felt this good since I don't know when
And I might not feel this good again

So come on and let the good times roll
We're gonna stay here till we soothe our souls
If it take all night long

And all night (all night) and all night (all night), so
Come on and let the good times roll
We're gonna stay here till we soothe our souls
If it take all night long
