I'm gonna wait 'til the midnight hour
That's when my love come tumbling down
I'm gonna wait 'til the midnight hour
When there's no one else around
I'm gonna take you, girl, and hold you
And do all things I told you, in the midnight hour

Yes I am, oh, yes I am
One more thing I just wanna say right here

I'm gonna wait 'til the stars come out
And see that twinkle in your eyes
I'm gonna wait 'til the midnight hour
That's when my love begins to shine

You're the only girl I know
That really love me so, in the midnight hour

Oh yeah, in the midnight hour
Yeah, alright, play it for me one time now

I'm gonna wait 'til the midnight hour
That's when my love come tumbling down
I'm gonna wait, way in the midnight hour
That's when my love begin to shine, just you and I
Oh, baby, huh, just you and I
Nobody around, baby, just you and I
Alright, you know what?
I'm gonna hold you in my arms, just you and I
Oh yeah, in the midnight hour
Oh baby, in the midnight hour
