Lyrics

Not Married Tonight

Let’s pretend we’re not married tonight and I can meet you at the hotel bar
You’ll buy yourself a little chiffon dress and you can catch my eye from afar
Pull on a long haired brunette wig and tuck your pretty blonde hair underneath
I’ll walk right up and pretend to mistake you for someone I never ever seen

You’ll take a drink and stir it slowly and try to tie a cherry stem with your tongue
I cannot put my finger on it now girl what about you makes me feel so young
You’re gonna flash a smile and play hard to get like you used to do
And I’ll pretend to play along with the game and I’ll tell you all our future could hold for you I said

Stop, let me look at you
You make a man always want to be true
I said hold on, when we come around
We’re never gonna want to be found, I said
Stop, let me turn a phrase
You’re gonna leave me all in daze, I said
Hold on, we’re feeling alright
Let’s pretend we’re not married tonight

I’ll introduce myself as someone else like Bond, James Bond
And I will navigate with stunning success as if I didn’t already know all the things that turn you off and on
We may blow it out and we may turn in by midnight
And if anybody asks we’ll tell ‘em we danced and stayed out all night, well I said

Stop, let me look at you
You make a man always want to be true
I said hold on, when we come around
We’re never gonna want to be found, I said
Stop, let me turn a phrase
You’re gonna leave me all in daze, I said
Hold on, we’re feeling alright
Let’s pretend we’re not married tonight

I can see the light in your eyes shining just as strong and just as bright
As when we both threw a handful of stars into a pitch black sky

Let’s pretend we’re not married tonight and I can meet you at the hotel bar
Like the time I first laid eyes on you and I never thought I’d ever get you too far
We’ll forget the world tonight and forget our routine
With a little bit of anything goes and a little bit of let me guess what you mean, I said

Chorus

We’re a mile high deep in the funk and I got to improvise like Thelonius Monk
I’m laying down a theory that can’t be debunked and it always brings me back to you
And it’s hard core four on the floor and you know I’ve been down this road before
I’m hugging every curve like I’m Roger Moore, and you know I’ll bring it round to you
