TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT Betty Wright First of all Iíd like to say good evening And weíre so pleased that So many of you could come out and share In all the love and all the happiness we have in store for you We want you to have a real good time ĎCause thatís just what we have in mind Is that alright with you Now, this is a tune that I composed And itís called Tonight is the night That you make me a woman Now I never intended recording this song It was a personal poem This is until the day that my producer Happened to thumb through the pages of my notebook He came across the words and he said ďWe got to somethiní with these words Itís happening every day And people wanna hear about it, BettyĒ You see, itís the story of a young girl Making love for the very first time Now when I finally got a melody I took it home and I-I played it for my mother Now I got to tell you a little bit about my mother You see I come from one of those pretty large families And Iím the baby of the family And you know you never grow up to your mother Iíll never forget the way she looked at me when I played it for her She said, ďUh, I like the music You know, baby, the melody itís really nice But I know youíre not gonna sing that songĒ But we eased it right on by, yes, we did And it became one of my biggest records too So I want you to do this for me if you will Everybody think back to your very first time Now Iíll give you a little while longer ĎCause I know some of you Have to think back a little further than others Come on now, I want you to play catch-up ĎCause I donít want you waitiní till I get to the end of my song Sayiní, ďOh, yeah, now I rememberĒ Now whether it was good Or you just smiliní it was good Or on the other hand if it was not so good Hereís my story Hmm...hmm...mmm...mmm... Tonight is the night That you make me a woman, mmm... You said youíll be gentle with me And I-I hope you will, mmm...mmm... Iím nervous and Iím trembliní Waitiní for you to walk in Iím tryiní hard to relax But I just canít keep still, no I can hear your car door slamminí I wanna play big girl and put on a sexy smile But I know so little about what love is I just canít help actiní like a child Youíre knockiní on my door and youíre ringiní my bell Hope youíre not impatient after waiting so very long A whole year I put you off with my silly hang-ups And weíre both old enough to know right from wrong Tonight is the night That you make me a woman, mmm... You said youíll be gentle with me And I-I hope you will, hmm...mmm... Iím nervous and Iím trembliní Waitiní for you to walk in Tryiní hard to relax But I just canít keep still Mmm...hey, baby Ho, ho, baby Ho...yeah...yeah... Oh, but what if my mama should come home early And catch us doiní what weíre doiní Not only will I never live it down But my whole family relationship itíll all be ruined But weíve gone a little bit too far now Oh, to turn around So letís just pray That true love is what weíve found Tonight, tonight Tonight, tonight Ho, Iíll never forget tonight No, no, Iíll never forget tonight Thatís when you make me feel real, mmm...hmm... You make me feel real, real good Oh...oh...whoa...oh...oh...whoa...whoa... Yeah, and I wanna thank your love Said Iíve got to thank your love ĎCause you make me feel good And I love you, baby I love you and I know it And I ainít too proud to show it ĎCause I love you, baby And I need you, baby I want you, my love, my love My, my, my baby Iíll never forget tonight No, Iíll never forget tonight ĎCause you make me feel good And I love you, baby You make me feel real good And I love you, baby ĎCause you gave me Uh, uh, pure love, yeah Uh, uh, uh, pure love Said I like that, baby Uh, uh, pure love Said I need that, sugar Uh-uh-uh, pure love Thereís nothiní phony about it Uh-uh, pure love Your love I canít do without it Uh-uh-uh, pure love, ooh I love him, I know it I ainít too proud to show it I love him, I know it I ainít too proud to show it I love him, I know it I ainít too proud to show it I love him, I know it And I ainít too proud to show it Tonight, tonight Tonight, tonight Mmm...mmm...mmm...
