Tonight Is the Night- Betty Wright

Hmm, hmm, mmm, mmm Tonight is the night That you make me a woman, mmm You said you'll be gentle with me And I, I hope you will, mmm, mmm I'm nervous and I'm tremblin' Waitin' for you to walk in I'm tryin' hard to relax But I just can't keep still, no I can hear your car door slammin' I wanna play big girl and put on a sexy smile But I know so little about what love is I just can't help actin' like a child You're knockin' on my door and you're ringin' my bell Hope you're not impatient after waiting so very long A whole year I put you off with my silly hang-ups And we're both old enough to know right from wrong Tonight is the night That you make me a woman, mmm You said you'll be gentle with me And I-I hope you will, hmm, mmm I'm nervous and I'm tremblin' Waitin'…
