Saturday night

who do you love?
who do you really love?
who are you holding on to?
who are you dreaming of?
who do you love?
when it’s cold and it’s starlight
and the streets are so big and wide
I love you

an ordinary boy {ah-ah-ah-ah}
make the world alright {ah-ah}
he loved me all the way
saturday night
loved me all the way

it’s a quarter to five
and the store fronts are closing in paradise
leave me outside the Cherry-light
you and I’ll walk away

an ordinary boy
make the world seem alright
he loved me all the way
saturday night

who do you love?
ah, who do you really love?
who are you holding on to?
who are you dreaming of?
who do you love?
when it’s cold and it’s starlight
and the streets are so big and wide
I love you

an ordinary boy {ah-ah-ah-ah}
make the world alright {ah-ah-ah-ah}
he loved me all the way
saturday night

an ordinary boy {ah-ah-ah-ah}
make the world seem alright {ah-ah-ah-ah}
he loved me all the way
saturday night

who do you love?
