Lyrics

That's right
Let me give you something for your appetite
You know I want to be with you all day and night
Boy, I'll send you spinning like a satellite
Hey you, I can see you like it when you get the view
Well, come on over here I'll show it all for you
We'll go somewhere together make a move or two

No sign of light except the glowing stars
Don't delay me, drive me crazy

Oh, baby, I'm ready
So what you waiting for?
Feel sexy, your body
Let's take it to the floor
After dark, all night long
Dusk 'til dawn
I want to make some honey

Tempting, everything about you is so tempting
You make me lose my will to do the shy thing
Wanted, your name is on my poster and you're wanted
Don't break my heart don't leave me disappointed

No-one around except the sound of us
Don't delay me, drive me crazy

Oh, baby, I'm ready
So what you waiting for?
Feel sexy, your body
Let's take it to the floor
After dark, all night long
Dusk 'til dawn
I want to make some honey
Oh, baby, I'm ready
I got just what you want
Feel sexy, your body
You really turn me on
After dark, all night long
Dusk 'til dawn
I want to make some honey

Give me that touch, give me the night
Give me that urge that makes me feel right
You and me here, you and me now all the way
Give me that twist, give me that rush
Give me the dream I care for so much
You and me here, you and me now
Don't delay me, drive me crazy

Oh, baby, I'm ready
So what you waiting for?
Feel sexy, your body
Let's take it to the floor
After dark, all night long
(After dark) Dusk 'til dawn
I want to make some honey
Oh, baby, I'm ready
I got just what you want
Feel sexy, your body
You really turn me on
After dark, all night long
Dusk 'til dawn
I want to make some honey
