Average White Band - Just Wanna Love You Tonight Lyrics

I've got one evening left before I go
Don't want to spend it one my own
This time tomorrow I'll be on the road
So I got to get on the telephone
I need to see you girl, before I go away
Just got to have your love to remember
Your precious company, ooh
That's what I need today
I won't be back until September

You give me pleasure like I never had
I guess you know just what I like
Even if I'm not your only man
You make me feel as if I am

So tonight I want to have you to myself
'Cause I'm leaving in the morning light
Don't want you running to no one else
Just wanna love you tonight

There is a saying you better not forget
It's always come true for me
They say that what you see is what you get
And woman, you're all that I can see
That's why I'm asking you, oh just try and
Understand me, baby

This ain't time for silly games
And I'm a desperate man, can't you hear it in my voice
Without your love I just wouldn't be the same
So I'm putting my heart out to you, my love
Doing everything within my power
Now I've done my best - did I hear you say yes
I'll be round at your door within the hour

'Cause tonight I want to have you to myself
I'm leaving in the morning light
Don't want you running to no one else
Just wanna love you tonight

  22. grgeory d Bishop

    Went to see these guys way back in the seventies .Me with three of my good friends.Walked in and started to look around.As the concert began we looked at each other and realized we and the band were the only white people in the whole place.It was all cool .The folks in front of us started passing joints back to us and told me y'all hang onto it and I'll fire up another .When we smoked the first one he passed another on back .He did that all throughout the concert .They were really cool .They even walked us out of the building.Cool deal all the way around.I have no idea what was in the joints but boy we were blown away.We were wild all night long .Had a great time to.Concert was great to.

These were nice times with nice music and AWB was my club band an this 8 -track was my weekend tape . Great love song  feeling  the warm summer night upon my face as  I drove down the road listening to this with  right arm around my date holding her close  as this song played.

    I played in a band back in the 70s and 80s and these are songs we played, today you don't see band's anymore like AWB and many more. R&B nothing like it.

    I was about the same age too, Richard, with my 8 track blasting in my 1974 Mercury Marquis Brougham. It was an awesome time in my life.

  92. michael robertson

    one of the best ! This song is the epitome of a strong romance where He wants Her for what may be the final time , Perhaps He is going of to war ,prison , etc . he wants this night to be the most special night that He will ever experience !


    'this time tomorrow I'll be on the road" (band) He's singing to a prostitute

  93. musiclover59

    This is one of my ATF songs. A song and performance of exceptional genius. Alan and Hamish's lead vocals are superb, particularly Alan's "I love ya, I love ya, I love ya, I love ya, I love ya, I love ya ................"

    Richard Marshall Bowman

    I am in awe....still, after 40 years.

    Devika Follosco

    I love Hamish's "...can't you hear it in my voice?..."

  94. ted sheehan

    this song still melts me to the ground....the chills....
