Chicago - Stay The Night Lyrics

I don't want you to misunderstand me
I just wanna say what's on my mind
No need to hit me with an attitude
Because I haven't got the time
I want you to know one thing's for certain
I surely love your company
And I won't take no if that's your answer
At least that's my philosophy

Stay the night
There's room enough here for two
Stay the night
I'd like to spend it with you
Stay the night
Why don't we call it a day
No one can stop us, nothing is in the way
Have some friendly conversation
And if you still don't have a clue
Unless there's something else you've got in mind
We've got better things to do


Just to have you near me
Here by my side
Just to have you near
And when I get next to your body
Just to have you near me
I wanna tell you something, make it perfectly clear
We're gonna have a very good time

    You know, if she is driving like that, trying to shake you off the hood of her car, maybe she is not the one? Anyone willing to endanger you like that deserves the opposite of your attention. Dump the bitch.

  38. Kevin H

    Psycho lady!

  39. Bryan Vansickle

    Stay the night son!!


    AND the girl's name is Ingrid Anderson.


    First of all, that was NOT the actual Peter Cetera! It was a stuntman after being interviewed in 1985 by Robert Lamm. And the video is also at the Los Angeles River...

    Patricia Archie

    That was Peter singing!!!!!!!!


    My favorite part was when they crashed through the sign. I kept rewinding it.

  43. Jim Arnott

    3:50 how long did it take for the truck to explode?

  44. Greasemonkey 67

    Damn this is literally the most badass music video ever made\

  45. jaime phillips

    Good song. Nothing is in the way!

  46. Anamaria Rodriguez

    Still continue to have a crush on Peter Cetera! 😘😘😘😘😘


    Same, and I'm a straight man. He's a very handsome man with a beautiful voice.

    karo m.o

    I'm in love Peter 😍🤤♥️

    Patricia Archie

    Me too!!!!!!!

  47. Jerry Lee Kersey

    Back in the 80s when no meant maybe

  48. Shirley Giordano

    Poor Cetera. He just wants her to stay the night.

  49. Juan Munoz

    La mejor música de los 80"s y 90's viva la buena música

  50. jwf155

    At 3:29 that 442 goes into a wild spin. I would love to see raw footage of it !!!!

  51. Amy Collins

    Peter Cetera is like a cat with nine lives in the video. Slapped, hit by a car, blown up... and he survives.

  52. Ron Port

    Ingrid Anderson...what a beauty!

  53. RJW27

    This is a badass song, with a super badass car!! And an evil ass woman!

  54. Michelle Loves animals

    I miss my MTV

  55. Amy Collins

    Surprised that chick didn't get arrested for reckless driving.

  56. Manuel Troche

    It's funny 😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣

  57. liliam Marin

    My mother was always nostalgic about her old songs and now I’m doing the same

    I now understand mom RIH 😪

  58. MrDuds1984

    Sorry this was never Chicago it was basically a Cetera solo album


    This is a legendary song that never dies

    Patricia Archie

    You are so right , it's the best !!!!!!!!


    My favorite band! I have this song on my CD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  61. Bart Simpson

    Ingrid's eyes at 4:23, i find myself dreaming.....again

  62. Christopher Cotton

    4:21 Mr. Cetera I hope 🤞 you have very good medical 🏥 and life Insurance if you’re gonna hang around that crazy 😜 psychotic broad behind the wheel of ANY VEHICLE 🚗 she drives.

    Amy Collins

    Surprised that chick didn't go to jail for reckless driving.

  63. Ignatius

    1:02 this stunt could have gone wrong in so many different ways.

    Joe Mangion

    I heard in a Peter Cetera interview saying the stunt person actually got hit and was injured.


    Χρυσος διπλος 1987 !!!! Τι ομορφα χρονια....

  65. Solar Flare

    I wonder is he manage to stay the night with that beautiful fury.

  66. Lil Roc

    One Of The Best Videos Of The 80's! When MTV Was Worth Watching.

  67. Brad Bassett

    That stunt man takes a beating!

  68. Mikael Koo

    One of the best guitar solos ever.

  69. Monica Muniz Muniz

    Alguém Brasil

  70. motownmommy

    Love the bridge of this song.

  71. jimmy haze

    '68 Olds 442 ragtop, rare car today

  72. Kevin_ Burghos

    geniales por siempre

  73. Inside The LR

    So lemme get this straight. The cops go after the woman who's running for her life, rather than the clearly disturbed criminal who was hanging off the hood of her hot rod!? And then a cop basically dies because of a huge misunderstanding? And then Peter Cetera and his truck burst into flames for seemingly no reason at all? But the two guys who were inside the truck are completely unharmed? And the chick turns the tables on him in the end by abducting him while he's in dire need of life saving medical attention?

    That's just good story telling right there. Makes perfect sense.

  74. George Schmidt

    Totally Awesome '80s classic; when videos were: a. fun b. had a story line c. had MUSIC ; that honey is SAF

  75. Gloria Woodie

    I so wish that was me in the car!

  80. tom darco

    Tom Darco you have better things to do

  81. tom darco

    I so love this and you somehow this is way I love

  82. tom darco

    First! Yeah Baby!

  83. blockmasterscott

    Now that’s what I call serenading a woman!

  84. Ron Schwab

    Great stunt work! Surely there were some bumps and bruises at least suffered by the pro stunt persons to put this video out.

  85. ManoSound Studios

    Ozzy Osbourne chorus hahaha

  86. genio maya
