I wanna dedicate this song to all the lovers tonight.
And I expect that might be the whole world,
'Coz everybody needs something or someone to love.

When it's cold outside, who are you holding.
You know, if y'all don't mind,
I'd like to talk about this woman of mine.
She's always complaining about me never being at home.
But when I'm there broke,
(Ah, ah, ah, ah.)
She's telling about the things that her girlfriend's got,
What she ain't got, (Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah...)

And she wants me go out and get it for her brother.
But girl, I can't be in two places at one time.

If you think you're lonely now, huh,
Wait until tonight, girl.
(If you think you're lonely now,) I'll be long gone,
(You just wait until tonight, girl.)
And you'll never find another man that'll treat you right.
(If you think you're lonely now,)
When I ain't there to rub your back,
(Wait until tonight, girl.)
Just remember I made it a long fact.
(Ah, ah, ah, ah.)
When the skeletons come out of your closet,
(Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah...)
And they chase you all around the room,
And the memories sail on like a ghost,
(Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.)

And dance around in a sad song tune.

Ahhh. If you think you're lonely now,
Aw, wait until tonight. (Wait until tonight, girl.)
(If you think you're lonely now,) I'll be long gone,
(You just wait until tonight, girl.)
And you'll never find another man that'll treat you right.
(If you think you're lonely now,)
If you think you're lonely now,
Wait, wait until tonight, girl.
(Ah, ah, ah, ah.) Oh, ain't it funny how tables turn
(Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah...) When things aren't going your way.
But when love walks out and the pain walks in,
(Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.)
And you still can't help but say. Oooh.

(If you think you're lonely now,) Lord, help me.
I feel (Wait until tonight, girl.) like I wanna testify.

If you think you're lonely now,
Girl, wait until tonight. (Wait until tonight, girl.)
(If you think you're lonely now,)
If you think you're lonely, lonely, lonely now,
(Wait until tonight, girl.)
Aw, you just wait until tonight, girl.
If you think you're lonely now,
Wait until tonight, girl.
(Ah, ah, ah, ah.) You see, tonight's the night when they need to come out,
(Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah...) When your needs come out to creep.
And you toast the stars, (Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.)
And there ain't no way you can sleep. Ooooooooooh.

(If you think you're lonely now,)
If you think you're lonely now.
(Wait until tonight, girl.)
I feel like I wanna testify this evening.
(If you think you're lonely now,) I'm lonely,
'Coz I know I gotta leave her,
Aw, girl, I just can't go home. (Wait until tonight, girl.)
(If you think you're lonely now,) Hoo, hoo, hoo, hooooo.
Aw, girl you just wait. (Wait until tonight, girl.)
(If you think you're lonely now,)
If you think you got problems now, baby, you just wait.
Wait. (Wait until tonight, girl.)

(If you think you're lonely now,) Too far gone.
(Wait until tonight, girl.) I got to pack it up now.
(If you think you're lonely now,)
Ooooooh, ooooooh, ooooooh, ooooooh, ooooh, baby.
(Wait until tonight, girl.)
You say you're a little lonely,
(If you think you're lonely now,)
But everybody needs somebody to love.
(Wait until tonight, girl.)
(If you think you're lonely now,)
It's good to know that you got somebody that'll stand by your side,
That'll build you up when you're falling down.
(Wait until tonight, girl.)
And you had that someone, baby,
(If you think you're lonely now,) 'Cause I done my time,
(Wait until tonight, girl.) And it's your turn now.
(If you think you're lonely now,)
If you think you're lonely now,
(Wait until tonight, girl.) Wait, wait until tonight.
(If you think you're lonely now,) I'm tired,
Tired of the same old, sick and tired.
(Wait until tonight, girl.) It's been too long
(If you think you're lonely now,)
To think we can start all over again.
It's been too long (Wait until tonight, girl.)
To think we can start all over, start all over again.
If you think you're lonely now...
