The Dells Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Do you recall the night
That very very special night?
Do you remember a girl, that very special girl?
Well to the old and to the new
We rededicate this song to you

Oh, what a night (to love you dear)
Oh, what a night (to hold you near)
Oh, what a night (to squeeze you dear)
That's why I love you so

Oh, what a night to (love you dear)
Oh, what a night to (walk you dear)
Oh, what a night to (kiss you dear)
That's why I love you so

I won't forget all those things
You have told to me
The craze in my heart
Won't let me forget your love

Oh, what a night (to love you dear)
Oh, what a night (to walk you dear)
Oh, what a night (to kiss you dear)
That's why I love you so

Oh, what a night (to love you dear)
Oh, what a night (to walk you dear)
Oh, what a night (to kiss you dear)
That's why I love you so

No, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no
One more night
Can I walk you home one more night?
I wanna make love to you one more night
I love you baby




I want you baby, I need you baby
I love you baby, one more night

I’m 24, born in 97 and I love listening to these old songs. They were so real, and made you feel something. Wish more music was like this.

You know your music you have good taste in music music from the 60s 70s and 80s was good clean soulful music and great love songs.

@liamx6636

Actually, the artists were severely mistreated and often suffered poverty and depression. Not so much "real" as masking a sinister existence. Sorry to burst your bubble. They are no doubt beautiful songs, but the history of many of them is tragic.
