"Paradise By The Dashboard Light" (Meat Loaf)

Well I remember every little thing As if it happened only yesterday Parking by the lake and there was not another car in sight And I never had a girl Looking any better than you did And all the kids at school They were wishing they were me that night And now our bodies are oh so close and tight It never felt so good, it never felt so right And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife C'mon hold on tight Oh c'mon hold on tight Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night I can see paradise by the dashboard light
Ain't no doubt about it we were doubly blessed 'Cause we were barely seventeen and we were barely dressed Ain't no doubt about it Baby got to go and shout it Ain't no doubt about it We were doubly blessed 'Cause we were barely seventeen and we were barely dressed Baby don't you hear my heart You got it drowning out the radio I've been waiting so long for you to come along and have some fun Well I gotta let you know No you're never gonna regret it So open up your eyes I got a big surprise It'll feel all right Well I want to make your motor run And now our bodies are oh so close and tight It never felt so good, it never felt so right And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife C'mon hold on tight Oh c'mon hold on tight Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night I can see paradise by the dashboard light Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night (Deep dark night) paradise by the dashboard light You got to do what you can And let mother nature do the rest Ain't no doubt about it We were doubly blessed 'Cause we were barely seventeen and we were barely dressed We're gonna go all the way tonight We're gonna go all the way and tonight's the night We're gonna go all the way tonight We're gonna go all the way and tonight's the night We're gonna go all the way tonight We're gonna go all the way and tonight's the night We're gonna go all the way tonight We're gonna go all the way and tonight's the night Okay, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going here Two down, nobody on, no score, bottom of the ninth There's the windup, and there it is A line shot up the middle, look at him go This boy can really fly He's rounding first and really turning it on now He's not letting up at all He's gonna try for second, the ball is bobbled out in center And here comes the throw, and what a throw He's gonna slide in head first Here he comes, he's out No, wait, safe-safe at second base This kid really makes things happen out there Batter steps up to the plate, here's the pitch-he's going And what a jump he's got, he's trying for third Here's the throw, it's in the dirt-safe at third Holy cow, stolen base, he's taking a pretty big lead out there Almost daring him to try and pick him off The pitcher glances over, winds up, and it's bunted Bunted down the third base line, the suicide squeeze is on Here he comes, squeeze play, it's gonna be close, here's the throw, here's the play at the Holy cow, I think he's gonna make it Stop right there I gotta know right now Before we go any further Do you love me?
