Lyrics of Tonight Again

I don’t want tomorrow
Oh baby tonight’s so good
Tonight’s so good
This is one tough act to follow
Oh baby tonight’s so good
Forget tomorrow
We can do tonight again

Verse 1:
Oh Everyone’s got their problems
There’s always something on your mind
Oh but tonight we aint gotta solve them
For now let’s leave them all behind

Do whatchya whatchya whatchya want
Do whatchya whatchya whatchya want
Do whatchya whatchya whatchya want
Oh get on it
Ooh get on it

Verse 2:
Oh! Some people might call ya crazy
They say we only live for fun
Ooh They may be right but only maybe
But I can guarantee what we got is what they want
Je ne veux pas de demain
Oh baby, ce soir est si bon
Ce soir est si bon
Il est vraiment difficile de faire mieux
Oh baby, ce soir est si bon
Oublie demain
On peut recommencer ce soir

Couplet 1:
Oh tout le monde a ses problèmes
On a toujours quelque chose en tête
Oh mais ce n’est pas ce soir qu’on les résoudra
Alors pour l'instant laissons tout ça derrière nous

Fais ce que, ce que, ce que tu veux
Fais ce que, ce que, ce que tu veux
Fais ce que, ce que, ce que tu veux
Oh vas-y, fonce
Oh vas-y, fonce

Couplet 2:
Oh! Il y en a qui te traiteront probablement de cinglée
Ils disent qu’on ne vit que pour s’amuser
Oh et qui sait, ils ont peut-être raison
Mais je garantis que nous avons ce qu’ils convoitent
