Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You

Throw my ticket out the window,

Throw my suitcase out there, too,

Throw my troubles out the door,

I don't need them any more

'Cause tonight I'll be staying here with you.

.

I should have left this town this morning

But it was more than I could do.

Oh, your love comes on so strong

And I've waited all day long

For tonight when I'll be staying here with you.

.

Is it really any wonder

The love that a stranger might receive.

You cast your spell and I went under,

I find it so difficult to leave.

.

I can hear that whistle blowin',

I see that stationmaster, too,

If there's a poor boy on the street,

Then let him have my seat

'Cause tonight I'll be staying here with you.

.

Throw my ticket out the window,

Throw my suitcase out there, too,

Throw my troubles out the door,

I don't need them any more

'Cause tonight I'll be staying here with you.
