RENDEZVOUS

The Greg Kihn Band's cover version


I had a dream our love would last forever
I had a dream, tonight my dream comes true
So meet me at midnight
We'll find a place where there's no one in sight
Ooh, we'll have a rendezvous

You know when I told you, girl, how much I liked you
I've got a feeling that you like me too
And if you love me tight
We'll be riders, girl, all of the night
Ooh, we'll have a rendezvous

'Cause we desire so much more than this, girl
That's why I'm riding on the power and living on the promise of your last kiss
Because
I had a dream our love would last forever
I had a dream, tonight my dream comes true
And she'll be there all night
And if I'm down then she'll make me feel right
Ooh, ooh, ooh, I want a rendezvous
I want a rendezvous
I want a rendezvous
I want a rendezvous
