OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
How did it get so late
Where did the night to go?
Strange how it slips away
When I'm with you
allemande left and weave
I know it's almost two
I know you should leave but wait
promenade
Oh come on now
Why don't you spend the night


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands
Find the corner lady dosado
Touch a quarter, then scoot back there my friend
Boys run and do a right and left thru
Ladies lead dixie style to a wave, boys cross fold
Swing the corner lady, promenade
Oh come on now
Why don't you spend the night


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Maybe I spoke to soon
Maybe my timings wrong
Maybe it's something
I shouldn't have said at all
allemande and weave
But when I look in your eyes
I feel were almost one
promenade
Ah, something tells me
The night only just begun


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Why don't you spend the night
Somehow it seems so right
Why does it have to end soon
Please stay 'till the mornin' light
allemande left and weave
It's such a long way home
And you'd only be alone
promenade
Oh come on now
Why don't you spend the night

Why Don't You Spend The Night
 
 

How did it get so late, where did the night go to
Strange how it slips away when I'm with you
I know it's almost two, I know you should leave, but wait
I've thought it over and there's something I gotta say

Why don't you spend the night? Somehow it seems so right
Why does it have to end so soon, please stay 'til the morning light
It's such a long way home, and you'd only be alone
Ah, come on now, why don't you spend the night?

Maybe I spoke too soon and maybe my timing's wrong
And maybe it's something I shouldn't have said at all
But when I look in your eyes, I feel like we're almost one
Ah, something tells me the night's only just begun

Why don't you spend the night? Somehow it seems so right
Why does it have to end so soon, please stay 'til the morning light
It's such a long way home, and you'd only be alone
Ah, come on girl, why don't you spend the night?

Why don't you spend the night? Somehow it seems so right
Why does it have to end so soon, please stay 'til the morning light
It's such a long way home, and you'd only be alone
Ah, come on now, why don't you spend the night?

Lyrics by Bob McDill.
Recorded by Ronnie Milsap.
