Tekst en muziek: Jim Steinman
(1977)






Boy: On a hot summer night
Would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses
Girl: Will he offer me his mouth
Boy: Yes
Girl: Will he offer me his teeth
Boy: Yes
Girl: Will he offer me his jaws
Boy: Yes
Girl: Will he offer me his hunger
Boy: Yes
Girl: Again
Will he offer me his hunger
Boy: Yes
Girl: And will he starve without me
Boy: Yes
Girl: And does he love me
Boy: Yes
Girl: Yes
Boy: On a hot summer night
Would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses
Girl: Yes
Boy: I bet you say that to all the boys



It was a hot summer night and the beach was burning
There was a fog crawling over the sand
When I listen to your heart, I hear the whole world turning
I see the shooting stars
Falling through your trembling hands



Well, you were licking your lips and your lipstick shining
I was dying just to ask for a taste
Oh, we were lying together in a silver lining
By the light of the moon
You know there’s not another moment
Not another moment
Not another moment to waste



Oh well, you hold me so close that my knees grow weak
But my soul is flying high above the ground
I’m trying to speak, but no matter what I do
I just can’t seem to make any sound



And then you took the words right out of my mouth
Oh, it must have been while you were kissing me
You took the words right out of my mouth
Oh, and I swear it’s true
I was just about to say I love you
Love you



And then you took the words right out of my mouth
Oh, it must have been while you were kissing me
You took the words right out of my mouth
Oh, and I swear it’s true
I was just about to say I love you
Love you



Now my body is shaking like a wave on the water
And I guess that I’m beginning to grin
Oh, we’re finally alone and we can do what we want to
The night is young
And no one gonna know where you
No one gonna know where you
No one’s gonna know where you’ve been



Oh, you were licking your lips and your lipstick shining
I was dying just to ask for a taste
Oh, we were lying together in a silver lining
By the light of the moon
You know there’s not another moment to waste



And then you took the words right out of my mouth
Oh, it must have been while you were kissing me
You took the words right out of my mouth
Oh, and I swear it’s true
I was just about to say I love you
Love you



And then you took the words right out of my mouth
Oh, it must have been while you were kissing me
You took the words right out of my mouth
Oh, and I swear it’s true
I was just about to say I love you
Love you



And then you took the words right out of my mouth
It must have been while you were kissing me
Oh, you took the words right out of my mouth
It must have been while you were kissing me
