Lookin' 'round for a feelin'
I love the rhythm and blues
The place was rockin' and reelin'
I thought I'd shake me loose

The band was pumpin' Motown
Lord, how they could play
The girls a-started singing
Rock the night away

By the midnight hour
They could've raised the dead
They were takin' it higher
Higher, higher, higher, ringin' in my head

Lay it down
(Lay it down)
Lay it down
(Lay it)

Lay it down
(Lay it down)
Lay it down

Whiskey, wine and women
They get me through the night
I ain't lookin' for trouble
I ain't lookin' to fight

A little vertical persuasion
Would do me right
What I'm really needin'
Ah, double shot tonight

By the midnight hour
We were on our way
She was takin' it higher
Higher, higher, higher, then I heard her say

Lay it down
(Lay it down)
Lay it down
(Lay it, lay it)

Lay it down
(Lay it down)
Lay it down

By the midnight hour
We were on our way
She was takin' it higher
Higher, higher, higher, then I heard her say
Baby

Lay it down
(Lay it down)
Lay it down
(Lay it)

Lay it down
(La' la' lay it down)
Lay it down
(La' la' la' lay it)

Lay it down
(Lay it down)
Lay it down
(La' la' la' la' lay it)

Lay it down
(Lay it down)
Lay it down
