Liza: Tonight you'll be a bloomin' swell
In fancy dress disguise, ah!
Jim: Although in marble 'alls I dwell,
I won't forget my Liza.
Elphin: Without my darling boy I fear
I shall be rather lonely;
Dick: But please to recollect my dear,
This is for one night only.
All: For one night only, only for tonight.
Does the plan of action
Cause dissatisfaction?
Though lovers it may sever,
Yet all will soon come right,
We'll simply smile and wait a little while,
Then the parties courted
Will be reassorted,
It's not for ever and ever,
But only, only, only for tonight.
   
Jim: Then you're my gal, I understand,
The business is a rum one;
Elphin: He seems an honest fellow, and
I've got to go with someone.
Dick: Remember I'm engaged to you;
Altho' it may seem funny.
Liza: I like a nice young party who
Can chuck about his money.
All: For one night only, only for tonight.
Does the plan of action
Cause dissatisfaction?
Though lovers it may sever,
Yet all will soon come right,
We'll simply smile and wait a little while,
Then the parties courted
Will be reassorted,
It's not for ever and ever,
But only, only, only for tonight.
