Lyrics


(Ah! Dressin' up, dressin' up, for you, for you)
(Dressin' up, dressin' up, for you, for you. Ah!)

Saucer of milk
Table for two
You wanna pet my kitty
You're such a dirty doggy

It's your lucky night
'Cause I'm in the mood
Oh, I'm feeling spicy
I'm feelin' real naughty

Pick a part, you dream it up
A dark vixen, a Lolita
Oh boy, tell me your fantasy
Tonight's the night
I'm dressin' up for you

I could tell you're obsessed
By your shortness of breath
Ooh, my Cookie Monster
Wants a taste test

Be a good boy
And I'll show you the rest
Ooh, my little voyeur
Wants to play explorer

Pick a part, you dream it up
Librarian, dominatrix
Oh boy, tell me your fantasy
Tonight's the night (tonight's the night)

(Chorus)
Tonight I'm gonna come alive
Make you forget about your nine-to-five
Are you ready for your blood to rise?
Tonight's the night I'm dressin' up for you (dressin' up)

You're getting hot
So let's call the nurse
Ooh, I feel a fever
Let's take your temperature

Better behave
Or a police officer
Will have to hold you down
Give you what you deserve

Pick a part, you dream it up
Use your imagination
Oh boy, I'll be your fantasy
Tonight's the night (tonight's the night)

(Chorus)
Tonight I'm gonna come alive
Make you forget about your nine-to-five
Are you ready for your blood to rise?
Tonight's the night I'm dressin' up for you

Tonight I'm gonna come alive
Make you forget about your nine-to-five
Are you ready for your blood to rise?
Tonight's the night I'm dressin' up for you

Tied
Tight
Tip
Teasing
Push
Pull
Pressure
Pleasing

Beads of sweat drip down your neck
Breathing deep, gaining speed, 'bout to peak
Trembling
Trembling
Trembling

(Chorus)
Tonight I'm gonna come alive
Make you forget about your nine-to-five
Are you ready for your blood to rise?
Tonight's the night I'm dressin' up for you

Tonight I'm gonna come alive
Make you forget about your nine-to-five
Are you ready for your blood to rise?
Tonight's the night I'm dressin' up for you

Dressin' up
I'm dressin' up for you
I'm dressin' up
I'm dressin' up
I'm dressin' up
I'm dressin' up
I'm dressin' up
For you
I'm dressin' up
I'm dressin' up for you
