The Lyrics…

Likely as not, there’s been better weather

I feel real sure there have been better times.

Right here tonight, with you all around me

I’m so glad right now is mine.

So honey, tonight, make it alright.

Turn on your smile for me for a while

Take me away from where I have been.

I know you love me,

But love me over again.

You have the way of filling my emotions

Till there’s not a word left in my mind.

Times get so hard, so confusing

You make now a so-much-better time.

So honey, tonight, make it alright.

Turn on your smile for me for a while

Take me away from where I have been.

I know you love me,

But love me over again.
