The Cream of Clapton
"Wonderful Tonight" is written by Eric Clapton. It was included on Clapton's 1977 album Slowhand and released as a single the following year. In 1988, Clapton appeared in the Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute concert as a guest guitarist for Dire Straits. The group became his backing musicians for a surprise performance of "Wonderful Tonight" during their set. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mINPdUFVjSE
[Verse 1] It's late in the evening she's wondering what clothes to wear She puts on her make-up and brushes her long blonde hair And then she asks me, "Do I look all right?" And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight" [Verse 2] We go to a party and everyone turns to see This beautiful lady that's walking around with me And then she asks me "Do you feel all right?" And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight" [Bridge] I feel wonderful because I see The love light in your eyes And the wonder of it all Is that you just don't realize how much I love you [Verse 3] It's time to go home now and I've got an aching head So I give her the car keys and she helps me to bed And then I tell her, as I turn out the light I say, "My darling, you were wonderful tonight Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight"
