Lyrics:
(From WiwiBloggs)

Oh, everyone’s got their problems
There’s always something on your mind
Oh, but tonight we ain’t gotta solve them
For tonight let’s leave them all behind

Oh, do what you what you what you want
Do what you what you what you want
Do what you what you what you want
Oh get on it, ooh get on it

I don’t want tomorrow
Oh baby, tonight’s so good
Tonight’s so good
This is one tough act to follow
Oh baby, tonight’s so good
Forget tomorrow – we can do tonight again

Oh oh oh oh
We can do tonight again
Oh oh oh oh
We can do tonight

Oh, some people might call you crazy
They say we only live for fun
They may be right but only maybe
I can guarantee what we got is what we want
(Ain’t that right?)

Do what you what you what you want
Do what you what you what you want
Do what you what you what you want
Oh get on it, ooh get on it

I don’t want tomorrow
Oh baby, tonight’s so good
Tonight’s so good
This is one tough act to follow
Oh baby, tonight’s so good
Forget tomorrow – we can do tonight again

Oh oh oh oh
We can do tonight again
Oh oh oh oh
Oh, we can do tonight
Oh oh oh oh
We can do tonight again
Oh oh oh oh

Do what you what you what you want
Do what you what you what you want
Do what you what you what you want
Oh, get on it, ooh get on it

I don’t want tomorrow
Oh baby, tonight’s so good
Tonight’s so good
This is one tough act to follow
Oh baby, tonight’s so good
Forget tomorrow – we can do tonight agaaaain
Yeaaaah
Oooh
Tonight’s so good
This is one tough act to follow
Oh baby, tonight’s so good
Forget tomorrow – we can do tonight again

Oh oh oh oh
We can do tonight again
Oh oh oh oh
Forget tomorrow – we can do tonight again

  1. Really catchy, contemporary entry which proves can be good even if produced in 72 hours!
    Australia has my full support for their debut entry.
    If the live performance can convey the energy of the song in the right way I can see an easy top 10 or even win for Aussies !
    GOOD LUCK!

  2. “Guy has been married to his wife for seven years and has two sons.”
    OMG how old is he?😊
    He seems So down to earth and I like his song😊
    Good Luck Guy

    Ps:It would be hillarious to see the UK exchanging 12 pts with Australia😉

  3. Off Topic — I never knew Il Volo had been together so long… look at the baby Il Volo

  4. Australia has very “Anglo-Saxonic” entry (like my brother said :) )! This may fail or do well just because it is quite outstanding for ESC! Don’t know how well it will do in ESC as UK hasn’t prepared us to it so far :P :) Me myself I like it 9/12! Australia will recieve a lot of “welcome points” ! Anyways their victory would be a mess IMO!

    • The right term would be that this sounds awfully very american. It is not going anywhere near the top-10 and I seriously doubt anyone but the UK will vote for them.

      As for the odds bringing Australia to 4th place, please don’t make me laugh. Like it’s the first time british agencies ridiculously over-estimate an anglo-saxon entry. Molly was also going to bring the house down last year. Except she didn’t.
