On A Night Like This

Chuck McDermott has crafted a wide variety of music in his career, but he reaches a whole other level with this nobly ambitious effort. It was conceived during the pandemic and often feels like a soothing hymn to rise above it. It's a plea for wisdom, tolerance, and endurance in original songs such as the haunting "38 Degrees and Raining" and the softly ambient "On a Night Like This".

LYRICS: On A Night Like This

 

Well it’s a cruel cruel world, anything could happen to you

On the street alone anything could happen to you

On a night like this

To a woman like you on the street alone on a night like this

Since you’re goin’ in my direction let me offer my protection

It looks like you’re a rookie, no New York city Cookie

On a night like this

 

Please wait for me, please wait for me

I’ll be good for you, be a handy tool

On a night like this

Hey baby baby don’t you think maybe

We should make a couple, keep us outta trouble

On a night like this

 

Now at the don’t walk sign, someone should be talking to you

On the street alone anything could happen to you

On a night like this

To a woman like you on the street alone

On a night like this

Hey baby baby, don’t you think maybe

We should make a couple keep us outta trouble

On a night like this ………please wait for me, please wait for me
