Night time is the right time
for our love,
for our love
You are the woman
I'm dreaming of

(Chorus):
It's the right time,
yes the right time
for our love,
for our love-
It's the right time,
yes the right time
for our love,
for our love

Hold me close and kiss my lips,
there's no feeling quite like this,
Cuddling by the fire,
you're my one and true desire,
Never let me go
Let your feelings show

(Chorus):
It's the right time,
yes the right time
for our love,
for our love
It's the right time,
yes the right time
for our love,
for our love

Dancin' in the night,
with you is oh so right
Hold me oh so near,
I love you so much my dear
This love will last forever,
Let's always stay together

(Chorus):
It's the right time,
yes the right time
for our love,
for our love
It's the right time,
yes the right time
for our love,
for our love :cool:

Thanks to Troy, this was edited. I had run it all together like I was writing a letter. Now I know how to do it.

With some awesome instrumentation and a catchy melody, this could be really good. The lines are a bit cliché but in the commercial world that could be just fine.

Hey Marty!

Would you consider revising the chorus so the rhymes alternate like:

(Chorus):
It's the right time,
for our love,
yes the right time
for our love
It's the right time,
for our love,
yes the right time
for our love

Doing it this way, the chorus rhyme scheme differs from the verse sections'. Hmmm... But maybe you envision that the repeated lines would be sung like an echo. So backing vocals echo each of the lead singer's lines?

Troy

I think it could work either way Troy. I had not thought of background singers echoing the lines but that sounds like a good idea!

If my dear friend only wants to add music to one more song, I ask for him to consider this one called, "The right time" as it is one of my favorites. Please observe the comments of Troy Douglas below about a possible re-arrangement of the lyrics. You could choose which would work best for the song.:)

Nice job, Owen and Marty!

Very nice of you, Owen, to bring Marty's lyrics to life with your music and vocals.

Congrats, gentlemen!

Troy

It is totally up to you Owen! If perhaps you could improve on the vocals, then you are free to give it a try. ;)

Actually Marty, I was asking Troy whether he was interested in doing the vocals, as he is a far better singer.

OOPS! Sorry Owen, I did not realize that you were asking him. Yes, I would love to hear what Troy could contribute to the song. You had a great idea. I just misunderstood. :shock:

Thanks Alan and Pat!

Yes, definitely an old-fashioned feel to it. Just seemed to fit Marty's lyric, and we're both pretty pleased with how it came out.

Thanks for the listen!

Marty,

I listened to "The Right Time".  With a good production and better vocalist, you'd have a lounge tune that might be picked up by music libraries looking for that type of song, and most are.
