Jay Leno & Damon Leigh (NBC Burbank, 1997)

 

           

I lay down with miles to go before I sleep

So bone-tired I can barely keep awake

But instead of cutting logs or counting sheep

I'll be dreaming of my long-impending break

 

I have fantasized a thousand nights or more

In the misty morning dark before the dawn

Of a curtain rising to a mighty roar

As "The Chin Man" turns to me and says "You're On!"

 

I'm gonna do 'Jay Leno… Tonight!'

I've climbed aboard my Hollywood flight

It's surreal or so it seems… is this only in my dreams?

I'm gonna do 'Jay Leno… Tonight!'

 

See me stride up to the microphone and sing

I've rehearsed my début night my whole life long

And like Elton… John or Elvis… Garth or Sting

I'll deliver what I hope will be your song

 

I'm gonna do 'Jay Leno… Tonight!'

I've climbed aboard my Hollywood flight

It's surreal or so it seems… is this only in my dreams?

I'm gonna do 'Jay Leno… Tonight!'

 

When my grand finale note begins to fade

And I've left you feeling you ain't heard enough

I'll be smiling as I glide across that stage

And Jay Leno shakes my hand and says "Good stuff!"

 

I'm gonna do 'Jay Leno… Tonight!'

I've climbed aboard my Hollywood flight

It's surreal or so it seems… is this only in my dreams?

I'm gonna do 'Jay Leno… Tonight!'

 

It's surreal or so it seems…

Is this only in my dreams?

I'm gonna do 'Jay Leno… Tonight!'
