Hopefully A Few Things Have Changed Since 1984

I grew up listening to the band Chicago and some of their songs bring back vivid high-school era memories even though Peter Cetera was long gone by the time I hit high school.  Was cleaning out the office the other day and found their Greatest Hits 1982-1989 CD, which I promptly stuck into the CD player in my car in a fit of nostalgia.  A couple of the songs still made me very happy (hey, no judging...I am who I am) but the lyrics of Stay The Night made me do a double-take.  I apparently wasn't paying attention back then; that's all I can figure.  What the hell??

I don't want you to misunderstand me
I just wanna say what's on my mind
No need to hit me with an attitude
Because I haven't got the time
I want you to know one thing's for certain
I surely love your company
And I won't take no if that's your answer
At least that's my philosophy
Stay the night
There's room enough here for two
Stay the night
I'd like to spend it with you
Stay the night
Why don't we call it a day?
No one can stop us
Nothing is in the way
Have some friendly conversation
And if you still don't have a clue
Unless there's something else you've got in mind
We've got better things to do
Stay the night
There's room enough here for two
Stay the night
I'd like to spend it with you
Stay the night
Why don't we call it a day?
No one can stop us
Nothing is in the way
Just to have you near me
Here by my side
Just to have you near me
And when I get next to your body
Just to have you near me
Something I can tell you
Make it perfectly clear
We're gonna have a very good time
Stay the night
There's room enough here for two
Stay the night
I'd like to spend it with you
Stay the night
Why don't we call it a day?
No one can stop us
And nothing is in the way
No one can stop us
And nothing is in the way
I don't wanna stay
Stay the night
Stay the night
Stay the night
