December 1963 (Oh What a Night) Lyrics
Late December back in '63.
What a very special time for me,
'Cause I remember what a night.
Oh, what a night.
You know, I didn't even know her name,
But I was never gonna be the same.
What a lady. What a night.

According to the co-writer and longtime group member Bob Gaudio, the song's lyrics were originally set in 1933 with the title "December 5th, 1933," and celebrated the repeal of Prohibition, but the lyrics were changed at the urgings of Frankie Valli and lyricist Parker to reposition the song as a nostalgic remembrance of a young man's first affair with a woman, and, more specifically, Gaudio's courtship with his wife, Judy Parker. from Wikipedia

It’s definitely about a one night stand ... brings back memories

I thought 'ended much too soon' refers to premature ejaculation

It's about courtship with his wife. "Didn't know her name" means he was interested but he didn't meet her yet. The rest of it is how emotions made him feel. The night ended before he could meet her. It's a song written by one of the band members and his future wife.

It's about a dude re-calling a one-night stand. ("You know, I didn't even know her name.") He talks about remembering what she looks like and how she walked to the bed and stuff. "I, I get a funny feeling when she walks into the room", "She was everything I'd dreamed she's be"), etc. He then talks about the disappointing morning after. "It ended much too soon."
Anyone else agree?
