• Spirit in the Night

  • Crazy Janey and her mission man were back in the alley tradin' hands
    `Long came Wild Billy with his friend G-man all duded up for Saturday night
    Billy slammed on his coaster brakes and said anybody wanna go on up to Greasy Lake
    It's about a mile down on the dark side of Route 88
    I got a bottle of rose so let's try it
    We'll pick up Hazy Davy and Killer Joe and I'll take you all out to where the gypsy angels go
    They're built like light
    And they dance like spirits in the night (all night) in the night (all night)
    Oh you don't know what they can do to you
    Spirits in the night, in the night
    Stand up now and let it shoot through you
    Well now Wild Billy was a crazy cat and he shook some dust out of his coonskin cap
    He said "Trust some of this it'll show you where you're at or at least it'll
    help you really feel it"
    By the time we made it up to Greasy Lake I had my head out the window and Janey's fingers in the cake
    I think I really dug her `cause I was too loose to fake
    I said "I'm hurt" she said "Honey let me heal it"
    And we danced all night to a soul fairy band
    And she kissed me just right like only a lonely angel can
    She felt just right just like as sweet as a spirit in the night
    In the night baby don't know what she do to you
    Spirits in the night, in the night
    Stand up now and let her shoot right through you
    Now the night grew bright and the stars threw light in Billy and Davy
    Dancin' in the moonlight
    We were down near the water in a stone mud fight
    Killer Joe'd passed out on the lawn
    Well Hazy Davy got really hurt he crawled into the lake in just his socks and a shirt
    Me and Crazy Janey were makin' love in the dirt singin' our birthday songs
    Janey said "Hey little brother don't you think it's time now we go"
    So we closed our eyes and said goodbye to gypsy angel row felt just right
    Together we moved like spirits in the night, all night
    Baby don't know what it do to you
    Spirits in the night, all night
    Stand up now and let it shoot right through you
