Just the kind of lady to really set you sailing
On emotion's ocean
Just like a river she's rolling on forever
Got you running around now you've found
She turns the tide of your tired heart
Back to the place where you made a start
She's got the power to burn you up
But she's turning, turning your golden heart

Lady, lady of delight
Lady, lady of the night

Don't stand in the gutter boy, mumble and mutter
That the world ain't treating you right
I'm talking to you - I can prove it too -
You'd better listen to me - I've got a guarantee
Now who told you life was meant to be
Happiness, Light, Love and Free
What made you think you had a right?
You're just a frightened child in the middle of the night

Lady, lady of delight
Lady, lady of the night

Wild dogs baying at the moon
Alley cats singing out of tune
Hoot of owls across the lake -
These are sounds that follow her wake

Don't think you can change her -
I know she'll rearrange you
You might disagree but just you wait and see
You think you're winning but look at the state you're in
Danger - stranger:
Some call her goddess some call her a whore
But she's a sister - a lover - a mother and more
She keeps on coming - she makes it clear
That if you let her in you've got nothing to fear

Lady, lady of delight
Lady, lady of the night
