Now, I work this corner from eleven to five
And the hands get cold around midnight
And you askin' me if I've got the time
Well, I don't know but you're wastin' mine tonight

Whoa, you say you're looking for the time
Hey, I'm a workin' girl, you just wasted mine
And if you ain't got money, take it down the avenue
'Cause I ain't got the time for you, until daylight

At the sidewalk ice is cold as steel
And I'm not Dorothy I can't click my heels
And one of these days I'll move to L.A.
Where the nights stay warm and the boys come out to play

Whoa, you say you're looking for the time
Hey, I'm a workin' girl, you just wasted mine
And if you ain't got money, take it down the avenue
'Cause I ain't got the time for you, until daylight

Don't the snow light up the midnight sky
The snow plows roll and the limos fly
Don't cha know it's just another night

Oh, once I had a lover who treated me right
And he lived so wrong, he's doin' ninety-nine
And I wish you had the money, and I had the time
I'd just let those limos slide on by

Whoa, you say you're looking for the time
Hey, I'm a workin' girl, you just wasted mine
And if you ain't got money, take it down the avenue
'Cause I ain't got the time for you

And it's whoa, you say you're looking for the time
Hey, I'm a workin' girl, you just wasted mine
And if you ain't got money, take it down the avenue
'Cause I ain't got the time for you, until daylight

You come around the daylight, until daylight
You come around the daylight, until daylight
