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

[Chorus:]
Whoa, you say you're looking for the time
Well, I'm a workin' girl, you just wasted mine
If you ain't got money, take it down the avenue
'cause I ain't got time for you, until daylight

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

[Chorus]

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
He lived so wrong he's doin' ninety-nine
Oh, I wish you had the money and I had the time
'Cuz I'd just let those limos slide on by

[Chorus: x2]
