NIGHTTIME AND MY BABY
(Norro Wilson - Carmol Taylor - Joe Stampley)
'73 Al Gallico Music, BMI

Well I work like a dog eight hours a day you know I'm nearly dead
When I stop by a bar on my way home and loosen up my head
Lord knows this is a hard life sometimes it'll drive a man crazy
And there ain't no pleasure in this life for me but the nighttime and my baby
Well I'd love to ride all over town in a brand new Cadillac
But on the money that I'm makin' it'll never be like that
But money don't buy everything
Like tender love that I always got at home just a waitin'
And the only pleasure in this life for me is the nighttime and my baby
When I get home she's always got good lovin' saved up for me
Her warm sweet lips will make me forget all of my misery
With her arms wrapped around me all through the long long night
I wake up in the morning feeling right mighty right
Start back to that old job again with the boss standin' over me
Sayin' hurry up you gotta do your work that's the way it's gonna be
Ten hours just keep on draggin' Lord don't you know that this life of mine ain't easy
But I wanna thank you for sendin' me the nighttime and my baby
Yeah I wanna thank you very much for sendin' me the nighttime and my baby
Oh I don't know bout makin' a nap if it wadn't for the nighttime and my baby
I believe I'd lose my mind if I didn't have the nighttime and my baby
