Nightwatchman Submit Correct Lyrics

I'm the night watchman
I make the rounds
I'm the night watchman
I gotta keep my nose to the ground

Oh, this ain't no job for a man like me
Yeah, I got potential, I can be just what you need
Yeah, you got to think about the pros and cons
Listen, you could be right and you could be wrong

I'm the night watchman
I am security
I'm the night watchman
How safe do you want to be?

Well, I just sit around at night and listen to the radio
Yeah, if I get real bored I may have a little smoke
I got a permit to wear this 38
But listen, my life's worth more than the minimum wage

I'm the night watchman
I make the rounds
I'm the night watchman
I gotta keep my nose to the ground

I'm the night watchman
I am security
I'm the night watchman
How safe do you want to be?

I'm the night watchman
I'm the night watchman
How safe do you want to be?
