While the poor people sleepin'
With the shade on the light
While the poor people sleepin'
All the stars come out at night

While the poor people sleepin'
With the shade on the light
While the poor people sleepin'
All the stars come out at night

After closing time
At the guernsey fair
I detect the el supremo
From the room at the top of the stairs

Well I've been around the world
And I've been in the Washington Zoo
And in all my travels as the facts unravel
I've found this to be true

While the poor people sleepin'
With the shade on the light
While the poor people sleepin'
All the stars come out at night

While the poor people sleepin'
With the shade on the light
While the poor people sleepin'
All the stars come out at night

They got the house on the corner
With the rug inside
They got the booze they need
All that money can buy

They got the shapely bodys
They got the Steely Dan T-Shirt
And for the coup-de-gras
Theyre outrageous

Honey, let the girl you
While the poor people sleepin'
With the shade on the light
While the poor people sleepin'
All the stars come out at night

While the poor people sleepin'
With the shade on the light
While the poor people sleepin'
All the stars come out at night

Showbiz kids making movies of themselves
You know they dont give a fuck about anybody else
You know you gonna

While the poor people sleepin'
With the shade on the light
While the poor people sleepin'
With the shade on the light
While the poor people sleepin'
All the stars come out at night

While the poor people sleepin'
With the shade on the light
While the poor people sleepin'
All the stars come out at night
