The Diamond Church Street Choir Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Now the lights go low on the avenue
And the cars pass by in the rain
University boys and the girls fill the bars
While I'm just waiting on the light to change

And the steam heat pours from the bodies on the floor
Down in the basement where the jackknives play
For the hub city girls in their ribbons and their curls
Who know the meaning of staying out late

They know the meaning of staying out very, very late

Singing who does it better than we do?
Them sopranos in Andy Diamond's choir
And whoa, nobody knows
I've been crazy for so long without you

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

They'll find me beat down out in the universe
Though I'll never forget where I'm from
I might have moved away from home and slept out there on my own
A million miles away in the storm

But the beat never leaves and the tempo's a relief
To my aching bones, rambling all over
And if I'm gone for too long I can always hum along
So don't you never forget what I told you

So don't you never forget what I told you

Everybody singing who does it better than we do?
Them sopranos in Andy Diamond's choir
And whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, nobody knows
I've been crazy for so long without you

And just, baby, who sings the rhythm and the blues
So sad, so slow, like I do, like I do?
And oh, ain't it just like you want to?
And oh, ain't it just like you always wanted to?

Every night waiting
So long without you

Baby, who sings it better than we do?
Them sopranos in Andy Diamond's choir
And whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, nobody knows
I've been crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy

And just, baby, who sings the rhythm and the blues
So sad, so slow, like I do
And just like you want to?
