Work the graveyard shift, stay up all night long
Work the graveyard shift to stay up all night long
You'll wake up someday, find your good gal gone

I said if you don't treat your baby right
I said if you don't treat your baby right
She'll come see me, some lonely night

When the sun goes down
And the moon is gone
That's when I come around
Don't you think I won't

On the graveyard shift, stay up all night long
Wake up someday and find your good gal gone

I drive a Cadillac, rides just like a dream
I drive a Cadillac, rides just like a dream
All the pretty gals, they wanna ride with me

Cause I got what all the women want
Said I got what all the women want
I never say I do when I really don't

When the sun goes down
And the moon is gone
That's when I come around
Don't you think I won't

On the graveyard shift, stay up all night long
Wake up someday and find your good gal gone
