Up all night
Ooh za za
Ooh staying up all night

African jungle
Big city street
The only real difference is in
The people you meet

Up all night
Ooh za za
Ooh staying up all night

It's an agreeable town
It's neat and sedate
Why even the muggers are off
The streets by eight

Up all night
Ooh za za
Ooh staying up all night
Say it ain't so Joe, say it ain't so Joe

Polite and well spoken
Well heeded and well sane
They know they're alive
When they start to feel pain

You're staying up all night
Ooh za za
Ooh staying up all night
Up all night
Ooh za za
Ooh staying up all night
Say it ain't so Joe, say it ain't so Joe

Big city jungle
African street
The only real difference is in
The people they meet
