Bruce Springsteen – Spirit In The Night lyrics

Crazy Janey and her Mission Man
Were back in the alley tradin' hands
'Long came Wild Billy with his friend, G-Man
All duded up for Saturday night

Well, Billy slammed on his coaster brakes
And said “Anybody wanna go on up to Greasy Lake?”
“It's about a mile down on the dark side of Route 88”
“I got a bottle of rose, so let's try it”

We'll pick up Hazy Davy and Killer Joe
And I'll take you all out to where the gypsy angels go
They're built like light

Woo, and they dance like spirits in the night
(All night) in the night (All night)
Oh, you don't know what they can do to ya
Spirits in the night
(All night) oh, yea, in the night (All night)
Stand up now and let it shoot through ya

Well now Wild Billy was a crazy cat
And he shook some dust out of his coonskin cap
He said "Trust some of this it'll show you where you're at
Or at least it'll help you really feel it"

By the time we made it up to Greasy Lake
I had my head out the window and Janey's fingers were in the cake
I think I really dug her 'cause I was too loose to fake
I said "I'm hurt" she said "Honey, let me heal it"

And we danced all night to a soul fairy band
And she kissed me just right, like only a lonely angel can

She felt so nice, just as soft as a spirit in the night
(All night) in the night (All night)
Oh, Janey don't know what she can do to you
Like a Spirit in the night
(All night) oh, all night (All night)
Stand right up and let her shoot through me

(Musical interlude)

Now the night was bright
And the stars threw light on Billy and Davy
Dancin' in the moonlight
They were down near the water in a stone mud fight
Killer Joe gone passed out on the lawn

Well now, Hazy Davy got really hurt
He ran into the lake, in just his socks and a shirt
Me and Crazy Janey were makin' love in the dirt
Singin' our birthday songs

Janey said "It was time to go”
So we closed our eyes and said goodbye
To Gypsy Angel Row
Felt so right

Together we moved like spirits in the night
(All night) in the night (All night)
Oh, you don’t know what they can do to ya
Just spirits in the night
(All night) oh, all night (All Night)
Oh, stand right up and let it shoot through ya
Like a spirit in the night
(All night) oh, all night (All night)
All night (All night)
All night (All night)
All night (All night)
Oh, all night (All night)
Oooo, night, night, night, night, ooo,ooo
All night
Feelin’ good tonight
Sure is tonight
