Don Covay – Watching The Late Late Show lyrics

(guitar intro)

Another night
Everyone's asleep but me
But I guess I better
See what's on t.v.

Lookin' at the face
Of a clock on the wall
It said, 'Don, your baby
Won't be home again tonight at all'
Just another night
For waitin' for you, honey
Watchin' the late, late, show

I'm just ten cent away
By telephone
But you won't call
You won't bring it home
The ceilins' are easin' down
My walls are movin' in
I got you on my mind
Don't know what picture I'm watching
In the midnight hour
Wanting you in my arms, honey
Watching the late, late, show

What cha tryin' to do drive me crazy?
Babe, I need your company, yeah!
Don't go to strangers
Don't go to strangers
Come on! (come on!)
Come on! (come on!)
Come on! (come on!)
Come home again, yeah!

When you walk in
I won't ask you where you've been
I just wanna hold you
Before you leave again
In the midnight hour
I just wanna be with you
When I'm watching the late, late, show

Watchin' the late, late, show
Watchin' the late late show


Watchin' the late, late, show
Watchin' the late,.
