Foreigner – Night Life lyrics

Wake up in time to see the sun going down
Turn on the six o'clock news, see what's happening in this town
I take a walk down to the corner
I meet those bad girls hanging 'round, never doing what they oughta

Ooh yeah, I get caught up in the action
Gotta find the main attraction now
Gotta get some satisfaction, you better take me to the heart of that

Night life, looking for some night life
Need a little night life, living in the daylight
Just don't agree with me, ooh night life

Stealing through the night like a wolf on the prowl
Not a bird, not a plane, I'm just a mean old night owl
Watch me, hit, run, gotta move on
Going wild in the night 'cause I'm hooked on the neon

Ooh yeah, I'm looking for some action
I gotta find my main attraction now
cause I need some satisfaction, oo, won't you take me 2 the heart of that

Night life, a little bit of night life
Ooh I need some night life, full of bright lights and noise
Time to separate the men from the boys
Night life, a little bit of night life, ooh I need some
Night life, full of bright lights and noise
It's time to separate the men from the boys

Night life, ain't talkin' about no high life cabaret
Night life, I need something, just something to put me away
Night life, you holdin' me and the noise
Time to separate the men from the boys, night life it can get kinda ruff
Night life, we'll see who's standing when the sun comes up
Night life, yeah the skyscrapers, but the night life is a formal attraction
Night life, yeah, c'mon, c'mon, night life, ooh ooh-ooh
Night life, anything goes, night life, having the time of my
Night life, all in a day, night life, we're all crazy baby
Night life, you got, ooh-ooh ooh, you better got in the night life, hey
