Hey mister, can you lend me a dollar?
I'm not like the rest of these bums
I just need it to tide me over
Till the mayor comes
He promised me that he'd give me my house back
We just got off, off the phone

Don't walk away, I can tell your future
Don't walk away, don't you know you're talking to

The queen, the queen of the night
I was the queen, the queen of the night
Everybody knew my name, everybody knew my face
Everybody treated me like I owned the place
I was the mistress of the moonlight
The queen of the night

When I was a girl, I met the Prince of Wales
On a yacht in New York harbor
He told me I was pretty and I danced with him
He was a gentleman
He kissed my hand and gave me a dollar
Mister, can you make it two?

Hey, don't walk away, I can tell your future
Don't walk away, don't you know you're talking to

The queen, the queen of the night
I was the queen, the queen of the night
Everybody knew my name, everybody knew my face
Everybody treated me like I owned the place
I was the mistress of the moonlight
The queen of the night

I like your lavender limousine
I have a car just like that
My driver cracked it up last night
I think he drinks, you know
But I just can't let him go

He'd drive through a wall of fire for me
Sometimes he treats me mean
He forgets that I'm the queen
I sure like that Limousine, mister

Don't walk away, I can tell your future
Don't walk away, don't you know you're talking to

The queen, the queen of the night
I was the queen, the queen of the night
I can see your future, mister
I can see it in your face
I'll be riding in that limo
You'll be standing in my place

You know, it's different in the moonlight
I was the queen of the night
You know, it's different in the moonlight
I was the queen of the night
You know, it's different in the moonlight
I was the queen of the night

You know, it's different in the moonlight
I was the queen of the night
You know, it's different in the moonlight
I was the queen of the night
