Roy Orbison – Nite Life lyrics

When shadows fall, the day is done
The mountain tops hide the setting sun
The magic of the night is here
For all young lovers, far and near

Nite life, ooh, la, la, la, stars coming out to play
Nite life, rah, rah, rah, rah
See how they light the milky way
At the end of day, nite life

Nite life, aye, aye, aye, aye, look at the moon above
Nite life, ma, ma, ma, ma
It's time to fall in love
Yeah, so come on, nite life

Nite life, no need to be blue
The moon and the stars, all belong to you
Nite life is so much fun
When you're in love and love is young

Nite life, tra, la, la, la, laughing and painting the town
Nite life, ha, ha ha, ha
It's just a merry go round
When the sun goes down, nite life
