Foghat – Night Shift lyrics

Working on a night shift
High on a 'fore day drive
I'm energized from sundown to sunrise
And I'll sleep from nine to five
Shadows fallin' all down the line
Get ready 'cause it's night shift time

Living, loving
Searching high and low
Feel the fire
I'm hooked to a live wire
And I can't let go
I got a feeling that I can't mistake
Sun rises and I'm still awake

I'll play my music
I don't mind working overtime
And if I lose it I'll come to you
And you'll give me peace of mind

~ Rod - Solo ~

I get home early in the morning
I love to get next to you
You touch me and you thrill me
You know what to do

~ Dave - Scat Solo ~

Working on a night shift
You tell me something's got to give
I don't mind 'cause I'm feelin' fine
And I love the life I live
Shadows fallin' on down the line
Get ready 'cause it's night shift time
