Jay Ferguson – Night Shift lyrics

Ain't nobody watching daytime movies
Unless they've never been to bed
They have to go with the midnight show instead

Everybody climbing higher, higher
Ain't nobody underground
They keep it covered 'til they see the sun go down

Well, nine to five is fine (Nine to five)
But if the choice was mine (Choice was mine)
I'd rather spend my time on the night shift

Ain't nobody counting daylight savings
They've already spent it all
They only fear they'll never hear that wake-up call

Now some folks building bigger, better
Don't know how to cut it down
But after midnight, it's the only game in town

Now all the money's spent (All the money)
And it wasn't worth the rent (Wasn't worth it)
Ooh, it's time they went on the night shift
Take it to the night shift

So, won't you meet me after sundown, baby?
I can see you've been before
I heard a rumor we could run down, baby

The night shift
Is the right shift
The night shift
Is the right shift

So we got all night to rock (Let it rock)
But after we punch the clock (Punch the clock)
Daylight is such a shock
After the night shift
But it's the right shift, baby
The night shift
The night shift

I feel it on the night shift
I'm talkin' 'bout the night shift
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
The night shift
The night shift

The night shift
The night shift
No, no, no, no
The night shift
The night shift
