Los Lobos – Midnight Shift lyrics

If Annie puts her hair up on her head
Paints them lips up bright bright red
Wears that dress that fits real tight
Starts stayin' out 'til the middle of the night
Says that a friend gave her a lift
Well Annie's been workin' on the midnight shift

If she acts a little funny, seems a little strange
Starts spending your money for brand new things
Tells you that she wants to use the car
And never explains what she wants it for
Brother, well there ain't no ifs
Annie's been workin' on the midnight shift

Well early in the morning when the sun comes up
You look at ol' Annie and she looka a little rough
You tell your honey "get outta that bed"
She says "leave me alone, I'm just about dead"
If you've got a good mama that's stayin' at home
You'd better enjoy it 'cause it won't last long
When you think everything's all right
She starts steppin' around in the middle of the night
Brother, there just ain't no ifs
Annie's been workin' on the midnight shift
