Phoebe Snow – I Don't Want The Night To End lyrics

Oh mommy mommy
Oh mommy mommy, yeah
I stood too near the gaslight
And I cried
The dirty city mist
Had seeped too deep inside
It took me on some kind
Of heady ride
They told me charlie parker died
And I don't want the night to end
And I don't want the night to end

Oh daddy daddy
Oh daddy daddy
Waiting half my life
On platforms underground
The other half I wasted
As a desperate clown
My problem now is
That you're not around
In dark delicious dreams of you
I'll drown
And I don't want the night to end

Oh baby baby
Oh baby baby
Wrapped around your soul
Is where I wanna be
But in the night blue music's
All I seem to see
The drunks out in the rain
Down on one knee
And what is to become
Of you and me
And I don't want the night to end
