lyrics

Night On The Town

Words and Music: Cornelius Eady

I’ve procured some money
And a brand new suit.
C’mon, baby let’s play this night
As sweet as a flute.

Just you and me, baby,
It’s past time to shake and sin.
Cmon, baby let’s find out
What mood the bouncer is in.

Night on the town.

I’ve procured some money
And a brand new hat.
I wanna see your body
Moving under that.

Call up central casting
Tell the electricians to keep
The house lights dim.
Hey, Mr. Bartender,
It looks like your ship come in.

Night on the town.

And if someone don’t like it,
We’ll just turn the other cheek.
You’re bound to be a little wired
After tamping it down all week,
Bound to be a little angry
Watching your life float up the creek.

I’ve procured some money
And a brand new tie.
I wanna see it flying on a dance floor
And that’s no lie.

Sweet, sweet night,
Monday morning just far enough away.
Got the coin of the realm,
Got the home truths at bay.

Night on the town

CE: Acoustic Guitar, Vocal
