Spirits in the Night
Crazy Janey and her Mission Man
Were back in the alley, they were tradin' hands
Along came Wild Billy with his friend, G-Man
All duded up for Saturday night

Well Billy slammed on his coaster brakes
And said, "Anybody wanna go on up to Greasy Lake?
It's about a mile down on the dark side of Route 88
I got a bottle of rose, so let's try it

"We'll pick up Hazy Davy and Killer Joe
And I'll take you all out to where the gypsy angels go
They're built like light
And they dance like spirits in the night"

In the night
Oh you don't know what they can do to ya
Spirits in the night
All night
Oh stand right up now and let it shoot through ya

Well now wild Billy was a crazy cat
And he shook some dust out of his coonskin cap
He said, "Try some of this, it'll show you where it's at
Or at least it'll help you really feel it"

But by the time we made it up to Greasy Lake
I had my head out of the window, Janey's fingers were in the cake
Well I think I really dug her, I was just to loose to fake
I said, "I'm hurt," she said, "Honey, let me heal it"

And we danced all night to a soul fairy band
And she kissed me oh just right like only an angel can
She felt so nice
Just as soft as a spirit in the night

All night
Oh Janey don't know what she do to ya
Spirit in the night
All night
Oh step right up now and let it shoot through me

Now the night was bright and the stars threw light
On Billy and Davy dancing in the moonlight
They were down near the water in a stoned mud fight
Killer Joe gone passed out on the lawn

Well now Hazy Davy got really hurt
He ran into the lake in just his socks and his shirt
Me and Crazy Janey were making love in the dirt
Singing our birthday song

Janey said it was time to go
So we closed our eyes and said goodbye to gypsy angel row
Felt so right
Spirits in the night

All night
Oh you don't know what they can do to ya
Spirits in the night
All night
Oh stand right up now and let it shoot through ya
Spirits in the night
All night
Oh you don't know what they can do to ya
Spirits in the night
All night
Oh stand right up now and let it shoot through ya
Spirits in the night
