Spirit in the Night
Crazy Janey and her Mission Man
Were back in the alley tradin' hands
'Long 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
Ooh, 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
Oh, in the night
Stand right up now and let it shoot through ya

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

Well by the time we made it up to Greasy Lake
I had my head out the window and Janey's fingers were in the cake
I think I really dug her, 'cause I was 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 just right like only a lonely angel can
She felt so nice
Just as soft as a spirit in the night

In the night
Oh, Janey don't know what she do to ya
Like a spirit in the night
All night
Stand right up now and let it shoot through me

Well now the night was bright and the stars threw light
On Billy and Davy dancing in the moonlight
They were down near the water having 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 a shirt
Me and Crazy Janey was makin' love in the dirt
Singin' 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
Together we moved like spirits in the night

In the night
Oh you don't know what they can do to ya
Them spirits in the night
All night
Oh stand right up and let it shoot through ya
Like a spirit in the night

All night
All night
All night
All night
All night
All night
...
