​Nite Owl

This song is by Gene Chandler and appears on the album The Duke Of Earl (1962).

Ten o'clock, ten-thirty
Eleven o'clock, eleven-thirty
Curfew time

Night owl strolling down the
Street about the break of day
Oh, night owl, listen, boy
What you think your mama gonna say
Hey, hey, hey

Wait till you get in the door
Mama told you once before
Whoa, whoa, night owl

Night owl strolling with his
Keys swinging in his hand
Oh, owl, the night owl strutting
Up the stairs like a natural man
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Boy, you must be out your mind
Ain't you heard of curfew time
Whoa, whoa, night owl

Your daddy told you long ago
Not to come in late no more
Running over town just like a clown

But you think that he's a square
And you feel you've been everywhere
Wait till tomorrow, you'll sit down

Oh, night owl strolling with
His dark glasses on his eyes
Oh, owl, night owl, listen, boy
Don't you dare tell daddy no lie
Hey, hey, hey

I said that you were such a silly jerk
Your daddy ought to make you work
Whoa, whoa, night owl

Your daddy told you long ago
Not to come in late no more
Running over town just like a clown

But you think that he's a square
And you feel you've been everywhere
Wait till tomorrow, you'll sit down

Oh, night owl strolling with
His dark glasses on his eyes
Oh, owl, night owl, listen, boy
Don't you dare tell daddy no lie
Hey, hey, hey

I said that you were such a silly jerk
Your daddy ought to make you work
Whoa, whoa, night owl

Whoa, night owl
You better come in, boy
It's getting late, I told you
Bout staying out all times of night
Hey, hey, hey
