I can just about get through the day,

But the night makes me nervous

Not for any reason.

Except maybe that it catches you unaware,

And follows you the way a woman follows

When she wants something..

(music interlude)

I've been in every kind of night,

Why, I shouldn't be afraid of darkness,

But for some reason, the night makes me nervous.

(music to the end)
