Night Work - Scissor Sisters

When I was a young boy
I'd pretend that I had a job
My daddy sat pretty while my momma
married into the mob
I dreamed one day I'd be livin'
off the system for free
But dreams come true honey
welcome to my reality

So I sleep all day
And wake myself in the shadows
(Gotta get up, gotta get up)
I gotta catch that train
by midnight for my

Night work
Gotta do the night work
Punch that clock
and break all the numbers
Night work
Gotta do the night work
Weekday nine-to-five shift is over

I didn't have a penny
No I couldn't cut a check with a blade
I used to have the shakes
But now they're good
at getting me paid

I sleep all day
But I break my back in the moonlight
(Never enough, it's never enough)
Gotta cash that check
by midnight for my

Night work
Gotta do the night work
Punch that clock
and break all the numbers
Night work
Gotta do the night work
Weekday nine-to-five shift is over

And when the whistle blows
And your body can't take it no more
You gotta keep on moving
Remember this is what you asked for

Night work
Gotta do the night work
Punch that clock
and break all the numbers
Night work
Gotta do the night work
Weekday nine-to-five shift is over
