STREETS AT NIGHT (Robert J. Purvis)


What a night this has turned out to be

Said the wrong thing, now you want to go

Well baby, I'm so sorry

Didn't mean to be so slow


[Lady], please don't turn your back on me

It's dark outside and really much too late

You can't walk these streets alone

Young girls don't hang around here on their own


CHORUS:

Better keep off, better keep off

Better keep off, better keep off

Streets at night, streets at night

Better keep off, better keep off

Better keep off, better keep off

Streets at night, streets at night


BRIDGE:

There's danger around every corner

If you listen, you'll find that you may change your mind


Can't we talk it over for awhile?

Who can tell, this evening may survive

Forget that you were leaving

Close the door, come back inside


Baby, take it easy, let it go

Nothing's gonna hurt you while you're here

So say you're gonna stay tonight

And soon the light will slowly reappear


repeat CHORUS


repeat BRIDGE


Streets at night

Streets at night

Streets at night

Streets at night

Streets at night

Streets at night

Streets at night

Streets at night

Streets at night

Streets at night
