Lyrics of

The nightfly

Play the MIDI file View the transcriptions
I'm Lester the nightfly
Hello Baton Rouge
Won't you turn your radio down
Respect the seven second delay we use

So you say there's a race of men in the trees
You're for tough legislation
Thanks for calling
I wait all night for calls like these

An independent station
With jazz and conversation
From the foot of Mount Belzoni
Sweet music
Tonight the night is mine
Late line
Till the sun comes through the skyline

I've got plenty of java

And Chesterfield Kings
But I feel like crying
I wish I had a heart of ice
Heart like ice

If you want your honey
To look super swell
You must spring for that little blue jar
Patton's Kiss and Tell
Kiss and Tell


You'd never believe it
But once there was a time
When love was in my life
I sometimes wonder
What happened to that flame
The answer's still the same
It was you, you, it was you
Tonight you're still on my mind
