When the evenin' sun goes down You will find me hangin' 'round Oh, the night life, it ain't no good life But it's my life Many people just like me Dreamin' of old used-to-be's Oh, the night life, it ain't no good life Ah, but it's my life Listen to the blues that they're playin' Listen what the blues are sayin' (Instrumental Break) Life is just another scene In this old world of broken dreams Oh, the night life, it ain't no good life But it's my life Oh, the night life ain't no good life Oh, but it's my life Yeah, it's my life ************************************* As recorded by DORIS DAY: SPOKEN: These are the sounds of daytime, busy, happy, alive with confusion. The sounds of people. Each with his own goals, each with his own patterns, living under the constant vigil of the Sun. But each day, the inevitable darkness comes, and spreads its cloud of quiet over the land. And the familiar sounds rest, and sleep with those who live by day and hide from the darkness........ This is the sound of the night. It's sad, sensuous, gloomy. So apart from the confusion of daytime, it seems a different world. This is the sound of night life, my life......... When the evenin' sun goes down You will find me hangin' 'round The night life ain't no good life But it's my life Many people just like me Dreamin' of old used-to-be's The night life, it ain't a good life But it's my life Listen to the blues that they're playin' Listen to what the blues are sayin' Oh my, it's just another scene From the world of broken dreams The night life ain't a good life But it's my life (When the evenin' sun goes down) You will find me hangin 'round Oh, the night life ain't a good life But it's my life (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2006) *****************************
