Uh-huh?
Can you hear me?
I gotta clock in, baby..

[Come on give me some of the night shift, the night shift]
Oh them?
[Come on give me some of the night shift, the night shift]
They're just my divas
[Come on give me some of the night shift, the night shift]
They're helping me convey my message
This is my message:

My day starts when your head hits the pillow
Gotta get my shot of double cafe ameretto
Kiss my boob goodnight and then I'm out the door
My dream last night my only friend on the metro
Clock in let the night begin
Let's see what the city dragged in
A gangsta, a hustler, a bum with some crack
Last week dude O.D.'d on too much smack

[Chorus]
On the night shift I go up the escalator
On the night shift I go down the elevator
cuz I'm the only one that's here tonight
My boss calls around 3, want to know the cronkite?
My job requires me to mace out of hate
but it's up to me so I will lyricly assasinate
those that step and those that test
the best damn security in the northwest!

On the night shift..
[One more day] I go night shift
[Lets get away] Gotta pay the bills, I go night shift..
[Love's gonna take us out of here] That's right, every day

Call up the cops because I'm one of them
Okay I guess I'm not, I'm just making fun of them
Wanted to be a 5-oh like my brother
but I failed the piss test now I'm a disgrace to my mother
If pleasure in the job is perfection in the work
then why's my uniform a second-hand T-shirt
But hope floats and that's how it goes
My 401K plan, yo, it blows!

[repeat Chorus]

[Bridge]

[One more day] I go nightshift
[Let's get away] I go nightshift]
[Love's gonna take us out of here] It's all in the family
[Trust your heart] I go nightshift
[It's not your way] I go nightshift
[Love's gonna take us out of here]

[Come on give me some of the nights hift, night shift] Fresh..
[Come on give me some of the night shift, night shift] My whole crew's fresh..
[Oh, come on give me some of the night shift, the night shift] You know what you can do to help me out?
I want everybody to put your hands in the air, air air..

[Night shift baby, night shift darling..]
[Night shift baby, night shift darling darling..]
[Night shift baby, night shift darling darling..]

Boom! [One more day]
[Let's get away]
[Love's gonna take us out of here]

[Come on give me some of the night shift, the night shift..]
[Come on give me some of the night shift, the night shift..]
[Come on give me some of the night shift, the night shift..]

I worked a lot of places
All over the world
But this, the northwest..
This is definately where it's at
So baby, I'm coming home in about ten minutes
Let's do that thing I like
Goodnight!
