who is it?
who is it?
who is it?

it's three twenty-eight a.m. there's a party goin' on
I say, baby I want to boogie till the early dawn
beg the DJ for some anthems, gonna keep her on the floor
he said, don't you worry brother, I'll keep her comin back for more

flip, baby flip my switch
blow my head off
if you're gonna cry, keep your shades on
flip, baby flip my switch
blow my head off
if you're gonna cry, keep your shades on

bop-n-dop-n-dop-n-dap-bow
squiddly-bop-n-id-bop-hip-hop-b-dow
bop-n-dop-n-dop-n-dap-bow
squiddly-bop-n-id-bop-hip-hop-b-dow

who is it?

course it's comin' on five thirty six p.m.
thermometer says my temperature's about a hundred and ten
I said, baby close the curtains I think I lost my mind
she said, you just keep your shades on boy, an everythin'll be fine

flip, baby flip my switch
blow my head off
if you're gonna cry, keep your shades on
flip, baby flip my switch
blow my head off
if you're gonna cry, keep your shades on

just put the needle on the record

bop-n-dop-n-dop-n-dap-bow
squiddly-bop-n-id-bop-hip-hop-b-dow
bop-n-dop-n-dop-n-dap-bow
squiddly-bop-n-id-bop-hip-hop-b-dow

keep your shades on
keep your shades on

who is it?

from dusk till dawn...

they say eyes are the windows to the soul
I can't help you sweetheart
you say if you'll go tonight its to find some truth beneath my high sunglasses
ooh, that aint no way
I cannot do my sunday school classes
'cause I went out for each shot and get down to the...

flip, baby flip my switch
blow my head off
if you're gonna cry, keep your shades on
flip, baby flip my switch
blow my head off
if you're gonna cry, keep your shades on

flip, baby flip my switch
blow my head off
if you're gonna cry, keep your shades on
flip, baby flip my switch
blow my head off
if you're gonna cry, keep your shades on

bop-n-dop-n-dop-n-dap-bow
squiddly-bop-n-id-bop-hip-hop-b-dow
bop-n-dop-n-dop-n-dap-bow
squiddly-bop-n-id-bop-hip-hop-b-dow

bop-n-dop-n-dop-n-dap-bow
squiddly-bop-n-id-bop-hip-hop-b-dow
bop-n-dop-n-dop-n-dap-bow
squiddly-bop-n-id-bop-hip-hop-b-dow

keep your shades on
keep your shades on
keep your shades on
keep your shades on

'till the early dawn

    Song MeaningI think the song is all about covering up pain and sadness behind casual indifference. The speakers complaints in the song are always met with the response, "keep your shades on".

    With sunglasses on no one can tell what the speaker of the story is feeling indicated in the lines, "they say the eyes are the windows, I can't help you sweetheart, you say if you'll go tonight its to find some truth beneath my high sunglasses, ooh, that aint no way.

    Basically the song is about covering up your emotions behind a cool look.
