"The Night Time and My Baby" as written by Norris D Wilson, Carmol Taylor and Joe Stampley....
I work like a dog eight hours a day you know I'm nearly dead
I stop by a bar on my way home and loosen up my head
Lord knows this is a hard life sometimes it'll drive you crazy
Cause there ain't no pleasure in this life for me but the nighttime and my baby

I'd love to ride all over town in a brand new Cadillac
But on the money that I'm makin' it'll never be like that
But money can't buy everything like tender love at home I got a waitin'
And the only pleasure in this life for me is the nighttime and my baby

When I get home she's always got love saved up for me
Her warm sweet lips will make me forget my misery
With her arms wrapped around me through the long long night
I wake up in the morning feeling right

Start back to that old job again with the boss standin' over me
Sayin' hurry up you gotta work that's the way it's gonna be
Ten hours just keep on draggin' Lord don't you know this life just ain't easy
Well the only pleasure in this life for me is the nighttime and my baby
Yeah there ain't no pleasure in this life for me but the nighttime and my baby
Yeah there ain't no pleasure in this life for me but the nighttime and my baby
Yeah there ain't no pleasure in this life for me but the nighttime and my baby
