"In the Night" as written by and Allen Toussaint....
She sits alone, just starin' at the telephone
Another night she waits, for her imaginary date
The same old story's got her in a trance
Just like her books of Harlequin romance

Ohh
In the night
When she's all by herself, oh
That's the time
She'll be cryin' for help, oh
In the night
When there's no one in sight
And no one to hold her tight, yeah
She'll be cryin' in the night

She hopes someday, love is gonna come her way
With each year that goes by
It's harder hidin' all the hurt inside
She hopes her story has a happy end, oooh
Just like she reads in books of Harlequin

Ohh
In the night
When she's all by herself, oh
That's the time
She'll be cryin' for help, oh
In the night
When there's noone in sight
And noone to hold her tight, yeah
She'll be cryin' in the night

J-J-Just another lonely night
J-J-Just another lonely life
Another victim of and endless fight
For love...yeah, yeah, yeah

(Solo)

Ohh
In the night
When she's all by herself, yeah
That's the time
She'll be cryin' for help, oh
In the night
When she turns out the light, oh
That's the time
