"Night and Day" as written by and Cole Porter....
Like the beat, beat, beat, of the tom-tom
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick tick tock of the stately clock
As it's standing against the wall

Like the beat, beat, beat, of the tom-tom
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick tick tock of the stately clock
As it's standing against the wall

Like the drip, drip, drip of the rain drops
When the summer shower is through
So a voice within me
Keeps repeating you, you, you

Night and day you are the one
Only you beneath the moon and under the sun
Whether near to me or far
It's no matter, darling, where you are
I think of you night and day

Day and night, why is it so?
That this longing for you follows wherever I go
In the roaring traffics boom
In the silence of my lonely room
I think of you night and day

Night and day under the hide of me
There's a oh such hungry yearning burning inside of me
And its torment won't be through
'Til you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night, night and day

Torment won't ever be through
'Til you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night, night and day

Day and night, night and day
Day and night, night and day
Day and night, day and night
Day and night, night and day
