"Midnight Shift" as written by Earl Lee and Jimmie Ainsworth....
Well, if you see old Annie give her a lift
'Cause Annie's been working on the midnight shift

If Annie puts her hair upon her head
Paints them lips a bright, bright red
Wears that dress that fits real tight
Starts staying out to the middle of the night
Says that her friends, give her a lift
Well, Annie's been working on the midnight shift

If she acts a little funny, seems a little strange
Starts spending your money for a brand new thing
Tells you that she wants to use the car
Or never explains what she wants it for
Brother, it ain't no if's
Well, Annie's been working on the midnight shift

Well, early in the morning when the sun comes up
You look at old Annie and she looks kinda rough
You tell her "Honey, get outa bed"
She says "Leave me alone, I'm just about dead"
Brother, these ain't no if's
'Cause Annie's been working on the midnight shift

If you got a good mama that's stayin' at home
You better enjoy it 'cause it won't last long
When you think everything's all right
She starts going 'round in the middle of the night
Brother, there just ain't no if's
'Cause Annie's been working on the midnight shift

Brother, there ain't no if's
'Cause Annie's been working on the midnight shift, yeah
