"I Don't Want the Night to End" as written by and Phoebe Snow....
Oh mommy mommy
Oh mommy mommy, yeah
I stood too near the gaslight
And I cried
The dirty city mist
Had seeped too deep inside
It took me on some kind
Of heady ride
They told me Charlie Parker died
And I don't want the night to end
And I don't want the night to end

Oh daddy daddy
Oh daddy daddy
Waiting half my life
On platforms underground
The other half I wasted
As a desperate clown
My problem now is
That you're not around
In dark delicious dreams of you
I'll drown
And I don't want the night to end

Oh baby baby
Oh baby baby
Wrapped around your soul
Is where I wanna be
But in the night blue music's
All I seem to see
The drunks out in the rain
Down on one knee
And what is to become
Of you and me
And I don't want the night to end

    General CommentSurprised there are no comments on this one. One of Phoebe Snow's most poignant songs, almost painful to listen to, especially in light of her later life: more or less giving up her career to care for her severely disabled daughter from infancy until the latter's death at age 31, and Phoebe's own untimely death in 2011.
