"Night Shift" as written by and John Alagia Marc Andrew Roberge....
It's three a.m. and I want to go to bed.
I got a lady running through my head
Ran out of money looking for a night shift.
It's three a.m. and I want to go to bed.

I know a lady way down in my country.
She was so pretty that my eyes threw disguises at me.
Now we will sit and we'll wonder about our future.
But now I'm thinking that today sounds fine to me.
Well I been working five days full time.
Ain't got no money, but everything is going fine.
Well, I been tired in my head.
Well, I been tired in my head.

It's three a.m. and I want to go to bed
I got a lady running through my head
Ran out of money looking for a night shift
It's three a.m. and I want to go to bed

I know this lady whose eyes fly right through me
And she will sit and stare directly at me.
And that laugh will take me to my future.
Throughout my past there is nothing left for me.
But I been working five days full time .
Ain't got no money but everything is going fine.
I been tired in my head.
Said I been tired in my head.

It's three a.m. and I want to go to bed.
I got a lady running through my head.
Ran out of money, looking for a night shift.
It's three a.m. and I want to go to bed.

I feel my lady late night she comes to me.
Invades my mind reminds me of where we should be.
So we just sit and we dream about our future.
Throughout my past there is nothing left for me.
But I've been thinking five days full time.
Ain't got no money, but everything is going fine.
But I've been tired in my head.
Well I am tired in my head.

It's three a.m. and I want to go to bed.
I got a lady running through my head.
Ran out of money, looking for a night shift.
It's three a.m. and I want to go to bed.
My lady won't leave my head.
I just want to rest my head to bed.
She won't let me go.
I don't want to go.

    General CommentI always thought that it was a love that was discovered while on cocaine. Then its 3 AM and hes trying to go to bed, with a lady (his love) and a lady (the white biatch) all going through his head at once. That would also explain why he can be working full time and still have no money

    General CommentThis song is about Cocaine. The lady that is running through his head is Cocaine, aka "white girl". It is 3am, he can not go to bed even though he wants to, he ran out of money on the night shift(spending it on cocaine.) He has been working 5 days full time but never has any money...what are your thoughts?
