"Dark End of the Street" as written by and Dan/moman Penn....
One, two, three, four
At the dark end of the street
That's where we always meet
Hiding in shadows where we don't belong
Living in darkness, to hide alone
You and me,
At the dark end of the street
You and me
I know a time has gonna take its toll
We'll have to pay for the love we stole
Oh, it's a sin and we know that we're wrong
Oh, but our love keeps coming on strong
You and me,
At the dark end of the street
You and me
They gonna find us, they gonna find us
They gonna find us someday
We'll steal away
To the dark end of the street
You and me

If you take a walk downtown
And find some time to look around
If you should see me and I walk on by
Oh, darling, please don't cry
Tonight we'll meet
At the dark end of the street
You and me
You and me (you and me)
You and me (you and me)
You and me (you and me)
You and me (you and me)
You and me (you and me)
You and me (you and me)
You and me (you and me)
You and me (you and me)
You and me

    Lyric CorrectionAfter several careful listens, I can say with confidence that the corrected lyrics should be as follows:

    At the dark end of the street
    that's where we'll always meet,
    hiding in shadows where we don't belong,
    living in darkness to hide our wrong.

    You and me
    at the dark end of the street.
    You and me.

    I know that time's gonna take it's toll.
    We'll have to pay for the love that we stole.
    Oh, it's a sin and we know that we're wrong
    Oh, but our love keeps comin' on strong.

    You and me
    at the dark end of the street.
    You and me.

    They're gonna find us,
    they're gonna find us,
    they're gonna find us some day.
    We'll steal away
    to the dark end of the street,
    you and me.

    If you take a walk downtown
    and find some time to look around,
    if you should see me and I walk on by
    oh darling please don't cry.
    Tonight we'll meet
    at the dark end of the street.
    You and me.
    You and me.
