night by night lyrics – dan steely

“it’s a beggars life”, said the queen of spain
but don’t tell it to a poor man
’cause he’s got to kill for every thrill
the best he can

everywhere around me
i see jealousy and mayhem
because no men have all their peace of mind
to carry them

well i don’t really care
if it’s wrong or if it’s right
but until my ship comes in
i’ll live night by night

when the joker tried to tell me
i could cut it in this rube town
when he tried to hang that sign on me
i said “take it down”

when the dawn patrol got to tell you twice
they’re gonna do it with a shotgun
yes, i’m cashing in this ten-cent life
for another one

well i ain’t got the heart
to lose another fight
so until my ship comes in
i’ll live night by night

well i don’t really care
if it’s wrong or if it’s right
but until my ship comes in
i’ll live night by night

night by night
night by night
night by night
night by night
