SOMETHING IN THE NIGHT

Live 09 Oct 1976 version

[...] Together, me and her, we could surrender to the justice of something in the night

And I know that nothing is forgotten or forgiven, when its your second time around
And me I got stuff running around my head, I can't live with or without
And all the big boys, the big boys and the players, they stand outside and mumble, about something, something wrong and right
While kids like us rumble baby over something in the night

Now all them folks out on the island, they better lock their doors, take their children by the hand
Because tonight the devil will walk these streets like a man
Better bring along a switchblade, in case that old fool wants to fight
You can tell him I'll be waiting for him in my room with all the lights out, crazy with that something in the night
Woahhh there's something in the night
Woahhh there's something in the night

Info

The above lyrics are for the live 09 Oct 1976 performance of SOMETHING IN THE NIGHT at University Of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN, during the Lawsuit Tour. The show was held in the University's Athletic And Convocation Center. Unfortunately, the audio recording for the first three verses is cut.

The lyrics for this version are very different from the album version, and have some few similarities to the live 01 Aug 1976 version in the last verse.

The "Better bring along a switchblade, in case that old fool wants to fight" line appears on TAKE 'EM AS THEY COME
