Everybody's coming round to my place Everybody's coming round to my place Everybody's coming round, oh baby, don't you see Everybody wanna be your midnight man Don't disturb me as I sleep, treat me gently when I wake Don't disturb me when I sleep even though your body aches Even though your body aches to serve at his command Between the wars she still adores her ever-loving man Close your eyes, sleep in him, dream of your lost sons and daughters Me, I'll raise up the dorsal fin, and glide up and down the waters I'll glide up and down the waters, then I'll walk upon the land And call them out, the ones who doubt your midnight man Everybody's coming round to my place Everybody's coming round to my place Everybody's coming round, oh baby, don't you see Everybody wants to be your midnight man It's early in the morning and I don't know what to do It's early in the morning and I can't believe it's true It's early in the morning and it's happening again I called you once, I called you twice, ain't I your midnight man? Everybody's coming round to my place Everybody's coming round to my place Everybody's coming round, oh baby, don't you see Everybody wants to be your midnight man Everybody's coming round Everybody's coming round Everybody's coming round To be your midnight man To be your midnight man
