Midnight - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by David
Deep in the bayou, into L.A.,
The merchandise is changing sides,
People are hiding and waiting all day,
Till midnight comes around,
That's when it's coming down.
And the dreams of a boy
And his shortcut to easystreet will die.
Back in the city, she's biting her nails,
Taking it hard, he's doing it for her,
She didn't ask and all he would say
Is what he planned to do
To make her dreams come true.
But a whisper went 'round
On the dark side of town
And anything that could go wrong,
Is going wrong right now.
Midnight when it all comes down,
Only the brave and the fools are around,
Midnight when it all comes down,
Poor little fool, his bravery won't help him now.
Touchdown on the water and into the trees,
He's come so far and this is the easy part,
Just got to follow the flashlight he sees
And that's where he gets paid,
His fortune will be made.
But a house in the country
And an acre of green
Will always be a dream,
They never even knew his name.
Midnight when it all comes down,
Only the brave and the fools are around,
Midnight when it all comes down,
Poor little fool, his bravery won't help him now.
Midnight when it all comes down,
Only the brave and the fools are around,
Midnight when it all comes down,
Poor little fool, his bravery won't help him,
Midnight.
Midnight, when it all comes down,
Midnight when it all comes down,
Only the brave and the fools are around,
Midnight when it all comes down,
Poor little fool.
