Buddy Holly — Midnight Shift lyrics

If you see old Annie better give her a lift


Cause Annie's been a-workin on a midnight shift

If Annie puts her hair up on her head



Paints them lips up bright, bright red
Wears that dress that fits real tight

Starts stayin' out 'til the middle of the night

Says that a friend gave her a lift

Well, Annie's been workin' on a midnight shift


If she acts a little funny - seems a little strange


Starts spendin' your money for brand new things

Tells you that she wants to use the car
Never explains what she wants it for
Brother, there just ain't no "ifs?



Cause Annie's been workin' on a midnight shift




Early in the morning when the sun comes up

You look at old Annie and she looks kinda rough
You tell her "honey, get on out of that bed?

She says "leave me alone - I'm just about dead?

Brother, there just ain't no "ifs?

Cause Annie's been workin' on a midnight shift


If you got a good mama that's stayin' at home


You'd better enjoy it - cause it won't last long

When you think everything's all right

She starts slippin' round in the middle of the night

Brother, there just ain't no "ifs?
Cause Annie's been workin' on a midnight shift
