For a hundred krugerrand I’m sure

You would sell your father and mother

With a margarita in one hand and

Your car keys in the other

 

You said that you like to water-ski

But that sounds like a tall story to me

Just another lie from Midnight Guy

 

The bar is straight out of Edward Hopper

I must say I admire your stamina

When you’re out on the discotheque floor

Don’t stop ‘til you get enough, no

 

Your last girlfriend was a croupier

But that makes perfect sense to me

What with your vampiric tendencies

 

The city skyline reflected in your shades

Yet another of your escapades

Right on cue, the familiar sound

Of helicopter blades, yeah

 

Seeking sanctuary from the day

Are you allergic to the sun?

Fleeing from the ultra violet rays

With a hangover of biblical proportions

 

Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly away

Never mind the wherefore or the why

You’re the legendary Midnight Guy

 

The city skyline reflected in your shades

Yet another of your escapades

Right on cue, the familiar sound

Of an air boat in the Everglades
