At night when you turn off all the lights
There's no place that you can hide
No no, the rhythm is gonna get'cha

In bed, throw the covers on your head
You pretend like you are dead
But I know it, the rhythm is gonna get'cha

This is the rhythm of the night
The Night
Oh yeah
The rhythm of the night
This is the rhythm of my life
My life
Oh yeah
The rhythm of my life

Daddy started out in San Francisco,
 Tootin' on his trumpet loud and mean.
Suddenly a voice said, "Go forth, Daddy.
 Spread the picture on a wider screen. "

 And the voice said, "Daady, there's a million pigeons
 Ready to be hooked on new religions.
 Hit the road, Daddy. Leave your common-law wife.
 Spread the religion of the rhythm of life. "

 And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
 Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet,
 Rhythm in your bedroom, rhythm in the street,
 Yes, the rhythm of life is a powerful beat.

 To feel the rhythm of life,
 To feel the powerful beat,
 To feel the tingle in your fingers,
 To feel the tingle in your feet.
'I dont remember anyone solemnly warning Theresa May to keep Britain in the single market just in case the Lib Dems got violent.'

I got rhythm, I got music
I got my gal
Who could ask for anything more?
I got daisys, in green pastures
I got my gal
Who could ask for anything more?

Old man trouble
I don't mind him
You won't find him 'round my door
I got starlight
I got sweet dreams
I got my gal
Who could ask for anything more?

Oliver, Oliver
Never before has a boy wanted more
Oliver, Oliver
Won't ask for more when he knows what's in store
There's a dark, thin winding stairway without any banister
Which we'll throw him down
And feed him the cockroaches served in a canister

The little cockroach
The little cockroach
All she wanted was to dance
She doesn't mind that her leg is missing
She would never miss the chance
Ah, but I was so much older then ... I'm younger than that now

Two and two are four
Four and four are eight
Eight and eight are sixteen
Sixteen and sixteen are thirty-two

Inch worm, inch worm
Measuring the marigolds
You and your arithmetic
You'll probably go far

The vermin only teaze and pinch
Their foes superior by an inch.
So, naturalists observe, a flea
Has smaller fleas that on him prey;
And these have smaller still to bite 'em,
And so proceed ad infinitum.
Thus every poet, in his kind,
Is bit by him that comes behind
Ah, but I was so much older then ... I'm younger than that now

How many nights does it take to count the stars?
 That's the time it would take to fix my heart
 Oh, baby, I was there for you
 All I ever wanted was the truth, yeah, yeah
 How many nights have you wished someone would stay?
 Lay awake only hoping they're okay
 I never counted all of mine
 If I tried, I know it would feel like infinity

Infinity, infinity, yeah
 Infinity

Sometimes I wonder, how I spend
The lonely nights
Dreaming of a song
The melody
Haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
And now my consolation is in the stardust of a song.

By the time we got to Woodstock,
 We were half a million strong
 And Everywhere there was song and celebration.

 And I dreamed I saw the bombers
 Riding shotgun in the sky,
 And they were turning into butterflies
 Above our nation.

 We are stardust.
 Billion year old carbon.
 We are golden..
 Caught in the devil's bargain
 And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden
