Hicks, Tim - The Night Gets Us Lyrics

Outside, looking in this town.
Don't get what it is that makes us go so good together.
You're lace and girl I'm leather.
Some folks don't understand us, standing out in every crowd,
but they don't see us when that sun goes down.

The night gets us load, gets us singing, gets us crazy, wild and free,
there's something about the way the moonlight hits.
It's like it knows just how to get me high and get you leaning,
a little closer into me, yeah.
Sometimes it feels like no one else does, but the night gets us.
Yeah, the night gets us.

When that southern sky gets dark,
that's when you and I get started,
that let's go feeling wakes up,
we go wherever it takes us.
Your folks don't understand it, why you keep me hangin' round,
but they don't see us when them stars come out.

The night gets us load, gets us singing, gets us crazy, wild and free,
there's something about the way the moonlight hits.
It's like it knows just how to get me high and get you leaning,
a little closer into me, yeah.
Sometimes it feels like no one else does, but the night gets us.
Yeah, the night gets us.

Oh, there's something about the midnight ale, ain't a country, downtown or anywhere.
I can't explain it, girl I don't know how.

The night gets us load, gets us singing, gets us crazy, wild and free,
there's something about the way the moonlight hits.
It's like it knows just how to get me high and get you leaning,
a little closer into me, yeah.
Sometimes it feels like no one else does, but the night gets us.
Yeah, the night gets us.
Baby. Oh, the night gets us.
Yeah. The night gets us.

  8. boomboom brault

    Witty song poking fun at our neighbours....(sp Canadian spelling of Neighbours) but as a Canadian songwriter, I always find in strange ... Canadians sing like they are from Texas / Nashville. The irony in this song about Canadian Identity, the music has no Canadian Identity. So, What does Canadian music sound like? What are the roots of Canadian music?

  9. Hot cock

    We Canadian have M&M's too.

  10. LowerTheBoom

    Excuse me, I believe it would be "we *HAVE* stronger beer." (And "we *HAVE* bigger balls.")

    Not got.

  11. N2PTF

    Now that Microbreweries here in the states have higher alcohol content(Hell, even Genesee has an 8% beer now) Really not so important getting "stronger" beer up in Canada anymore.

  12. Jo Esco

    18 in Alberta!

  13. Silver Moon rabbit

    I'm American yet I love this song even though I don''t like country music XD

  14. Liam Howe

  23. Grace Phillips

    If it only takes 6 beers to get piss drunk...doesn’t that just mean you’re a lightweight?

  24. Paul-Octave Hébert

    Awesome song! Loved it! God bless Canada! 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦

  25. Diamond_Tiger 24

    Why isn’t this the national anthem


    Because most Anthems are based to the beat of military music but it be a runner up :)

  26. x namjee

    I'm American and I love this song 😂 I love Canada so much, I wish I could go one day!

  27. Play Action Jack

    Eh you forgot about lucky Vancouver islander and proud

  28. Jacob Hicks

    All the song is representing is how Canadians think that they are better than the Americans

  29. W E I R D O

    Why am I here I’m Indonesian

  30. TDI CharlieBrown

    I can't even get offended by this song as an American citizen. Three reasons

    1.) We wrote "Blame Canada" first so we sorta had it comin' lol
    2.) I watch Mel Brooks movies so it's hard to offend me
    3.) This song is funny and it kicks ass.

  31. rednoselego

  34. katzenfun

    ich habe immer gerne Country Songs gespielt.

    Ich kann das nicht
    mehr. Psychisch und physisch. Es geht immer um Whiskey, Tequila, Gin
    und Bier. Meine Nippel werden schon steif wenn ich nach ner Flasche
    Bier greif. Ich werde mich musikalisch neu orientieren Shania
    Twain-Waiter, Bring Me Water!

  42. JJ12

    I feel like this song is a presentation of how cocky Canada really is.

    Christian Ash

  50. Star Girl

    Christian Ash

    Yeah what he said you ummm....... But

  51. Kamplayz

    Super good song

  52. bone thievery

    I eat canadians for breakfast

  53. Dan Reed

    I grew up in Canada and always believed that Canadian beer was stronger. My dad, who lives in Alberta, recently told me that I was wrong. So I looked it up and it turns out that Canadians and Americans used to rate alcohol content differently. Canadian beer was measured by volume of alcohol and American beer was measured by weight of alcohol. Now the Americans use the same method as the Canadians and low and behold they both are at about 5%. Coors and Molson, both 5%. I have to say I found this information to be a little depressing. I still love the song, but a little of the zing has gone out of it.

  54. JJ12

    You can drive when your 17 down here in california. SUCKER

    (edit) This is a joke. somehow. Just ignore this comment. plz.


    @JJ12 Who says I hate my weather? I love it in every way. It is apart of who we are. Wouldn't ever trade the cold snow storms for anything.


    @JJ12 It was exciting time for the Raptor fans, first win in the NBA and people were ecstatic. They may have gone to far in a few places.


    I hope you realize I'm not dissing America, I just wanted to compare. Not trying to start some sort of argument.


    LittleMouse oops


    LittleMouse a little to offended right there hon.

  55. NatEbacon 64

    This should be the Canadians anthem

  56. chadeley

    My wife works for a direct sales company with consultants in USA and Canada. This past weekend was their national conference, and during it they had a "Lip Sync Battle" between the husbands of the Canadian consultants and the husbands of the American consultants. The Canadian husbands did this song, and the Canadian consultants were singing along too. After it was done and they asked who we thought won, everyone sitting around me (all Americans), said they thought Canada was better. I've already listened to this song a half a dozen times since then. Its catchy and is kind of funny.


    This song makes me want to move to canada

  58. clam girl Pearl

    The only other game in Canada is Basketball though, with The TORONTO RAPTORS, they won a championship this 2018-2019 season.

    cromusic ibra

    True. One of my American friends was like "Canada and sports, just don't go together. Except for hockey. But, like, baseball and basketball? Pfft." And i say "Oh yeah? We INVENTED those. And the Raptors just won the NBA championship, buddy" (made sure to use "buddy" instead of my usual "mate" or "pal," in order to emphasize my Canadian-ness).


    @cromusic ibra Don't forget to throw an "eh" in there to assert Canadian dominance.
