Labelle - Take The Night Off Lyrics




Take the night off
Get under the cloth
Take the night off
Be your own boss
When you're near me
Can't you hear me?
Or do I have to shout in your ear?

Take the night off (Take the night off, can't you see)
Turn the light off
Take the night off (I've been waiting patiently)
Turn the light off
And I'll try to give you a start to a better day
(What you waitin' for? What you waitin' for?
What you waitin' for? What you waitin' for?)

Can't you see when you're the fire
(You're the fire growin' higher and higher and higher)
Don't you know when you're the light
(You're the light growin' brighter and brighter and brighter and brighter and brighter and brighter)
Of someone else's strong desire
Tell them to turn off them lights

Take the night off (Take the night off, can't you see)
Get under the cloth
Take the night off (I've been waiting patiently)
Get into the raw
I'll let you know when you're the fire
(You're the fire growin' higher and higher)
I'll let you see without the light
(You're the light growin' brighter and brighter)
That you're my only desire
If you turn them off, keep them off

Take the night off (Take the night off, can't you see)
Turn the light off
Take the night off (I've been waiting patiently)
Get under the cloth
And I'll try to give you a start to a
Try to give you a start
Try to give you a start to a better day
Try to give you a start to a
Try to give you a start
Try to give you a start to a better day
Take it off
(Been waiting patiently)
Oh, Take it
(Been waiting desperately)
Oh, take it
(Been waiting patiently)
Oh, Take it
(Been waiting desperately)
Oh, take it

    Killer tune. Just heard this on the paper boy movie. Man what soul. I'm a 70's kid grew up on Aerosmith and stuff. I know cool music when I hear it and this is it. This should've been on every radio station in the country. Just cooks.
