Night Moves    (1975)

I was a little too tall
Could've used a few pounds
Tight pants points hardly renown
She was a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes
And points all her own sitting way up high
Way up firm and high

Out past the cornfields where the woods got heavy
Out in the back seat of my '60 Chevy
Workin' on mysteries without any clues

Workin' on our night moves
Tryin' to make some front page drive-in news
Workin' on our night moves
In the summertime, mmmm...
In the sweet summertime

We weren't in love, oh no, far from it
We weren't searchin' for some pie in the sky summit
We were just young and restless and bored
Livin' by the sword
And we'd steal away every chance we could
To the backroom, to the alley or the trusty woods
I used her, she used me
But neither one cared
We were gettin' our share

Workin' on our night moves
Tryin' to lose the awkward teenage blues
Workin' on our night moves, mmm...
And it was summertime, mmm...
Sweet summertime, summertime

And oh, the wonder
We felt the lightning
And we waited on the thunder
Waited on the thunder

I awoke last night to the sound of thunder
How far off I sat and wondered
Started humming a song from 1962
Ain't it funny how the night moves?
When you just don't seem to have as much to lose
Strange how the night moves
With autumn closing in

Mmm...night moves
Mmm...(night moves)
Night moves (night moves)
Yeah, (night moves)
I remember, I sure remember the night moves
Ain't it funny how you remember?
Funny how you remember
I remember, I remember, I remember, I remember
Oh, oh, oh...
We're workin', workin' and practisin'
Workin' and practisin' all of the night moves
Night moves
Oh, I remember
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I remember
I remember, Lord, I remember, Lord, I remember
Ooh, oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Uh-huh, uh-huh, I remember, I remember, I remember
