Boogie All Night

© 1980  Lyrics by Paul Zelevansky

 

Last night 

when things seemed quiet 

the baby got the flu. 

And early in the morning 

my wife felt sickly too. 

Sooner or later, 

they all throw up on you. 

But I don't mind. 

I like to boogie all night. 

 

The roaches in the kitchen 

made their way out through †he wall. 

There's forty pounds of toys and games 

thrown around the floor. 

The plaster on the ceiling 

looks too tired to fall. 

But I don't mind. 

I like to boogie all night. 

(chorus) 

 

There's a bum passed out on the corner. 

An out-patient's sitting by the door. 

Everyone else looks dangerous 

And I can't stop watching it all. 

But it's all right 

I just like to boogie all night. 

 

This day is almost over, 

every one else is asleep. 

The house is humming with quiet 

and I'm going to lie here and think. 

It's my time, don't bother to call. 

As I unwind 

I just like to boogie all night. 

(chorus)
