– BECAUSE THE NIGHT-
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
– ROCK ‘N’ ROLL NIGGER –
Baby was a black sheep. Baby was a whore
Baby got big and baby get bigger
Baby get something. Baby get more
Baby, baby, baby was a rock-and-roll nigger

Late afternoon, dreaming hotel
We just had the quarrel that sent you away
I was looking for you, are you gone gone?
