Night Shift Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I have to work another night shift
I won't be coming home tonight
You don't have to worry where the time slips
Only by the night I come to life
Verse 2
Working weekends and the weekday
Working in the darkest of the hours
I'll take the bus, I'll take the subway
Whatever gets me to my destination
Verse 3
Fast falls the eventide, it's Friday night
And I've only got to work until the day
I've got a message to send back home
Saying that I'll be working in the nighttime, hey
Verse 4
I'll have to work another night shift
No chance of coming home at all
3 o'clock has always been a sweet spot
That's what they call the witching hour
Verse 5
Fast falls the eventide, it's Friday night
And I've only got to work until the day
I've got a message to send back home
Saying, Mama, I just had to be away
Verse 6
Fast falls the eventide, it's Friday night
And I've only got to work until the day
I've got a message to send back home
Saying, Mama, sorry I had to leave
Mama, sorry I had to leave
Verse 7
So baby girl, I got to leave
Mek sure go straight to your bed nuh badda wait up fi me
Not getting a break until 'bout quarter to 3
Before me reach home is the sun you gwain see
Verse 8
So tonight, you gonna sleep alone
'Cause if you're lookin' for me in the middle ah night I won't be home
Don't badda send no text, don't try fi call me pon di phone
Working late inna di office mi nuh deh out a street a roam, Lord!
Verse 9
Fast falls the eventide, it's Friday night
And I've only got to work until the day
I've got a message to send back home
Saying, Mama, I just had to be away
Verse 10
Fast falls the eventide, it's Friday night
And I've only got to work until the day
I've got a message to send back home
Saying, Mama, sorry I had to leave
Mama, sorry I had to leave
