Now a fish, it kind of likes the water,
It’s just where he’s bound to be.
And a monkey kind of digs bananas
So he lives in the top of a tree.
But my eyes are made for darkness
So the nighttime is right for me.
I said I’m a night owl, honey,
Sleep all day long.
Now most folks, they like daytime,
They like to see the shining sun.
So they’re up in the morning,
Off and running,
‘Till they’re too tired for having fun.
But when the sun goes down
And them bright lights shine,
My daytime has just begun.
I’m a night owl, honey,
Sleep all day long
‘Now won’t you turn out that bright light, baby,
You’re just about to drive me blind.
Draw them curtains for me, mama,
You watch, and you’ll see
My love light shine.’
Now, there’s two sides to this
Great big world
And one of them is always night.
If you can take care of
Business in the sunshine, mama,
I guess you’re gonna be alright.
But don’t come looking for me
To help you out,
Because my eyes can’t stand the light.
No, I’m a night owl, honey,
Sleep all, sleep all day long.
I said sleep all day long.
I’m a night owl, honey
