Hollies Midnight Shift Lyrics

Last updated:

(Lee / Ainsworth)
Well, if you see old Annie give her a lift.
'Cos Annie's been working on the midnight shift.

Annie puts her hair upon her head
paints them lips a bright, bright red
wears that dress that fits real tight
starts staying out to the middle of the night.
Says that her friends give her a lift.
Well, Annie's been working on the midnight shift.

Well, she acts a little funny
seems a little strange
starts spending your money for a brand new thing
Tells you that she wants to use the car
never explains what she wants it for
Brother, it ain't no if's
Well, Annie's been working on the midnight shift

Early in the morning when the sun comes up
you look at old Annie and she looks kinda rough.
You tell her "Honey, get outa bed."
she says "Leave me alone, I'm just about dead."
Brother, these ain't no if's
'cos Annie's been working on the midnight shift

If you got a good mama that's stayin' at home
You better enjoy it 'cos it won't last long.
When you think everything's all right
she starts going 'round in the middle of the night.
Brother, there just ain't no if's
'cos Annie's been working on the midnight shift
Brother, this ain't no if's
'cos Annie's been working on the midnight shift, yeah.
