Night Rally Lyrics - Elvis Costello

Review The Song (1)



I would send out for assistance but there's someone on the signal wire
And the corporation logo is flashing on and off in the sky
They're putting all your names in the forbidden book
I know what they're doing but I don't want to look
You think they're so dumb, you think they're so funny
Wait until they've got you running to the
Night rally, night rally, night rally

Everybody's singing with their hand on their heart
About deeds done in the darkest hours
That's just the sort of catchy little melody
To get you singing in the showers

Oh, I know that I'm ungrateful
I've got it lying on a plate
And I'm not buying my share of souvenirs
You can stand to attention
You can pray to your uncle
sponsored links
Only get that chicken out of here
Everyone gets armbands and 3-D glasses
Some are in the back room
And they're taking those night classes

You think they're so dumb, you think they're so funny
Wait until they've got you running to the
Night rally, night rally, night rally

Great rock writers (e.g. Dylan, Springsteen, Lennon, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen)always seem to write songs then because they know we'll need them now. I was fortunate enough to work for a record store when his first three albums were released. Night Rally comes from 1978. He perfectly captures our times with his prescient imagery: there is someone on the signal wire; they are putting our names in the forbidden book and doing things that we don't want to see. That second verse sounds like a description of Nazi rallys and actions a world and several generations away. But in fact it's about you and me, pal, in the here and now. If we're not going to be part of the night rally, then we'd better get ready to sing in the showers.
