  • Crazy Janey and her mission man
    Were back in the alley tradin' hands
    'Long came Wild Billy with his friend G-Man
    All duded up for Saturday night
    Well, Billy slammed on his coaster brakes
    And said, "Anybody want to go on up to Greasy Lake?
    It's about a mile down on the dark side of Route 88
    I got a bottle of rosé so let's try it
    We'll pick up Hazy Davy and Killer Joe
    And I'll take you all out to where the gypsy angels go
    They're build like light
    And they dance like spirits in the night (all night), in the night (all night)
    Oh, you don't know what they can do to you
    Spirits in the night (all night), in the night (all night)
    Stand up right now and let them shoot through you"

    Well now, Wild Billy was a crazy cat
    And he shook some dust out of his coonskin cap
    He said, "Trust some of this, it'll show you where you're at
    Or at least it'll help you really feel it"
    By the time we made it up to Greasy Lake
    I had my head out the window and Janey's fingers were in the cake
    I think I really dug her 'cause I was too loose to fake
    I said, "I'm hurt." She said, "Honey, let me heal it"
    And we danced all night to a soul fairy band
    And she kissed me just right, like only a lonely angel can
    She felt so nice
    Just as soft as a spirit in the night (all night), in the night (all night)
    Janey don't know what she do to you
    Spirit in the night (all night), in the night (all night)
    Stand right up and let her shoot through me

    Now, the night was bright and the stars threw light
    On Billy and Davy dancin' in the moonlight
    They were down near the water in a stone mud fight
    Killer Joe gone passed out on the lawn
    Well now, Hazy Davy got really hurt
    He ran into the lake in just his socks and his shirt
    Me and Crazy Janey was makin' love in the dirt
    Singin' our birthday songs
    Janey said it was time to go
    So we closed our eyes and said goodbye to Gypsy Angel Row
    Felt so right
    Together we moved like spirits in the night (all night), in the night (all night)...
