Spend the Night with Me

The lives of men are short and brutal
Women’s lives, long and cruel
Oh baby, won’t you spend the night with me

It’s cold outside, the winds are blowing
Lots of time to sleep alone
Oh baby, won’t you spend the night with me

Oh won’t you take my hand
Take me to the promised land
You know I’ll do what I can for you

C’mon and hold me tight
Look for that bright spot in the night
Where everything will be all right
Fight the dying of the light with me
Spend the night with me

When you die, the bugs will eat you
Tell me why we live like we do?
Oh baby, won’t you spend the night with me

Misery, pain and sorrow
Swear I’ll be a better man tomorrow
Oh baby, won’t you spend the night with me

I may not mend your broken heart forever
Or make all your dreams come true
But I will spend this night with you
forever

If you take my hand
I’ll take you to the promised land...

Misery, pain and sorrow
Swear I’ll be a better man tomorrow
Oh baby, won’t you spend the night with me
