fade out
S[E]he's just a night bird flyin' through the night
Fly on
She's just a night bird making a midnight, midnight flight
Sail on, sail on
Yeah, yeah
Well, she's f[A]lyin' do[G]wn to [E]me, but 'til tom[G]orrow got to s[D]et her f[B]ree
Set her free
So all we got, baby, is one precious night
All we got is one precious night
Throw your blues and shoes and things
and lay it down under the bed
Just wrap me up in your beautiful wings,
better hear what I say, yeah
Oh, carry me home
Please take me through your dreams,
inside your world I want to be
Until tomorrow no tears will be shed
Hold on 'til the sun gets out of bed
Hold on, hold on, baby
Fly on baby
(Solo)
Sail on, sail on, sail on
Sail on
Rise on, take it
