Downtown Saturday Night

Nighttime is crying
A mirror of life
She is the angel
A woman, my wife

Soft as the dewdrops
That burn my throat down
Mellow as the brandy
I buy in town

Hot as my Saturday
Washing in the tub
Sweeter than magnolias
A special back rub

Nighttime is crying
I hold her tight
Tell her I love her
In the moonlight

Jukebox playing a tune
Tears dry in our bedroom
Last memory of nighttime
Sunlight floods the room
