The Late Show
music-Richard Bennet / lyric-Kent Agee

I’m not a criminal, I just don’t sleep good...you know
Sometimes I walk half the night, don’t matter which way I go
You see it all after dark, yeah I call it The Late Show

I’ve seen rich women sneaking home in their silk-stocking feet
Lovers moaning in doorways entangled and indiscreet
They don’t care if I’m there, I’m just some guy on the street

See that light on the seventh floor
That’s my scarlet-blue reminder
I don’t take the stairs that go there no more
I’m just the shadow that Love cast behind her

Blood stains on the corner outside the Burma Cafe’
She was too sweet and too young to end on the sidewalk that way
He thought she was somebody else...that’s what they all say

Hear that siren in the distance, it isn’t a fire
Just one more mess desire has left in it’s wake
Pick any place, choose any time, its all the scene of the same crime
You think Love’s the answer?.....give me a break

So pull up a gravestone, we’ll sit here and watch like two crows
Find yesterdays paper and peck the bad news full of holes
This is where the ship of fools runs aground
The dime-store novel that the moon can’t put down
I can tell I’m gonna see you around........see you round the late show
