Lyrics

in the tiny tiny hours
(be) tween the evening and the day
we have placed our final bets
we have come out to play
fancy drinks a lucky toasts
i like this time the most

you're out all night
chasin' girlies
you're late to work
and you go home earlies

lookin' lost in chinatown
why are we hidin' from our friends
rushing 'round in taxi cabs
is it time to make amends
you'll get yours and i'll get mine
you can't be lucky all the time

you're out all night
chasin' girlies
you're late to work
and you go home earlies
