Like the beat, beat, beat,
Of the tom-tom;
When the jungle shadows fall,
Like the tick, tick, tock
Of the stately clock,
As it stands against the wall,
Like the drip, drip, drip,
Of the raindrops,
When the summer show'r is through;
So a voice within me
 Keeps repeating,
You, you, you

 Night and day
You are the one,
Only you 
 Beneath the moon
And under the sun.
 Whether near to me or far,
It's no matter, 
Darling, where you are
I think of you
 Night and day.

Day and night 
Why is it so,
That this longing for you follows 
Where-ever I go?
In the roaring traffic's boom,
In the silence of my lonely room,
I think of you,
 Night and day.

 Night and day
 Under the hide of me
There's an 
Oh, such a hungry yearning,
 Burning inside of me.
And its torment won't be through 
Til you let me spend my life
 Making love to you,
Day and night,
 Night and day.
