The sky is dark 
The wind is cold 
The night is young 
Before it's old and grey 
We will know 
The thrill of it all 

The time has come 
It's getting late 
It's now or never 
Don't hesitate or stall 
When I call 
Don't spoil 
The thrill of it all 

And before you go to sleep at night 
Preying shadows, do they ask you why? 
And in the morning through the afternoon 
Do you wonder where you're going to? 

Every word I use 
Each crumpled page 
Strange ideas 
Mature with age 
Like leaves 
When autumn falls 
Turn gold 
Then they hit the ground 

Every time I hear 
The latest sound 
It's pure whiskey 
Reeling round and around 
My brain 
Oh and all oh that jive 
It's driving me wild  
The dizzy spin I'm in 

Everywhere I look 
I see your face 
I hear your name 
All over the place 
Hey girl 
Though you're gone 
Still I recall 
The thrill of it all 

You might as well know what is right for you 
And make the most of what you like to do 
For all the pleasure that's surrounding you 
Should compensate for all you're going through 

So if you're feeling fraught 
With mental strain 
Too much thinking's got you down again 
Well let your senses skip 
Stay hip 
Keep cool 
To the thrill of it all 

When you try too much 
You lose control 
Pressure rises 
And so I'm told 
Something's got to give 
High life ecstasy 
You might as well live 

I can't see 
I can't speak 
I couldn't take more than another week 
Without you, oh no 
So I will drink my fill 
Till the thrill is you 

Oh the thrill of it all 
Oh the thrill of it all 
No I won't forget 
The thrill of it all 

No no no no no no no
