Night and Day
by Cole Porter



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'are 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
No matter, darling Where you are
I think of you
Night and day

Day and night
Why it is so
That this longing for you
Follows wherever I go.
In the roarin' 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
Yearnin' burnin' 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
