Well I'm waiting standing on the corner 
And it's coming fourty past the hour 
In the midnight lonely freezing hour 
With my insides churning in the gutter

And I'm waiting fourty past midnight 
Catching rain in the soda light 
Won't you come & call me to your window 
Please don't leave me waiting on the corner

We could have the best time if you lighten up your life 
With my pockets holey in the inside 
With my bus ride rolling in the gutter 
But if you would only light your lamp light 
Then I would be here than any other

Well I'm waiting fourty past midnight 
Catching cold in the pouring rain 
Won't you come & take me to your door 
So I can take myself home again

We could have the best time if you lighten up your life 

When I'm waiting standing on the corner 
And the soda light begins to flicker 
And it's getting fourty past the hour 
And I think I won't see what I figure 
Well I'm waiting freezing on the inside 
Staring up at your window pane 
If you won't come see me this evening 
I can see myself here again

We could have the best days if you lighten up your life 
We could have the best time if you lighten up your life
