I'm the nightshift watchman for the planet
Five days a week, I watch the tube
Five nights a week, I'm watching the radar
Easy job with nothing much to do

Waiting in my air conditioned office
Down a thousand feet below the sand
Looking at the lines upon my fingers
Thinking of the power in my hand

'Cause if I do my job, my job is over
If I start my day, my days are through
And if I set to work, my work is over
Soon as I begin, we'll all be through

I'm the nightshift watchman
I'm the nightshift watchman

Watching for some movement in the heavens
Waiting on some action down below
When it comes, I'll follow my directions
When it comes, it's time for us to go

'Cause if I do my job, my job is over
If I start my day, my days are through
And if I set to work, my work is over
Soon as I begin, we'll all be through

I'm the nightshift watchman
I'm the nightshift watchman

Well, I've a hand that looks a lot like your hand
And I've a heart that feels the same as you
And I've a house and family on the surface
Someone's got to do this job I do

I'm the nightshift watchman
I'm the nightshift watchman

I'm the nightshift watchman
I'm the nightshift watchman
