3 on a fever, down in the dumps 
The 1st one hollers, the 2nd one jumps 
The 3rd writes a letter to his family 
Says I'd kill everyone if it was up to me 
 
Early in the bathroom, looking for a drain 
Passing at the misery, just to ease the pain 
Scared at the turbid, looking for a light 
Anything at all to get through the long night 
 
Long night, long night 
Well everybody's got the fever and relief is not in sight 
Long night, long night 
Lord the darkest hours, please relieve this appetite 
 
Up against the window and up against the wall 
And up against religion and up against it all 
No place to run to and no place to hide 
You know the night will fall and you will crawl inside 
 
Well I get up in the morning, it's the same old news 
Somebody's been wearing someone else's shoes. 
I cripple to his crutches, I'm off to the light 
Well one and all, we run from the long night. 
 
Long night, long night 
Well everybody's got the fever and relief is not in sight 
Long night, long night 
Lord the darkest hours, please relieve this appetite 
 
I don't want to do that jive 
Too late... it's too late 
 
3 on a fever, down in the dumps 
The 1st one hollers, the 2nd one jumps 
The 3rd writes a letter to his family 
I said I'd kill everyone if it was up to me 
 
Long night, long night 
Well everybody's got the fever and relief is not in sight 
Long night, long night 
Lord the darkest hours, please relieve this appetite
