Night Owl Lyrics

James Taylor
A catfish he tends to groove on the water
It's just where he's bound to be
And a monkey kinds of flashes on fruits and bananas
So he lives in the top of a tree
But my eyes are made for darkness
And so the nighttime is right for me
Said I'm a night owl, honey
Sleep all day long
Now most folks they like the good day time
They like to see the shining sun
They're up in the morning
Off and running
'Till they're too tired for having fun
But when the sun goes down
And them bright light shine
My daytime has just begun
I'm a night owl, honey
Sleep all day long
Said turn off that bright light, baby
You're just about to drive me blind
Draw them curtains for me, mama
You watch and you'll see
How my love light shines
Now, there's two sides to this
Great big world
and one of them is always night
Hey, if you can take care of
Business in the sunshine, baby
I guess you're gonna be alright
But don't come looking for stringbean
To lend you a hand
Because my eyes they can't stand the light
No, I'm a night owl, honey
Sleep all, sleep all day long
I said sleep all day long
I'm a night owl, honey
