Song

intro.

Well, if you see old Annie give her a lift,
'cos Annie's been working on the midnight shift.

1.

If Annie puts her hair upon her head,
Paints them lips a bright, bright red,
Wears that dress that fits real tight,
Starts staying out to the middle of the night,
Says to her friends, give her a lift,
Well, Annie's been working on the midnight shift.

2.

Well, she acts a little funny, seems a little strange,
Starts spending your money for a brand new things,
Tells you that she wants to use the car,
Never explains what she wants it for,
Brother, there ain't no if's,
Well, Annie's been working on the midnight shift.

3.

Early in the morning when the sun comes up,
You look at old Annie and she looks kinda rough,
You tell her "Honey, get outa bed",
She says "Leave me alone, I'm just about dead",
Brother, there ain't no if's,
'cos Annie's been working on the midnight shift.

4.

If you got a good mama that's stayin' at home,
You better enjoy it 'cos it won't last long,
When you think everything's all right,
She starts going 'round in the middle of the night,
Brother, there just ain't no if's,
'cos Annie's been working on the midnight shift.

coda:

Brother, there just ain't no if's,
'cos Annie's been working on the midnight shift.
