Crazy Janey and her mission man
Were back in the alley tradin' hands
'Long came Wild Billy with his friend G-Man
All duded up for Saturday night
Well, Billy slammed on his coaster brakes
Said: "Anybody wanna go to Greasy Lake?
It's a mile down on the dark side of Route 88
I got a bottle of rosé, let's try it

We'll pick up Hazy Davey and Killer Joe
And I'll take you all out to where the gypsy angels go
They're built like light
And they dance like spirits in the night, all night
Oh, you don't know what they can do to you
Spirits in the night (all night), in the night (all night)
Stand right up and let them shoot through you"

Wild Billy was a crazy cat
And he shook some dust out of his coon skin cap
He said: "Try some of this, it'll show you where you're at
Or at least it'll help you to feel it"
By the time we made it up to Greasy Lake
My head was out the window, Janey's fingers were in the cake
I think I really dug her, I was too loose to fake
I said: "I'm hurt," she said: "Honey, let's heal it"

And we danced all night to a soul fairy band
And she kissed me just right, like only a lonely angel can
She felt so nice
Just as soft as a spirit in the night, all night
Janey don't know what she do to you
Spirits in the night (all night), in the night (all night)
Stand right up and let them shoot through you

Spirits in the night, in the night
Spirits in the night, all night

Now, the night was bright and the stars threw light
On Billy and Davey dancin' in the moonlight
Down near the water in a stoned mud fight
Killer Joe passed out on the lawn
Hazy Davey got really hurt
He ran into the lake in just his socks and a shirt
Me and Crazy Janey makin' love in the dirt
Singin' our birthday songs

Janey said it was time to go
So we closed our eyes and said goodbye to Gypsy Angel Row
Felt so right
Together we moved like spirits in the night, all night
Oh, you don't know what they can do to you
Spirits in the night (all night), all night (all night)
Stand right up and let them shoot through you
Spirits in the night, all night
Oh, you don't know what they can do to you
Spirits in the night, all night yeah, yeah, yeah
Spirits in the night, all night...
Spirits in the night
