Night Shift

This song is by Sting and Shaggy and appears on the album 44/876 (2018).

Now, me working on the night shift
Me know ya can't see me, you a fight it
Well, me know me reach you, me a go like it

I'll have to work another night shift
I won't be coming home tonight
You don't have to worry where the time slip
Only by the night, I come to life

Working weekends and the weekday
Working in the darkest of the hours
I'll take the bus, I'll take the subway
Whatever gets me to my destination

Fast falls the eventide, it's Friday night
And I've only got to work until the day
I've got a message to send back home
It say that I'll be working in the nighttime, hey

I'll have to work another night shift
No chance of coming home at all
3 o'clock has always been a sweet spot
That's what they call 'the witching hour'

Fast fall the eventide, it's Friday night
And I've only got to work until the day
I've got a message to send back home
Saying, "Mama, I just had to be away"

Fast fall the eventide, it's Friday night
And I've only got to work until the day
I've got a message to send back home
Saying, "Mama, sorry, I had to leave
Mama, sorry, I had to leave"

So, baby-girl, I got to leave
Make sure go a your bed, nah betta wait up fi me
Not getting a break until 'bout quarter to 3
Before me reach home, you know a de sun you a go see

So, tonight, you gonna sleep alone
'Cause, if you're lookin' for me in de-middle-ah-de-night, I won't be home
Nah botha send no text, and don't you try call me pon di phone
Working late at di office, a mi no deh, out a street a roam, Lord

Fast fall the eventide, it's Friday night
And I've only got to work until the day
I've got a message to send back home
Saying, "Mama, I just had to be away"

Fast fall the eventide, it's Friday night
And I've only got to work until the day
I've got a message to send back home
Saying, "Mama, sorry, I had to leave
Mama, sorry, I had to leave"
