Midnight Oil

Burn the midnight oil again
Cup of coffee gone cold
Just another lonely night
Just another sad song to be sold

Smoke my twentieth cigarette
Turn the T.V. down low
You taught me how to love myself
And you taught me how to let you go

Goodnight, baby
Goodnight, my baby, goodbye
Goodnight, baby
This is our farewell lullaby.

Let the cat in, it’s wet outside
Let the wine do its worst
Wish we had the time again
Wish I could’ve met you first

I’m just a young girl
You’re just a man
Doing the best that he can
I’m just a poet
You’re just a name
It’s breaking me up just the same.

Goodnight, baby
Goodnight, my baby, goodbye
Goodnight, baby
Goodnight, my baby, goodbye
Goodnight, baby
Goodnight, my baby, goodbye
Goodnight, baby
This is our farewell lullaby.
