Soon After Midnight

Written by: Bob Dylan
I’m searching for phrases to sing your praises
I need to tell someone
It’s soon after midnight and my day has just begun

A gal named Honey took my money
She was passing by
It’s soon after midnight and the moon is in my eye

My heart is cheerful, it’s never fearful
I been down on the killing floors
I’m in no great hurry, I’m not afraid of your fury
I've faced stronger walls than yours

Charlotte’s a harlot, dresses in scarlet
Mary dresses in green
It’s soon after midnight and I’ve got a date with a fairy queen

They chirp and they chatter, what does it matter
They’re lying there dying in their blood
Two Timing Slim, who’s ever heard of him
I’ll drag his corpse through the mud

It’s now or never, more than ever
When I met you I didn’t think you would do
It’s soon after midnight and I don’t want nobody but you
