KNOCK OUT THE LIGHTS
(J. Miller Sparks)
RED KIRK (MERCURY 6409, 1952)

Now, everybody's present and they're feelin' fine
There ain't nobody standin' in the ole stack line
The music's jumpin', folks are really goin' wild
The whole darn place is rockin', and it's country style
The party's gettin' rougher than you ever saw
Knock out the lights and call the law

Oh, where's that sweet baby that I brought with me?
I got a baby now, but brother who is she?
She's got her hair let down, let down way too low
If there's to be a funeral, well then it's time to go
The party's gettin' rougher than you ever saw
Knock out the lights and call the law

I'm not as old fashioned as I seem to be
You might think I'm a turd, you start to carve on me
I been to parties where they lasted all night
And I ain't fit for lovin' after losin' a fight
The party's gettin' rougher than you ever saw
Knock out the lights and call the law

Now, everybody's present and they're feelin' fine
And there's nobody standin' in the ole stack line
The music's jumpin', folks are really goin' wild
The whole darn place is rockin', and it's country style
The party's gettin' rougher than you ever saw
Knock out the lights and call the law
