It’s a night for Sherlock or a smugglers ship
or a brutal murder and the sound of feet
running and echoing down an empty street.
It’s a dirty night alright.
Streets only half revealed
by the whispering nimbus orange light.
Buildings haunch over and lift their collars
and huddle together from the grim licks of the weather
Oh it’s a dirty night alright.
Night's sky comes down right down to the ground
All black and swirling with a moaning sound.
Vampires and werewolves get ready
and ghosts awaken for a night outside.
In the rainy mists of Dirty nights
they play the whole dirty night through,
but don’t worry cause they don’t
believe in you.
Beware the dirty night
it’s rotten and brutal and dramatic
Oh the dirty night what a dirty delight
Just open your window and turn off the light.
