Lyrics
WHERE ARE YOU GONNA SLEEP TONIGHT
Written by: Howard Delnick


Verse:
THE SUN COMES UP IN THE EASTERN SKY,
KISSED HER LIPS AND SAID GOODBYE,
OH, WHERE ARE YOU GONNA SLEEP TONIGHT
SHE HAS NO PLACE TO CALL HER OWN,
SHE HAS NO MEANS TO MAKE A HOME,
OH, WHERE ARE YOU GONNA SLEEP TONIGHT

Chorus:
SHE LAYS HER HEAD 'NEATH THE MIDNIGHT MOON,
AND PRAYS TO GOD IT'LL BE OVER SOON
'CAUSE SHE'S SO TIRED OF LIVING OUT THIS LIFE,
SHE'S ONLY WARM IN THE MID-DAY SUN,
SHE HAS NO FRIENDS, NOT EVEN ONE,
OH, WHERE ARE YOU GONNA SLEEP TONIGHT,
YES, WHERE ARE YOU GONNA SLEEP TONIGHT

Verse:
SHE WALKS THE STREETS FROM DUSK TILL DAWN,
WITH SHATTERED DREAMS, AND HER CLOTHES ARE WORN,
OH, WHERE ARE YOU GONNA SLEEP TONIGHT,
SHE FINDS A MEAL HERE AND THERE,
SOME DAYS WITHOUT, BUT WHO REALLY CARES,
OH, WHERE ARE YOU GONNA SLEEP TONIGHT

Chorus:
