EVERY LITTLE KISS
Lena Horne


Way out here, working on the docks

Everyone sees the long day through

Well what would I do without the nights and the phone

And the chance just to talk to you

What wouldn't I do now...

Just to talk to you

A thousand miles away

What I wouldn't give for only one night

Little relief in sight

Someday when times weren't so tight


CHORUS

When the day goes down on the water town

When the sun sinks low all around

That's when I know I need you now

You're what I miss

Every little kiss

Every little one, oh, every little one


Everybody here's a number, not a name

But I guess that's all right with me

As I sit alone after a long day

In the absence of company

Oh I let my mind wander...

A thousand miles away

What I wouldn't give for only one night

Little relief in sight

Someday when times weren't so tight


CHORUS
