  • The sky is dark
    The wind is cold
    The night is young
    Before it's old and grey
    We will know
    The thrill of it all

    The time has come
    It's getting late
    It's now or never
    Don't hesitate or stall
    When I call
    Don't spoil
    The thrill of it all

    And before you go to sleep at night
    Preying shadows, do they ask you why?
    And in the morning through the afternoon
    Do you wonder where you're going to?

    Every word I use
    Each crumpled page
    Strange ideas
    Mature with age
    Like leaves
    When autumn falls
    Turn gold
    Then they hit the ground

    Every time I hear
    The latest sound
    It's pure whiskey
    Reeling round and around
    My brain
    Oh and all oh that jive
    It's driving me wild
    The dizzy spin I'm in

    Everywhere I look
    I see your face
    I hear your name
    All over the place
    Hey girl
    Though you're gone
    Still I recall
    The thrill of it all

    You might as well know what is right for you
    And make the most of what you like to do
    For all the pleasure that's surrounding you
    Should compensate for all you're going through

    So if you're feeling fraught
    With mental strain
    Too much thinking's got you down again
    Well let your senses skip
    Stay hip
    Keep cool
    To the thrill of it all

    When you try too much
    You lose control
    Pressure rises
    And so I'm told
    Something's got to give
    High life ecstasy
    You might as well live

    I can't see
    I can't speak
    I couldn't take more than another week
    Without you, oh no
    So I will drink my fill
    Till the thrill is you

    Oh the thrill of it all
    Oh the thrill of it all
    No I won't forget
    The thrill of it all
