  • As you brush your shoes, you stand before your mirror
    And you comb your hair, grab your coat and hat

    And you walk the streets trying to remember, ee-yea
    All those wild nights breeze through your mind

    And every thing looks so complete
    When you're walking down on the streets
    And the wind, it catches your feet
    Sets you flying, crying

    Ooh ooh-ooh wee, wild night, is calling
    Ooh ooh-ooh wee, wild night, is calling

    All the girls walk by, dressed up for each other
    And the boys, do the boogie-woogie
    On the corner of the stree-ee-eet

    And the people passing by, just stare with wild wonder, yea
    And inside the juke box roars just like thunder


    Wi-I-I-ild night, is calling
    The wi-I-ild night a-is calling
    See'mon out and dance, see'mon out and dance
    See'mon out and make romance, see'mon out and dance
    See'mon out and dance, see'mon out and make romance

    Ooh ooh-ooh we the wild night, is calling Writer/s: VAN MORRISON
