Song title: In the midnight hour

(Pickett, Cropper) by Wilson Pickett (Atlantic 2289), 1965

In the midnight hour

I'm gonna wait 'til the midnight hour
That's when my love comes a tumbling down
I'm gonna wait 'til the midnight hour
That's when there's no one else around
I'm gonna take you, gonna hold you
Do all the things I told you
Midnight hour, oh baby
I'm gonna wait 'til the stars come out
And see the sweet look in your eye
I'm gonna wait 'til the midnight hour
That's when my love begins to shine
Well you're the only girl I know
Who really loves me so
Midnight hour, oh yeah
I'm gonna wait 'til the midnight hour
That's when my love comes tumbling down
I'm gonna wait 'til the midnight hour
That's when there's no one else around
I'm gonna take you, gonna hold you
Do all the things I told ya
Midnight hour, oh baby
Yes I am
