At night when everything is quiet
This old house seems to breathe a sigh
Sometimes I hear a neighbor snoring
Sometimes I can hear a baby cry
Sometimes I can hear a staircase creaking
Sometimes a distant telephone
Oh, and when the night settles down again
This old house and I are all alone
Lonely house, lonely me
Funny with so many neighbors
How lonesome you can be
Lonely town, lonely street
Funny, you can be so lonely
With all these folks around
I guess there must be something
I don't comprehend
Sparrows have companions
Even stray dogs have a friend
The night for me is not romantic
Unhook the stars and take them down
I'm lonely in this lonely town, in this lonely house
The night, the night for me is not romantic
Unhook the stars and take them down
I'm lonely in this lonely town, in this lonely house
At night when everything is quiet
