Like the beat, beat, beat of the tom tom When the jungle shadows fall Like the tick, tick, tock of the stately clock As it stands against the wall Like the drip, drip, drip of the raindrops When the summer show'are is through So a voice within me keeps repeating You, you, you.
Night and day You are the one Only you beneath the moon And under the sun Whether near to me or far No matter, darling Where you are I think of you Night and day
Day and night Why it is so That this longing for you Follows wherever I go. In the roarin' traffic's boom In the silence of my lonely room I think of you Night and day
Night and day Under the hide of me There's an oh such a hungry Yearnin' burnin' inside of me And its torment won't be through 'Til you let me spend my life Making love to you Day and night Night and day
