Billy Holiday – Late Night Theme

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’r 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.
