WHO LIVES ON EARTH TONIGHT?

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.  hiding in the tall grass,
                 moaning in the night...
                 drinking from a tall glass
                 of passion and delight...

            II.  crossing a cold stream,
                 sitting by the fire...
                 like a thunderbolt dream
                 you kindle my desire.

        CHORUS:  who lives on earth tonight?
                 who lives on earth tonight?
                 only you and I, my love,
                 only you and I
                 live on earth tonight,
                 live on earth tonight.

        BRIDGE:  some people are out driving around...
                 soldiers guarding forts...
                 or night shift at the diner...
                 milkmen hauling quarts.
                 they're watching midnight movies,
                 or old reruns on TV...
                 some of them are actually sleeping...
                 now look at them and tell me:

                 (repeat chorus)

           III.  side-by-side we lie there,
                 under the Milky Way.
                 I would gladly die there,
                 having lived this day.

                 (repeat chorus)

        ENDING:  live on earth
                 tonight,
                 tonight,
                 tonight,
                 tonight.
