Studio Version\r\rLyrics:\r\rCrazy Janey and her mission man were back in the alley tradin' hands\r`long came Wild Billy with his friend G-man all duded up for Saturday night\rWell Billy slammed on his coaster brakes and said anybody wanna go on up to Greasy Lake\rIt's about a mile down on the dark side of route eighty-eight\rI got a bottle of rose so let's try it\rWe'll pick up Hazy Davy and Killer Joe and I'll take you all out to where the gypsy angels go\rThey're built like light\rand they dance like spirits in the night (all night) in the night (all night)\rOh, you don't know what they can do to you\rSpirits in the night (all night), in the night (all night)\rStand right up now and let it shoot through you\r\rWell now Wild young Billy was a crazy cat and he shook some dust out of his coonskin cap.\rHe said, \"Trust some of this it'll show you where you're at, or at least it'll help you really feel it\"\rBy the time we made it up to Greasy Lake I had my head out the window and Janey's fingers were in the cake\rI think I really dug her `cause I was too loose to fake\rI said, \"I'm hurt.\" She said, \"Honey let me heal it\".\rAnd we danced all night to a soul fairy band\rand she kissed me just right like only a lonely angel can\rShe felt so nice, just as soft as a spirit in the night (all night)\rIn the night (all night).
