CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT - 1974

They're flying in from miles around
They circle and they settle down
They sit and feel the world go round with you
They've come to share the night with you
They sit. They stare. That's what they do
They've come to share the light with you

CHORUS. . .When the sun begins to shine
They'll be leaving you behind
Where do they go? Where do they go?

Fuzzy, chocolate, stripped, white
Peaches, pickles, humpbacks might
Be leaving you but how they love the light
Angle wings and butterflies
Because the caterpillar dies
That Old Designer, how he tries for you

CHORUS

Red and yellow, black and white
All are precious in his sight
Jesus loves the CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT
Red and yellow, black and white
All are precious in his sight
Jesus loves the CHILDREN OF THE LIGHT

CHORUS

Tiny bodies left behind
You know their mama doesn't mind
Because it's spider feeding time again
Eight legs, six legs, five or four
One, toe, three and sometimes more
Left there in the painted door for you

CHORUS

When the sun shoos out the night
Your fuzzy little friends take flight
Where do they go. They're out of sight
Be back when the sun goes down
Just leave a little light around
They will return without a sound for you
