Why should I worry when I know you’re loving me
Why should I care when there’s joy everywhere
Why can’t I see the beauty of the life

Somebody I trusted, trusted
Somebody I knew quite well
Somebody I loved
Done reached up and put out the light

(Put out the light) Turn the day into night
(Put out the light) Put out light
(Turn the day into night) Turn the day into night
(Hey, hey, hey, yeah)

I got this good old melody
I think it’s makin' me blue only
Then I hear the symphony
That’s what I get and that’s what’s been taken out, the best of me

(Hey, hey, hey, yeah)
(Hey, hey, hey, yeah)

Why should I hurry? I do the best I can
Do what I do and I hope you understand
Why can’t I see the beauty of the life?

Somebody I trusted
Somebody I knew quite well
Somebody I loved
Done reached up and put out the light

(Put out the light) Turn the day into night
(Put out the light) Put out light
(Turn the day into night) Turn the day into night
(Hey, hey, hey, yeah)

(Please don’t, somebody I trusted)
(Somebody I knew quite well)
(Somebody I loved)
(Done reached up and put out the light)
Reached up and put out the light
(Put out the light)
(Hey, hey, hey, yeah)

(Put out the light, don’t put out the light)
(Put out the light, don’t put out the light)
(Put out the light, don’t put out the light)
(Put out the light, don’t put out the light)
(Put out the light, don’t put out the light)
(Put out the light, don’t put out the light)
