Don Pardo V/O: Once again – Leon & Mary Russell.

Leon Russell:
“Five o’clock in the morning
The party’s still going, still going strong
There’s a conversation over in the corner
And it’s dancing on a lie.

Mary Russell:
When the music is moving
Everybody’s getting down, getting down in their stocking feet
Sleepy eyes are peeping
From the window, from across the street.

Leon & Mary Russell:
Oh, and it looks like daylight
Gonna catch me up
Gonna catch me up again
Some people are getting up
We’re just getting in.

Mary Russell:
It’s the only, only, only time
That me and my baby can unwind.

Leon Russell:
I said I swear to myself, yes I did
Time and time again
That I would give up a night life
And start laying in
But, wait a minute.

Backup Singers:
Ain’t easy!

Mary Russell:
Saying no, no to my friends
‘Cause it don’t get started
Until everyone else is in.

Leon & Mary Russell:
Oh, and it looks like daylight
Gonna catch me up
Gonna catch me up again
Some people are getting up
We’re just getting in

[ break ]

Leon & Mary Russell:
Daylight
Gonna catch me up again.

[ a spastic Joe Cocker enters the stage, clutching a can of beer that constantly jumps out of its can ]

Joe Cocker:
Daylight
Gonna catch me up
Gonna catch me up again

Daylight
Gonna catch me up
Gonna catch me up again
Again, again, again!

[ The Russells and their band stop playing ]

Joe Cocker:
Daylight!Gonna catch me up!Gonna —

[ Joe Cocker chugs beer all over himself and flails to the floor ] [ The Russells and their band resume the final chords of the tune, to thunderous audience applause ]
