It's late in the evenin'
You're just about to lay down
What's that at your backdoor
Did you hear a strange sound girl?
Honey I just saw your light
Here I come baby
It's the usual time of the night

I can't help but want you
Ever since I've known you
I would never hurt ya
I don't wanna own you girl
I just wanna hold you tight
Here I come baby
It's the usual time of the night

I know you don't love me
I know you don't need me
But if you ever want me
Just turn on your back porch light
At the usual time of the night

I been down to Texas
I been to New Orleans
I was born to ramble
You were born to haunt my dreams
Anytime the moon is right
Here I come baby
It's the usual time of the night

I know you don't love me
I know you don't need me
But if you ever want me
Just leave on your back porch light
At the usual time of the night

Here I come
Here I come baby
