Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

Don't Believe the Night Time

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1971 Schroder Music Company, renewed 1999.

Don't believe the night time,
You wake in the dark
And a terror is sitting on your heart.
But with the morning light,
Oh boy, the rotten face is gone
That grinned at you and told you
You were wrong, wrong, wrong.
Oh boy!
And though the night will come again,
Until then, you hear,
You won't believe a word
The grinning night will chatter in your ear.
Don't believe the night time.
