Midnight Hour

Originally performed by Motown artist Wilson Pickett
A # 21 Top 40 hit in 1965, it also hit # 1 on the R&B charts

I'm gonna wait till the midnight hour,
That's when my love comes tumblin' down,
I'm gonna wait till the midnight hour,
A when there's no one else around.

I'm gonna take you girl and hold ya,
And do all the things I told ya,
In the midnight hour - Oh baby, yes I am.

I'm gonna wait till the stars come out,
And start to twinkle in your eye,
I'm gonna wait till the midnight hour,
That's when my love begins to shine.

You're the only girl I know,
That really loves me so,
In the midnight hour.
