Who Work At Night


Some people have to
work at night... And
they must struggle on...
Until the world is getting
up...To greet another
dawn... And that is sel-
dom pleasant or... An
easy thing to do... No
matter what the wages or
... The goal they have
in view... For while their
neighbors slumber, they
...Have hours they must
keep... And when the
others are awake... They
have to be asleep... And
usually they do not have
... The vigor and the vim
... Of those who labor in
the light... And share
the social swim... But
they deserve a lot of
thanks... And all the
praise in sight... Because
they keep the world alive
... Throughout the weary
night.
