Undercover of the Night

The Rolling Stones

Hear the screams from Center 42
Loud enough to bust your brains out
The opposition's tongue is cut in two
Keep off the streets 'cause you're in danger
One hundred thousand disparos Lost in the jails in South America
Curl up baby
Curl up tight Curl up baby
Keep it all out of sight Undercover
Keep it all out of sight Undercover of the night
The sex police are out there on the streets Make sure the past laws are not broken The race militia has got itchy fingers
All the way from New York back to Africa
Curl up baby
Keep it all out of sight Curl up baby Sleep with all out of sight
Curl up baby
Keep it all out of sight Undercover Undercover Undercover
Keep it all out of sight Undercover of the night
All the young men they've rounded up
Sent to camps back in the jungle And people whisper, people double-talk
At once their fathers act so humble All the young girls they have got the blues They're heading on back to Center 42

Keep it undercover Keep it out of sight Keep it undercover Keep it out of sight Undercover
Keep it out of sight Undercover
Keep it out of sight Undercover of the night
Down in the bars, the girls are painted blue
Done up in lace, done up in rubber The john's are jerky little G.I. Joe's
On R&R from Cuba and Russia The smell of sex
The smell of suicide All these things I just can't keep inside Undercover Keep it all out of sight Undercover of the night Undercover of the night Undercover of the night Undercover of the night Undercover
Undercover, undercover the night
