Hey, Lord. The night is friendly, The stars are winkin', My sleepy-headed baby's eyes are blinkin,' I hold him in my arms and sit here thinking, Lordy! What a sweet world. The night is friendly, With voices croonin', And gals and fellows in the shadows spoonin', And clouds that open up to let the moon in, Lordy! What a sweet world. Now, I ain't callin' this life perfect, But I am thanking my maker above, Because for everything That you don't like, There's a million little things that you love, oooh. A bell is chimin', To toll the hour, The sky is dripping light on every livin' flower, It like to drown us in a silver shower, Lordy! What a sweet world. I'm so happy, Happy! Happy to be livin', Yes sir! Livin' on a friendly night, On a friendly night, In a friendly world, In a friendly world. My heart is happy, Thanks to the Lord!
