Ear of the Night

Al Stewart

 

You put your tongue in the ear of the night
Expecting rejection but finding instead
A sudden connection that left you surprised
And gave you electrical thoughts in your head

Emboldened by this you attempted a kiss
On the brow of a mystery passing you by
And thus were afforded a simple reward
In the shape of a chord from a street corner choir

Through her window you could see her
With her solitary air
You felt a sudden twinge inside you
From her military hair

And though you’d have normally acted quite formally
This was a moment to open a door
You instantly mated and constantly dated
Though your mother hated the clothes that she wore

- Oh well
