Nightshift Lyrics

Artist: The Commodores

Music & Lyrics : F. Golde - W. Orange - D. Lambert

Marvin, he was a friend of mine
And he could sing a song
His heart in every line
Marvin sang of the joy and pain
He opened up our minds
And I still can hear him say
Aw talk to me so you can see
What's going on
Say you will sing your songs
Forevermore (evermore)

Gonna be some sweet sounds
Coming down on the nightshift
I bet you're singing proud
Oh I bet you'll pull a crowd
Gonna be a long night
It's gonna be all right
On the nightshift
Oh you found another home
I know you're not alone
On the nightshift

Jackie (Jackie), hey what'you doing now
It seems like yesterday
When we were working out
Jackie (Jackie, oh) you set
The world on fire
You came and gifted us
Your love it lifted us
Higher and higher
Keep it up and
We'll be there
At your side
Oh say you will sing
Your songs forevermore (evermore)

Gonna be some sweet sounds
Coming down on the nightshift
I bet you're singing proud
Oh I bet you'll pull a crowd
Gonna be a long night
It's gonna be all right
On the nightshift
Oh you found another home
I know you're not alone
On the nightshift

Gonna miss your sweet voice
That soulful voice
On the nightshift
We all remember you
Ooh the songs are coming through
At the end of a long day
It's gonna be okay
On the nightshift
You found another home
I know you're not alone
On the nightshift

by TommyGoodTimes on 5/1/2010 10:09pm
This song gets stuck in my head. Last night a buddy of mine and I came home from the bar and sat and his car and talked for literally an hour and we just played this song in the background on repeat. Such a great song. Every time I hear a song and can not tell what it is, just hear faint music, ya know? This song always pops into my head. Always disappointed because it never turns out to be this song! Love it.

i love this song
by Kris W on 12/22/2010 3:37pm
I had to be about 10 when this came out, making me about 9 when both artists passed on...just barely enough to remember the events. My parents are avid listeners of both Jackie's and Marvin's music and passed it along to my brother and I. This song is a fitting tribute to two old souls who have left us with their beautiful music. Thank you Marvin & Jackie. And thank you Commodores.
by APG on 12/22/2010 10:03pm
Every time I hear this song it makes me sad, but I never think of the same thing. The lyrics to this song are meant to make you happy but it does the opposite, which is somewhat ironic. This is the song I want to be played at my funeral.
by laughagoon on 1/4/2011 5:03pm
We are currently using this song in dance class for a warm up and I must say it is soo great to hear and move to something so inspirational and moving
by Greg on 1/6/2011 1:24pm
can anyone tell me who Jackie is? I know Marvin Gaye, but Jackie? who is that? Excuse my ignorance lol!
by Ciprian on 1/26/2011 1:06pm
One of the most memorable masterpieces ever! Although this was dedicated to Jackie Wilson and Marvin Gaye, so many of us find the lyrics so very touching and emotion-filled whenever we think of those who we care about, and who may or may not be amongst us... Life is a struggle - that of one fighting to find its path throughout life, while in fact it's always been about one thing: love and inner peace...
by leparkiras on 2/11/2011 11:34am
i love the song. i must alway listen to it daily to be comfortable, even now.
by bibi on 2/11/2011 1:54pm

by Timus on 2/16/2011 6:59pm
It was a perfect moment of total harmony between men and God, when this song was born...Sad,hopeful, joyful, soft, strong...perfect vibration. Thank you God and thank you Commodores!!!!

by Minnesota skys on 6/28/2011 4:37pm
when this song came out I was still in high school, its good tune, course everytime I hear it, takes me back, the nite shift is a good tune to crank-up, and let it verberate through out the house,

by Dozie, Nigeria. on 5/1/2012 4:05pm
there is somthing fascinating about this song. Its sweet and poignant at the same time. It gives you a glimpse of the ephemeral nature of man and yet his ability to live on forever. When ever i hear this song I remember my best friend and mentor, Chibuike, who was involed in fatal automobile accident . Jackie and Marvin lives on, and so does chibuike.

It's gonna be all right
On the nightshift
You've found another home
We know you are not alone
You are now with GOD
We miss u Dad, It aint the same without you...

We always remember you...

God bless the Commodores

i first heard this song in 1986 and has since become a part of me. I love every word of the song. I anytime i hear the song, it reminds me of my lovely mum (RIP) who passed on in 1986 and my dad in 2011 (RIP). The song evokes sweeet memories of this great uncelebrated parents. Nice one from Commodores. You're simply great!

Absolutely beautiful song!!! They performed it last night at the grande finale regatta party on St Maarten. Usually thousands of people but small crowd because most islanders had not heard of the Commodores. Everyone loved the performance. I explained that song to some locals because being that they mostly only hear reggae and calypso music they had never heard of Marvin or Jackie. They had only heard "Brick House" on radio but also appreciated explanation of it. Love the Commodores!!! Memorable performance!!! Keep it up!!!

by Joe on 8/22/2013 1:19pm
I'm 41 years old & primarily listen to alt & punk but one of my all time favorite songs it Night Shift. Bar none the best song from the 80s. I hope the Commodores realize what a gift they gave the world or at least me with this. To them and all those who feel the same, I send my love. You are worthy of every drop of it.
by Lethu on 8/27/2013 2:04am
This is a real masterpiece and certain is timeless as well. Keeps coming back to me now and again, the joy this song brings to me is unyielding, of the highest notch every time. Much love to the Commodores, this is MUSIC.

Musical greats paying tribute to musical greats, don't get better than that
by Terese on 4/16/2017 5:27pm
It made me sad to see two people post, "Who is Jackie?" Seriously??? Even if these people are young, there is a little invention called the Internet. Use it and discover Jackie Wilson, one of the greatest singers EVER. Marvin Gaye was also a great talent. Nightshift was a beautiful tribute to both.
by Muza on 7/21/2017 1:17pm
Wow this song tho I really like it whn am listening to it I jst can't control ma tears more especially dat "Jackie part " wow imnandi nyani
