[Verse 1]
Ev’ry night yes ev’ry night, right across the way from me,
Ev’ry night, yes, ev’ry night, something’s there that I can see,
There’s a sweet young girlie who retires early
Though I don’t mean any wrong I always sing this song.

[Chorus 1]
Oh! My love won’t you please pull down the curtain
Oh! My love can’t you see I’m madly flirtin’
Oh! My love won’t you please put out that light
I can look at you for an hour or two but I can’t stay up all night

[Verse 2]
Ten o’clock, at ten o’clock,
I can see her standing there,
Twelve o’clock, at twelve o’clock, she starts taking down her hair,
One A. M. each morning I stand there a yawning
It is almost break of day before she hears me say.

[Chorus 2]
Oh my love won’t you please pull down the curtain
Oh! My love can’t you see I’m madly flirtin’
Oh! My love won’t you please put out that light
I’m here a peepin my wife is sleepin’ if she catches me goodnight
