Lyrics are printed on the first Stratas LP, which I can't lay my hands on right now.

BUDDY ON THE NIGHTSHIFT
(Oscar Hammerstein II, Kurt Weill)

Hello there, buddy on the nightshift. I hope you slept all day
Until the moon came out and woke you up and sent you on your way.
Hello there, buddy on the nightshift. I hope you're feeling fine.
I left a lot of work for you to do on a long assembly line.
I wish I knew you better, but you never go my way,
For when one of us goes on the job, the other hits the hay.
Goodbye now, buddy on the nightshift, and push those planes along,
And when the sun comes out, I'll take your place, all wide awake and strong.
I'll follow you, you'll follow me, and how can we go wrong?

[Sung by Maude Maggart on "Kurt Weill in America," 2007.]

Thanks for finding the lyrics and the site.

At the same site, was Jake Heggie's "Once Upon a Universe," a great little piece.
