Vicki Lawrence – Ships In The Night

Vicki Lawrence – Ships In The Night

I saw her look and I realized
She was seducing my man with her eyes
And yet I couldn’t blame you
For she was delicious
And smiled me assurance and still I was jealous
Then you took me home and finally alone
You set myself down and you sang me this song

Baby, ships in the night
Eyes that are flashing
Flirting and passing with time on their hands
She’s a ship in the night looking for love
And nobody’s taking your man

You remember the fight on the way to the party
And we both went inside, neither saying we’re sorry
And because he was handsome
And you were disturbed
Through his whole boring story, I hung on each word

Acting as though I enjoyed him so
Playing a game
I’m a woman, you know
And nothing was said in the car going home
And my ego exploded, ’cause your jealousy showed
And then in our bedroom you stalked and you talked
And I quieted your thunder and sang you this song

Baby, ships in the night
Eyes that are flashing
Bragging about all his trips around the world
He’s a ship in the night
Looking for love and nobody’s taking your girl

I cannot follow through each waking day
And I know some lovely eyes get in your way
But then you’re a big boy
Baby, I know when the day’s sun surrenders
My ship sails home to me

Ships in the night
Eyes that are flashing
Flirting and passing with time on their hands
She’s a ship in the night
Looking for love and nobody’s taking my man
