He waits until the lights are out,
And they're safely sound asleep.
In 7 seconds, he's inside the car
A minute later, down the street.
Next car on his list tonight,
A bright metallic blue Mercedes Benz.
It's always the same,
What a dangerous game,

and the victim loves to hide
And so in the taking,

60 seconds To the vanishing point,
Take it from me boy
He's g-g-got to be a...
Midnight driver, midnight driver
Midnight driver, under the veil of darkness
