fly-by-night (anglais) — undependable; untrustworthy
The expression suggests the idea that the operation closes up and flees under the cover of darkness rather than in the clear light of day.

Example: That trading company took in a lot of money
from trusting investors and then closed up. It was a fly-by-night operation.

« fly-by-night » dans des paroles

Trust your inner vision, don't let others change your mind

And then you really gotta burn it up
And make another fly by night
Get a run for your money and take a chance
And it'll turn out right

Bucks Fizz - Making Your Mind Up

Who's talking to the people who left
I swallow the wind, I swallow my cries
I settle my steps on someone else's
I fly into the wind, I fly by night
In the eardrums, in the tempo
I see the sea, Normandy

Benjamin Biolay - Enough About Me

I'm a young, 24 year old nigga
I come to take this game and bring it to me
We gon' be here
Ain't no fly by night nigga
We gon' be here two years, three years
I got this shit

Tyga - Spitfire

Fly by night, away from here
Change my life again
Fly by night, goodbye my dear
My ship isn't coming and I just can't pretend

You don't have to be a superstar
Boy, I like you right where you are
I know this ain't no fly by night
I promise, if you were mine...

Jessica Simpson - If You Were Mine

Tonight she'll be the devil's bride
Tonight, tonight, the devil's bride

I've seen her fly by night
the devil at her side.
They cursed and swore us hell and disaster.

Lingua Mortis Orchestra - The Devil's Bride

There's so much in a name and so much more in you
Few understand the union of woman and man
And sex and a tingle is where they assume that it land
But that's fly by night for you and the sky I write
For in these cold Chi night's moon, you my light
If heaven had a height, you would be that tall

Common - The Light

Fly away, little bird
Fly away, flap your wings
Fly by night
Like the early Roman kings

Bob Dylan - Early Roman Kings

Amateur at love
I'm a prince and a pauper
I sleep by day and fly by night
Among traveling hearts
If I loved, then maybe I'd stay longer
