Inspired by a previous question here

Up is a surprise,
Down is to deny.
Under folds down,
Over, a small pie,

In begins at night,
Out is who attends,
On tends to excite,
Off comes with a bend.

It is:

Turn.

Up is a surprise:

Turn up means to find something you lost, "it will turn up".

Down is to deny

turn down is to deny a request.

Under folds down

Turn under is to fold something downwards.

Over, a small pie

A turnover is a small pie.

In begins at night

Turn in means to go to bed

Out is who attends

Turn out is who shows up (like to a party or show)

On tends to excite

Turn on is sexy time.

Off comes with a bend

A Turn off is like turning on a road? Like a bend?
