I walked into this bar last night
To give my mind a holiday.
I was down on my luck, in need of a quick vacation
This was just my kind of place.

She walked in like a cold wet treasure.
Sister came in from the rain.
She said “please excuse me, I don’t mean to intrude but,
Something tells me you’re in pain”.

There ain’t nothing like a stranger looking out for you
To make you feel like you’re at home.
And ain’t it something when she’s someone sweet and beautiful
And you don’t spend the night alone.

Well, I flunked out of high school and college
But I got a good job working nights at the harbor place.
I ain’t got no ladylove, at least none that I acknowledge
But damn I dig this lady’s taste.

There ain’t nothing like a stranger looking out for you
To make you feel like you’re at home.
And ain’t it something when she’s someone sweet and beautiful
And you don’t spend the night alone.

There ain’t nothing like a stranger to
Make you feel like you’re at home..
Pick your head up and bring that smile back and
Turn the night to something new.
