Let's go out, we'll take no prisoners
Lonely love, gotta leave it behind
We look like a million dollars
Every time they look at us, we'll blow their mind

Let's get wrecked on Rolling Rock and stroll down to the sea
I'll come to my senses there and then you'll come to me
Let's forget about all the ringing telephones
Let's forget about the boring brick suburban homes
Let's go out, we'll take this town
Let's wrestle this city to the ground

Let's go out we'll take no prisoners
(Lonely love, we'll leave it behind)
Lonely love, gotta leave it behind
(Every time they look at us, we'll blow their mind)
We look like a million dollars
(Every time they look at us, we'll blow their mind)
Every time they look at us, we'll blow their mind

Let's go make some history
Before we fall apart
True love might escape us, girl
But at least we got some heart

Let's forget about all our friends and family
Let's forget about all our lovers, enemies
Let's go out when the sun goes down
Let's wrestle this city to the ground

We'll go out, we'll take no prisoners
(Lonely love, we'll leave it behind)
Lonely love, gotta leave it behind
We look like one million dollars
(Every time they look at us, we'll blow their mind)
Every time they look at us, we'll blow their mind

We'll go out, we'll take no prisoners
(Lonely love, we'll leave it behind)
We look like a million dollars
(Every time they look at us, we'll blow their mind)
Every time they look at us, we'll blow their mind
(Every time they look at us, we'll blow their mind)
Every time they look at us, we'll blow their mind
Every time they look at us, we'll blow their mind

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it is Rolling Rock, seeing as it's a brand of beer.

    General CommentSome people say Joel's songs are cheesy. I think those people are in denial.

    This song's not that difficult to understand. It's sbout going out with your love and just having fun. Forget about everything else and just enjoy the time you have together.

    I really love this song. My boyfriend and I consider it to be "our song". :)

    General CommentWhat am I missing ? I can't believe more people aren't into this song...Yet another example of feeling isolated I guess.

    This song just makes me want to play it all out. Any takers?

    General CommentI'm a little confused by this one. It sounds like a young, empowered couple who just want to be with each other and change the world and not care what other people think about them. They want to defy the odds: "Everytime they look at us we'll blow their minds"

    The part that confuses me is "True love might escape us girl, but at least we got some heart"
    To me, that's saying that as hard as they try to be, they are not in love.

    So, this makes me think that this song is actually about friends. They've had it with their lives, they want something new and better.
    "Let's forget about all our friends and family
    Let's forget about all our lovers, enemies
    Let's go out when the sun goes down
    Let's wrestle this city to the ground"
    They want to leave behind everything and start fresh, the two of them.
