She's my go-go baby
she's my honky tonk girl
She dances on my table
She dances on a pole

Some cities Born,
Some cities Burn
Some cities Die,
Some cities Learn
Some cities take the
worst of the turn
And if it ain't your business
then it's not your concern
Listen, Brick buildings
Broken windows, smoke stacks
Tell me somethings broken
And there's blood tracks
And if you see the train coming
you're gonna relax
So tell the facts Ma'am
only the facts
Stand down what you gonna do
she's a wild one
I'm a wild one too


She's my go-go baby
she's my honky tonk girl
She dances on my table
She dances on a pole

She's my go-go baby
she's my honky tonk girl
She dances on my table
She dances on a pole

Midnight and I'm rolling on
Nobody sees me coming home
And out here man
A lot of things can go wrong
Shhh! Listen to my song
The Morgue is busy
day after day
Stick it on the line
and throw it away
And if you see it coming on
Then you got it made
And the Grave Diggers laugh
As they rot and decay

Say it loud,
What you gonna do
she's a wild one
And I'm a wild one too

She's my go-go baby
she's my honky tonk girl
She dances on my table
She dances on a pole

I'm a wild one
I'm a wild one

    My InterpretationCorrect lyrics from the booklet:


    She's my go go baby
    She's my honkey tonk girl
    She dances on my table
    She dances on a pole

    Some cities born
    Some cities burn
    Some cities die
    Some cities learn
    Some cities take the worst of the turn
    And if it ain't your business then it's not your concern

    Brick buildings, broken windows, smoke stacks
    Tell me something's broken and there's blood on the tracks
    And if you see the train comin' you're gonna relax
    So tell me the facts, ma'am, only the facts

    Stand down, what you gonna do?
    She's a wild one, I'm a wild one too

    Midnight and I'm rollin' on nobody sees me comin' home
    And out here man a lot of things can go wrong
    Shhh, listen to my song
    The morgue is busy day after day
    Stick it on the line and throw it away
    And if you see it comin' on then you got it made
    And the grave diggers laugh as they rot and decay
