When the lights went off in Hogtown
The strippers closed their eyes
The arcade quarters dropped
Like boiler room flies
The high beams and high rollers
Fishtail through the night
When the lights went off in Hogtown
The stars were shining bright

Oh, let the good times roll
From Honest Ed's
Down to Cherry Road

The alley cats in Cabbagetown
Are licking at their wounds
And knocking over garbage cans
With rodents and raccoons
Diplomatico's a stillframe
From some old black and white
When the lights went off in Hogtown
The stars were shining bright

Oh, let the good times roll
From the Record Man
Down to Cherry Road

Oh, let the good times roll
From Club Paradise
Down to Cherry Road

Now the old men have no shelf life
Down at the Polish Hall
They've fired up their flashlights
On a sleeping disco ball
Now the smart girls just got pretty
And they're not going home tonight
When the lights went off in Hogtown
The stars were shining bright
Yeah, the stars were shining bright
Oh, the stars were shining bright
