I know it’s annoying borrowing your brother’s car
but mine won’t start and it’s Sunday.
Soon a line of headlights peering down the avenue
could find you there in a lawn chair
next to our old El Camino with the racing stripes
On cruise night.
Dude, just make it happen.
I can’t take another week of feeling lame
with the same old tin can on my ten speed
circling the Dairy Queen while jacked up rides idle at me.
I wanna rock the RPM between the reds and greens
On cruise night
Drive a while in one direction and we’ll turn around
On cruise night.

    Song MeaningThis one is pretty obvious.

    "This is a song about teenage boys and cars. For some reason teenage boys always want a car. I don't remember why. I have a car now and I hate having a car. When you're a teenager for some reason, in Winnipeg at least, a small town in the middle of nowhere. You have to drive to nowhere in order to get somewhere. At least that's how it feels when you're 16. On every Sunday night, all the teenagers get in their cars and they drive all the way down this one street in Winnipeg, then they drive all the way back. And then they drive back a little further. And then they park and get some ice cream and then they talk to each other. Mostly they just drive. It's really weird. They call it cruise night and that's what I call this song."
