coke machine glowin' through a parking lot.
you called it a room with a view
it was the best night of pool that i ever shot
and I made a lot of money too
looking for some company in the weekly scene
and that just had to be you
I aint seen you since new Orleans and never did figure out where you ran off to
I know I looked back last time you saw me but lately I’ve been doing alright
won a tournament last week in Oklahoma city i sold half of this town tonight
I got some cocaine if you want some
the best that i could find
figured you and me could sit here and talk all night
if that big ole guy out in the car don't mind

like old times
screw off the top on a bottle of wine
livin out our own kind of American dre-eam
like old times
your goal was always the same as mine
you didn’t want to throw a fishin line in that old main stream

i aint expecting anybody but you
i don’t know who this could be at the door
well I’m pretty sure you've got a clue
and I’ll bet you've been to this hotel before
well you put the you know what in the bathroom but
don't flush it down just yet
we'll put your pager in your suit case
and i'll get the window while you light a cigarette

it'll be like old times
just like the old times
livin out our own kind of American dream
like old times
your goal was always the same as mine
you didn't want to throw a fishing line in that old main stream

No sir, officer you don't understand we're just two old friends drinking wine
I’m sure she is but that's not all she is, she's also an old friend of mine
I got her ole high school picture right here in my wallet
from 1982
no sir officer no offense taken
you have a good night too

good thing we didn't throw this here away
baby turn up the radio
I’m sure the cop knew what we were up to i guess he just decided to let us go
oh don't make such a big deal about the picture
that was just something I kept
hey don't get all sentimental on me now girl
you haven't even told me what your new name is yet

old times
just like the old times
living out our old kind of American dream
like old times
your goal was always the same a mine
you didn't want to throw a fishin’ line in that old main street
and you didn’t

    General Commentok so i guess it's a cover of a travis snider song that sean & buddies have been covering for a while. the david j. cover on youtube is really good, too.

    General CommentI think it's "I seen an ad that just had to be you" instead of "that just had to be you"

    i can't stop listening to this cover.
