It was much more manly
surfing late at night
with all due respect to the governor
out of earshot of the lovers by the pier
near a Beauford island home, oh.

When she spoke in stanzas
never said before
with a stain of Palmol cigarettes
it was then she had grown
hipper than you'd known
so I end up staring
concentrating as her laugh washed over mine.

One of the dreams I had when I slept in the front room
was the one where suitors lined up by your bed
two of the winners were a captain of industry
and a micromanager from Tucson.

It was better to learn now than Christmastime
when I'm either frozen or I might have spilled the red wine
take all day to decide, you might as well
Let's see, now I thought, all day meant...
yeah, you see, now I thought all day meant...
all night long
oh, girl all night long
take too long
all night long
oh, go all night long
take too long
all night long
come on
but go all night long
take too long
all night long
but go all night long
in the rain
in the rain
of the sun
of the sun
in the rain
in the rain
of the sun
of the sun
in the rain
in the rain
of the sun
of the sun
in the rain
in the rain
of the sun
of the sun
[Fades out]
