Baby can't wait
Baby gotta go
Gonna do a number
On the late night show
Do a little song
Do a little dance
Gonna make the best
Of her big chance

Don't really matter
If she don't or if she do
Tryin' to make the best of
The hometown blues

I got a friend
Got a little girl
Said she's the best
In the whole wide world
Said it so good
Said its unreal
Might not last
But it's no big deal

Don't really matter
If she don't or if she do
Tryin' to make the best of
The hometown blues

Baby, save me, save me, save me
With your sweet smile
Honey, I really need your love
To help me kill a little bit o' time

All of the girls
Run with the crowd
They go wild
When the lights go down
They got a little money
Live in a dream
Want to be the queen
Of their little scene

Don't really matter
If she don't or if she do
Tryin' to make the best of
The hometown blues
