"Drive-In Movies" as written by and Raycharles Jack Lamontagne....
I spent all my childhood years
Wishin' that I looked like a movie-Star
Cigarette behind my ear,
Leanin' up against a muscle car

Wanna know all the things that I shouldn't know
Got smokes that I stole from the Seven-Eleven
Everybody's at the drive-in, I wanna go

I wanna be the guy who doesn't like to fight,
But who could kick your ass if you touch his girl
I wanna be the guy who breaks all the rules
But the cops let him off cause they think he's cool

Wanna know all the things that I shouldn't know
Got smokes that I stole from the Seven-Eleven
Everybody's at the drive-in, I wanna go

Drive-in Movies
Drive-in Movies

Drive-in Movies
Drive-in Movies

Grew up fast in that Nebraska town,
Nothin' goin on and even less to do
Mom's at work, and dad's never around,
So me and the guys we're skippin' school

Wanna know all the things that I shouldn't know
Got smokes that I stole from the Seven-Eleven
Everybody's at the drive-in, I wanna go

Drive-in Movies
Drive-in Movies
Drive-in Movies

I wanna be Brando
In the Wild One
I wanna be somethin'
To someone
'Cause nothin' ever happens in this Town,
The same old crew, hangin' around
Jus' waitin for some shit to go down
We love our Drive-in Movies

Drive-in Movies
Drive-in Movies

Now I'm grown, kids of my own,
I never thought I could be a Dad
Me and my girl, we're goin' strong,
Still the best friend that I ever had

Now I know all the things that I didn't know
Got smokes, but I buy em' now, I guess I'm old
Drive-in's just an empty lot that no one mows

I miss those Drive-in Movies
Drive-in Movies
Drive-in Movies
Drive-in Movies

Drive-in Movies
Drive-in Movies
Drive-in Movies
Drive-in Movies

I spent all my childhood years,
Wishin' that I looked like a movie-star

    Song MeaningComing to terms with adolescent ideals and innocence lost, and realizing they are just a relic of a lost-era of your life, just like all those derelict drive-ins still hanging around.
