Passing the word around the school yard
there's gonna be a gathering tonight
Tell your folks that you're going to the picture show
and Dave Gordo's gonna drive
Gonna drive his parents blue and white Plymouth Valiant
right over the Samoa Bridge
And my brother's got a friend's gotta friend's
gotta friend who says getting beer's gonna be a cinch
The waves are rolling in and out of my mind
The fire starts to die down slowly
What's ahead and what's behind
Well don't really mind cuz we're out all night
Gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta get up and go
To the Old Milwaukee
Somebody brought a boom box
and I'm listening to X as they're singing to me
Sing "Johnny hit and run Johnny hit and run
Johnny hit Johnny hit and run Pauline"
Well I'm standing knee deep
in a pile of last weekends dirty memories
And I'm singing a song about the good ol' days
about the way things used to be
Lap dancing with a girl I hardly know
but tonight she looks okay
Her boyfriend is working down town tonight
across from the arcade
Billy Joel's playing on the car radio
and he's singing to me about dying young
Tonight I'm only having fun
yeah tonight I'm only having fun
