Thursday walking in the arcade precinct
Jackie was looking so bad
Couple of girls from the catholic school
Turning their heads to look back
They were all sixteen, fifteen, fourteen
Just getting away from their dads
Busy ???? grabbing things for free
Over by the magazine rack

Lalalalalala lalala lala
Lalalalalala lalala lala

That was that
And this was then
And that's what girls are for
Hangin' round arcade precincts foodhall
or even shopping malls

Well I know
What you know
And you know
A scarecrow
And they go
Where we go
And we could all go
to a go-go
lalalalalala lalala lala x 4

Well I'm glad I met you at the precinct
We had some good times
Hangin' with the wild life

But the ladies from the arcade
Are drinking cherrycooley (?)
They're never gonna behave
