(Let’s get it rollin’)

 

Once upon a winter in a lullaby song

A shot of Johnny Walker and a bad girl bone

And a prizefighter outta east Bayonne

 

Admitted I’m a hitter with some liquid nerve

Told him I could show him but he took my word

Made him wonder, Ought I be concerned?

 

I got up at 1:30 tracked me to the back room got a little flirty

“Back it up, don’t make me say it again”.

“You can spare me the charms how we’re wasting the stars

you’ll never capture a thief if you follow the laws.

‘Cuz there’s no free thrill

although the night’s young still and so I might be willing..

If it’s a last chance, moon dance in the aisle, duet-style, with our gangster out...

The night’ll be stolen”.

 

Needed no explaining cuz I told no lies

Said he didn’t blame me and he won’t ask why

He might like it a little radical?

Settled with the barman and he grabbed his coat

Headed for the exit and his Cadillac boat

A ’57 Eldorado

 

80 East to Gee Doubleya…

“We should hit this bridge again the middle of Summer rag top down polluted wind in our hair”

I said, “Spare me the charms you can save it because

you’ll never capture a thief if you follow the laws.

‘Cuz there’s no free thrill and now you just sound silly so while I’m still willing…

Gimme a last chance, moon dance in the aisle, duet-style, with our

gangster out

You get where I'm going”?

 

Pulled the Eldorado to the nearest sign

Stickers on the windows made it seem just right

No bouncers and no velvet rope

Hollered for a dollar ‘cuz the old jukebox

Offered up The Stones and had my fave ‘Hot Rocks’.

Punched the numbers for ‘Heart Of Stone’.

 

Song kicked in at 2:30

Some man who saw me dancing started getting little flirty

“Angel eyes, where you been all my life”?

I said, “Spare me the charms how we’re wasting the stars.

You’ll never capture a thief if you follow the laws

‘Cuz there’s no free thrill although the night’s young still and so I might be willing..

If it’s a last chance, moon dance in the aisle, duet-style, with our gangster out”.

He said, “Then let’s get it rolling”.

“See ya later Prizefighter”.
