Small Town Saturday Night

Album: Past The Point Of Rescue (1991)
  • There's an Elvis movie on the marquee sign,
    We've all seen at least three times
    Everybody's broke, Bobby's got a buck
    Put a dollar's worth of gas in his pickup truck
    We're going' ninety miles an hour down a dead end road
    What's the hurry, son, where you gonna go?

    We're gonna howl at the moon, shoot out the light
    It's a small town Saturday night
    It's a small town Saturday night

    Lucy's got her lipstick on a little too bright
    Bobby's gettin' drunk and lookin' for a fight
    Liquor on his breath, trouble on his mind
    And Lucy's just a kid along for the ride
    Got a six-pack of beer and a bottle of wine
    Gotta be bad just to have a good time

    They're gonna howl at the moon, shoot out the light
    It's a small town Saturday night
    It's a small town Saturday night

    Bobby told Lucy: "The world ain't round
    Drops off sharp at the edge of town
    Lucy, you know the world must be flat
    'Cause when people leave town, they never come back"
    They go ninety miles an hour to the city limits sign
    Put the pedal to the metal 'fore they change their mind

    They howl at the moon, shoot out the light
    It's a small town Saturday night
    Yeah, howl at the moon, shoot out the light
    Yeah, it's a small town Saturday night
    It's a small town Saturday night
    It's a small town Saturday night Writer/s: HANK DEVITO, PATRICK ALGER
