  • Well our hearts beat like thunder
    I don't know why they don't explode
    You got your hands in my back pockets
    And Sam Cooke's singin' on the radio
    You say that I'm the boy who can make it all come true
    Well I'm tellin' ya that I don't know if I know what to do

    You say that's all right, hold tight
    Well I don't even know if I'm doin' this right
    Well all right, hold tight
    We can stay out all day or we can run around all night
    Well all night, all night
    Well it's time to go home
    And I ain't even done with the night

    Well I don't know no good come-ons
    And I don't know no cool lines
    I feel the heat of your frustration
    I know it's burnin you up deep down inside
    You say that I'm the boy who can make it all come true
    Well I'm tellin ya that I don't know if I know what to do

    You say that's all right, hold tight
    Well I don't even know if I'm doin' this right
    Well all right, hold tight
    We can stay out all day or we can run around all night
    Well all night, all night
    Well it's time to go home
    And I ain't even done with the night Writer/s: JOHN MELLENCAMP
