We flew into town on Sunday, had to find a place by Monday Tried Bridgeport and Westport, 'til we found a place that we thought would do 157 Riverside Avenue.
Saugatuck River's flowin', Mother nature's colors were showin' So cold, so rainy, we couldn't help feelin' blue Not enough time, too many things to do.
We met a young girl on Main street, wanted to just pass her by She was homely, so lonely, She said, "Can I make love to you." We shouted 157 Riverside Avenue.
It's over, Miss Lena, we're leaving. Such a pleasant stay, I must say. So nice, so easy, we hate to say goodbye to you At 157 Riverside Avenue.

Sim from Cleveland RocksGot turned on to REO by my oldest brother and his friends way back when. I thought that they were very tight musically. Good times, good music back then.
William from Reno, NvI'll be the first. I absolutely love this song (as well as most other REO stuff. I especially like the Decade of Rock and Roll version. Too bad Gary isn't with us anymore. I guess it's true that greatness doesn't live forever. K/H D
