  • Tell me where you've been to point me to the door
    I've seen you around but I really can't be sure
    And all the hatchet men busy climbing up the wall
    Banging on the window tearing down the hall

    And the last chance girl in a first dance swirl
    Leans her head down on the wooden floor
    Won't be dancing anymore

    And where do they go when the thrills have gone?
    And the last song plays down at Babylon
    Five hundred kids shout "what's the deal?"
    It's a very confusing way to feel

    The radio is silent except for wicked bands
    Sounding like the last one always in demand
    And now the city is off limits to everyone in blue
    Nothing getting in there no one's getting through

    And it's no surprise, when the last light dies
    And the girl upon the wooden floor
    Won't be dancing anymore

    And where do they go when the thrills have gone?
    And the last song plays down at Babylon
    Five hundred kids shout "what's the deal?"
    It's a very confusing way to feel

    Ah, ah, ah... Writer/s: JOHN LAWLER
