Well, there's a brand new place I've founda Where people go from miles arounda They come from ev'rywhere and if you drop in there You might see anyone in towna
Going to a go-go Going to a go-go Don't you want to go (a-one more time, yeah!) I'm going to a go-go
Going to a go-go Going to a go-go Don't you want to go (a-one more time, yeah!)
