Small Town Saturday Night Lyrics


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 dollars 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 and 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

They 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


Anyone else been there?lol

Sorry Pete, NO!

I was a singing Liverpudlian - worked in a Liverpool Office, got dolled up in our break and headed for the Cavern at lunch time. The Beatles were there every lunch time. We had hot dogs and coke (no alcohol) - dreamed at the stage, sometimes talked to the boys, then back to work for 1:oclock. I was a Cavern Club member....and my girlfriend who also lives on Vancouver Island (the reason we are here) - still has her Cavern club Membership card and dated. What the hell did I do with mine.

Pete,

Do you sing songs to your friends on the Hot Topics Forum?

RE: my theme song-memories

I thought maybe Pete was going nostalgic as an escape from the beatings he was taking on the Hot Topic Forum. On the other hand, as he points out, he has a tough skin--and knows how to deal it out also--so, on second thought, he will probably hold his own there, won't he. LOL

RE: my theme song-memories

I'm with ya' Pete. Here are the lyrics to one of my theme songs: reflects how I feel about my home town-Cottage Grove Oregon. It's "My Paradise"

My Paradise (by The Outfield)

Think i might get lucky tonight
Let my hair down get a little crazy, yeah
My reflection's doing alright
It don't take nothing to introduce suggestion
Everbody's got one thing on their mind
A set of wheels and a cranked up radio
In this town there might be nowhere to hide
In this town there might be nowhere to go but

On my left - to my right
This is my paradise
You can call it what you like - i know
This is my paradise

I might get lucky again
I got a deal i know won't break me yeah
If i can afford what money can't buy
There's nothing better than a small town lady
I'm no different to the boy next door
A good time's the same for everyone
I don't need another chance to be sure
Since the day i was born i've always felt secure 'cos

On my left - to my right
This is my paradise
You can call it what you like - i know
This is my paradise

Reputation's got a price of its own
But not too many people want to pay for it
Everybody needs a place to come from
Everybody needs a place where they belong

Everybody - this is my paradise
On my left - to my right
This is my paradise
You can call it what you like - i know
This is my paradise

RE: my theme song-memories

It was a lot of fun growing up in a small town in the fifties,unfortunately we didn't realize how good we had it.
As far as other state of minds I have been in.-
You can only get away with poking fun at pomposity for a little while.Once they catch on you aren't quite as Stoopid as they thunk it's time to put the pedal to the metal.

Small town fun

I'm a decade behind you Pete, but it was fun growing up in a small town in the 60's also. I graduated in '69. What a good time we had (at least what I remember about it--it's a little foggy if you know what I mean!).
