Dreamboats, Darling

lyrics

are ya sick and tired of Wednesday nights at the bar?
Let's go chasin smoke and firetrucks
see who's dancing by the river and watching this city burn
we've seen her dabble with fire a couple times
and pork and guns and skin and crack and vice
but she's going up tonight tonight she's really coming down

I wanna be your dreamboat darling we'll sing these ancient songs
cruise down the river and hope that water don't burn

if that ain't enough to get you off there's a brownstone just a corner up
the boys inside will give you a real hard time but they'll send you on your way
the hospital's been sending people back
you're coming off that oxy booze and smack
or clamber up in back baby we can make it right

step into my dreamboat darling I'll dance with you against the night
cruise down this river and hope that water don't light

I guess a Southside barn caught to fire
a couple kids got shot down by guns for hire
the city's closing schools and slapping fines
even ma and dad have joined the fight
stock up on leathers weed and beer
do your wrecking with me out past the pier
bring your dancing shoes and hold on tight
under the moon and the firelight

I wanna be your dreamboat darling we'll sing these ancient songs
cruise down the river and hope that water don't burn
