Rhinestone kid on a freeway star
an '87 pick-up an' a red guitar
playin' like an angel with a broken grin
a song o true love fo' his girl darlene
They haven't seen each other for a year or so
man, he misses her like we all miss that tv show
where he first performed that love song ‘bout a year ago
well, if ya haven't heard it yet then this is how it goes…
like the buffalos do it by the wishing well
‘cause they ain't got time no money for a cheap motel, yeah
tell me what sweeter thing could happen to a boy an' a girl?
we gotta do it like mechanical wabbits from hell, yeah
It was the sweetest song playin' on the raid-eeh-oh
from the edge of alabama down to me-hee-ko
it was a number one hit but darlene didn't know
whom her fav'rite song was fo
but everytime she hears it, her heart, like a gong,
would tremble for the man for whom she longs
…for whom she longs….
and ‘en she starts to sing along…
we gotta do it for a reason, gotta do it for fun
we gotta sparkle like tequila in the hot…hot sun, yeah!
we gotta do it like sinatra used to do “my way”
an' in the background there's that beck dude singin' odelay
