Jack & Diane


Little ditty about Jack and Diane
Two American kids growin' up in the heartland
Jackie gonna be a football star
Diane debutante backseat of Jackie's car

Suckin' on chili dogs outside the tastee freeze
Diane's sittin' on Jackie's lap
He's got his hand between her knees
Jackie say, "Hey Diane let's run off
Behind a shady tree
Dribble off those Bobby Brooks
Let me do what I please."
And Jackie say

Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin is gone
Oh yeay say life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin is gone, they walk on

Jackie sits back reflects his thoughts for the moment
Scratches his head and does his best James Dean.
Well you know Diane, we oughta run off to the city
Diane says "Baby, you ain't missin' nuth-in"
Jackie say-a

Chorus

Gonna let it rock
Let it roll
Let the Bible Belt come and
Save my soul
Hold on to sixteen as long as you can
Changes come around real soon
Make us women and men

Little ditty about Jack and Diane
Two American kids done the best they can


Wild Night (Original by Van Morrison)


As you brush your shoes and stand before your mirror
and you comb your hair and grab your coat and hat
and you walk the streets trying to remember
all those nights breeze through your mind

And everything looks so complete
when your're walking out on the street
and the wind catches your feet
and sends you flying, crying
ooh, oooh-weh the wild night is calling

All the girls walk by dressed up for each other
and the boys do the boogiewoogie on the corner of the street
and the people passing by just stare with the wild wonder
and the inside jukebox roars like thunder

And everything ...
the wild night is calling

Come on out and dance
come on out and make romance
come on out and dance
come on out and make romance

And everything....
the wild night ist calling
