Lyrics

I got my girl beside me, I got my ragtop down
We’re goin’ to the all-night Drive-In Movie on the other side of town
The radio’s playin’ all our favorite songs
I got my arm around her, gonna keep it there all night long

The boss said, “Leave early, it’s Saturday night.”
He knew what was on my mind, he could see it in my eyes
“Go get your girl,” he said, “And put your ragtop down
Take her to the all-night Drive-In Movie on the other side of town.”

So I got my girl beside me, I got my ragtop down
Were goin’ to the all-night Drive-In Movie on the other side of town
The radio’s playin’ all our favorite songs
I got my arm around her while we just cruise along

The second show starts at ten, we’ll be there on time
If we don’t make it, won’t be for a lack of tryin’
We just might stop for a kiss or two somewhere along the way
Lord only knows what could happen next, might make us a little late

Well, I got my girl beside me and I got my ragtop down
We took a little detour on our side of town
The radio kept playin’ all our favorite songs
We were parked way down Lover’s Lane, could of stayed there all night long

Well we made it to the last show, half-past three
The Drive-In Movie attendant just smiled when he looked at me
“I see you’ve had a little kiss,” he said, “Maybe more than two
Well I was young once myself and I know what that can do.”

Well I got my girl beside me and I got my ragtop down
We’re at the all-night Drive-In Movie now on the other side of town
The picture’s on the big screen, the speaker’s in my car
She’s got her arms around me and I’m still seein’ stars
