Standing in line
To see the show tonight 
And there's a light on
 Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there, waiting for
Dani the girl
Is singing songs to me
 Beneath the marquee, overload 

 Steak knife card shark 
Con job boot cut

Skin that flick 
She's such a little DJ 
Get there quick
By street but not the freeway 
Turn that trick 
To make a little leeway
Beat that nic
But not the way that we play

Dog town blood bath
Rib cage soft tail

 Standing in line
To see the show tonight 
And there's a light on
 Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there, waiting for

 Black jack dope dick
Pawn shop quick pick
Kiss that dyke
I know you want to hold one
Not on strike 
But I'm about to bowl one
Bite that mic
I know you never stole one
 Girls that like
A story, so I told one
Song bird, main line
Cash back, hard top

 Standing in line to
See the show tonight 
And there's a light on
 Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for
Dani the girl is
 Singing songs to me
 Beneath the marquee  Oversold 
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for

Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah, guess you never meant it
Ooh, ah

 Standing in line to
See the show tonight 
And there's a light on
 Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for
Dani the girl
Is singing songs to me
 Beneath the marquee 
Of her soul
By the way I tried to say
I know you
From before 

 Standing in line to
See the show tonight 
And there's a light on
 Heavy glow
By the way I tried to say
I'd be there waiting for
