Let`s go out on the town tonight 
My pockets are heavy with loot
And get drunk and blasted 
(And loud in your dress of blue)

I've been living from hand to mouth 
It must be three or four weeks 
And I can tell you one thing Jack
You listen when your stomach speaks

I feel good just like I knew that I would 
And all on account of that wine that I bought today
I`m smiling so sweet 
At every little girl that I meet
Some fools will try to tell you it`s a sin to feel this way

It feels so funny having all of this money 
I think I feel like dancing the night away
I think I feel like dancing the night away

I got me this long legged girl
To help me to spend my dough 
Her heart as big as your mama`s stove 
And her body like Brigitte Bardot

I`m all ready for some Rock and Roll
With the guitar turned up loud
And the fancy footwork
And the (drunk) down, drugged up crowd 

I feel good just like I knew that I would 
All on account of that wine that I bought today
I`m smiling so sweet 
At every little girl that I meet
Some fools will try to tell you it`s a sin to feel this way

It feels so funny having all of this money 
I think I feel like dancing the night away
I think I feel like dancing the night away
