Saturday night and everybody's out boozin'
I get in my car and I go out cruisin'
Lookin' for a party, a chick or some dope
If it gets after midnight I don't give up hope

With a flash lookin' woman, I ain't to select
I'll roll on down and take a look at the rest
Ladies or liqueur I'll take second best

I'm driving'
You're drinkin'
I'm thinkin'
You're fine
And you're mine

Round about four I'll be right on top
A bit of luck with the pick of the crop
Rockin' and rollin' till the morning sun
Lights up my wagon then I'm on the run
