Emily's goin' out tonight 
With a candle in her pocket and 
A lighter in her right hand. 
Does anybody know why she's gonna go? 
She's nearly out of sight, 
Emily's out tonight.

So familiar, how ladylike 
The old girl comes along. 
She's ninety something, 
Dressed up and wide awake, 
A little slow but going strong. 
She's paid off the overdraft for the tv 
She has bought in 84.
She's been paying all her lifetime, 
But now she's gonna pay no more.

Deep religious, she went to mess 
On every Sunday morning.
She's believing in God, but she don't like 
The priest he's new in town, and very boring. 
She's listened to his sermon well 
Though she's heard the same 
One hundred times before. 
She's heard them all her lifetime, 
But now she's gonna listen anymore. 

She's gonna do it today,
She's gonna make it today
She's gonna do it gonna do it gonna do it, 
Baby baby.

Emily's goin' out tonight 
With a candle in her pocket 
A lighter in her right hand. 
Does anybody know 
Why she's gonna go away?
She's gonna make it today. 

She's very friendly and open minded 
Always understanding. 
Bad behavior she doesn't like at all. 
She's very modest, she's never been demanding. 
She always followed every rule 
Though she didn't even know 
What they've been for, oh yeah.
She has followed all her lifetime 
But now she's gonna follow anymore. 

She's gonna do it today,
She's gonna make it today
She's gonna do it gonna do it gonna do it, 
Baby baby.

She's gonna make the world go round and round round round round round
Round and round round round round, 
Round and round round round round,
Round and round round round round.

She's gonna make it today,
She's gonna do it gonna do it gonna do it, 
Baby baby.

Emily 's goin' out tonight 
With a candle in her pocket and 
A lighter in her right hand. 
Does anybody know why she's gonna go away? 
Emily 's goin' out tonight 
With a candle in her pocket and 
A lighter in her right hand. 
Does anybody know why she's gonna go today, 
She's gonna go away,
She's gonna go today?
Emily 's goin' out tonight 
With a candle in her pocket and 
A lighter in her right hand. 
Does anybody know why she's gonna go?
She's nearly out of sight, 
Emily's out tonight.
