Cruisin’ The 50’s (Tonight)

Friday evening, the work week is done
friends gather round for some beer and some fun
stack the 45’s, the time warp’s begun
cruisin’ the 50’s tonight

Carl warns us not to step on his shoes
Eddie’s got a case of the summertime blues
well, I don’t know, but Bo Diddley do
and we’re cruisin the 50’s tonight

Peggy’s fever is making me sweat
Bobby’s splish splashin and gettin all wet
Patsy Cline singin I’ll take all I can get
cruisin the 50’s tonight

Maybeline drivin’ crazy in her Cadillac
ring of fire from the big man in black
grab a Blue Ribbon out of the sack
and we’re cruisin the 50’s tonight

Drive ins on Friday nights in souped up Chevrolets
bobby sox’s and soda shops, and I’m in love with Doris Day, Doris Day

Pat robs Penniman to pay Les Paul
while Chuck plays the riffs that started it all
what’d I say? Ray’s havin a ball
cruisin the 50’s tonight

The king is lonely at his hotel
jailhouse rock, get back in your cell
Johnny’s playing like ringin a bell
we’re cruisin the 50’s tonight

Drive-ins on Friday nights in rag-top Chevrolets
bobby sox’s and soda shops, and I’m in love with Doris Day, Doris Day

Love is real and not fade away
you think buddy’s gone? That’ll be the day
the girls crying when they hear Johnny Ray
cruisin the 50’s tonight

the phone is ringin, reality calls
neighbor says man it’s coming through the walls
that square’s just gonna have to deal with it all
cruisin the 50’s tonight
