Everybody’s got their dates.
He and she are really looking great.
They’re beautiful and they are holding hands.
Don’t they look happy today?

She’s his girl and he’s her beau.
They’ll show each other off at the show.
So well dressed, everybody’s impressed –
there’ll be someone for me too, I hope.

Everybody’s got their dates.
And they’ll go home before it gets late.
No one wants to talk to some ugly old rock –
I hope we’ll find a place to stay.

We came all the way
from Rock City.
It’s a million miles South
of the Big Easy.
Sure we get to see
some new cities,
but the life of a touring band
is never easy.
We meet a lot of people
and they are pretty,
but what good are they
if I can’t take them with me?
I fall in love each day
with someone new.
I wish that I could stay
and be with you!

Everybody’s got their bands.
Everybody’s got their plans.
I wish I could stay, but I’ve got a show to play.
Leaving always makes me sad.
