Ali dances and the audience applauds
She said she'd meet me in the bar at the Plaza Hotel
Come out Virginia, don't let me wait
Baby all the lights are turned on you
Turn on all the Christmas lights 'cause baby's coming home tonight
It's time for me to be on my way I know
A picture postcard, a folded stub
Well, I've been watching you waltz all night, Diane
Little Geo was a friend of mine
Why can't I lay low? Why can't I say what I mean?
She stood on the tracks waving her arms
I played nights in the Spanish part of town
Some folks like to get away, take a holiday from the neighborhood
You have to learn to pace yourself
It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
I'm young enough to still see the passionate boy that I used to be
Don't get excited, don't say a word
They say that these are not the best of times
Saturday night and you're still hanging around
If you search for tenderness, it isn't hard to find
Well I'm [title] when it comes to loving you
Some people think that she's one of those mink-coated ladies
Oh, I didn't want to do it, but I got too lonely
[Title] never sang on stages
Don't go changing to try and please me
We walked on the beach beside that old hotel
In the beginning there was the cold and the night
[Title] that's what you heard about me
I've been living for the moment, but I just can't have my way
She cuts you once, she cuts you twice, but still you believe
Anthony works in the grocery store
She waits for me at night
Viktor was born in the spring of '44
[Title] we were always friends
Got a call from an old friend we used to be real close
Well we all have a face that we hide away forever
Call me a joker, call me a fool
We met as soul mates on Parris Island
I am [title] and I know just where I stand
[Title] all come from somewhere
This back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin' two more hours to go
Slow down you crazy child, you're so ambitious for a juvenile
There you go, slipping away into a [title]
From my room, I see the blue Pacific Ocean
Today I'm living like a rich man's son
Of all the people in the world that I know
You see her sitting with her coffee and her paper
There's a lot tension in this town I know it's building up inside of me
Safe at harbor, everything is easy
[Title]. Wasn't this supposed to be a musical?
