I got something to say little girl
You might not like my style
We been hanging around this town
A little to long this time
Say you're gonna get your act together
Take it out on the road
If I don't get outta here pretty soon
My head's going sure explode
Sure I like country music
And I like mandolins
Right now need a telecaster
Turn it up on number 10

Lets go to Memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl

Need a little shot of that rhythm baby
Mixed up with country blues
Wanna trade in these cowboy boots
For some fine Italian shoes
Forget about the mousse and the hairspray darling
We don't need none of that
Just a little old dab'll do ya
Poke it underneath your hat
Until hell freeze over
Maybe you can wait that long
But I don't think Ronnie Milsap's ever gonna sing this song

Lets go to memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl

Maybe there's nothin' happenin' there
Maybe somethin' in the air, ohhh
Before our upper lips get stiff
Maybe we could use just one more hit, yeah

If we could just get off the beat little girl
Maybe we could find the groove
At least we can get ourselves a good meal
Down at the rendez-vous
Cause one more heartfelt steel guitar
Girl it's gonna do me in
You could hear the trumpet and saxophone
You know sounds sweet as sin
Well we get good and greasy
Baby we can come back home
Put the cowhorns back on the cadillac
And change the message on the cord-a-phone

Lets go to Memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl
Lets go to Memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl
Lets go to Memphis in the meantime baby
Lets go to Memphis in the meantime girl
