Well if you're lookin' for a good time
Look hard as you want but you ain't gonna find
The kinda good time you will
Come ev'ry Friday 'n' Saturday evening
At the Top Hat Bar and Grille

Well, at the Top Hat Bar and Grille
There is a waitress name of Lil
Well, she's a honky tonky
Little bit chunky divorcee
She wear them tight hippy hugger slacks
You can believe it when I tell you, Jack
That she's a dancin', prancin', hard romancin'
P-I-E-C-E
And she can do the boogie woogie
She can do the boogaloo
And she can do the hootchie cootchie
Oh, and she knows how to nasty, too

So if you're lookin' for a good time
Look hard as you want but you ain't gonna find
The kinda good time you will
Come ev'ry Friday 'n' Saturday evening
At the Top Hat Bar and Grille

Well, at the Top Hat Bar and Grille
They got this bouncer name of Gil
He is a honky tonky
Heavily funky ex-marine
He wear dem skintight body builder shirts
And Jack, he'll knock you out into the dirt
But if you got no money or you try to be funny
Then mother you gonna see
That man gonna do the boogie woogie
He gonna do the boogaloo
He gonna do the hootchie cootchie
And he'll be doin' all his dancin' on you

So if you're lookin' for a good time
Look hard as you want but you ain't gonna find
The kinda good time you will
Come ev'ry Friday 'n' Saturday evening
At the Top Hat Bar and Grille
Lookin' for a good time
Lookin' for a bad time

So if you're lookin' for a good time
Look hard as you want but you ain't gonna find
The kinda good time you will
Come ev'ry Friday 'n' Saturday evening
At the Top Hat Bar and Grille

    The meaning of the top hat bar and grill? Hmmm.. I would suppose i could say as it was written perhaps to convey to the listener a bit on the subject of life. I know i myself have been in hundreds of top hat bar and grills though i might not remember each and every one and what exactly transpired there...
