Couldn't find a girl
Couldn't start a fight
Wound up at the drive-in
On a Saturday night
Not enough money for the boys to get drunk
Had to flip a coin
To see who'd hide in the trunk
Spend all week listening to the teacher
Wind up at a sex romp double feature
Don't seem fair, don't seem right
Stuck at the drive-in on a Saturday night
Well me and the boys gonna try our hand
Picking up girls at the concession stand
Hey there pretty baby, by the popcorn stand
You're prettier than the actress on the 50 foot screen
Me and the boys traveled far
Some "OFF" and blankets back at the car
Your mommy ain't here
So it's all right
Stuck at the drive-in on a Saturday night!
Well me and the boys done all right so far
Some cuties and french fries back at the car
The lights went off and the movie came on
It was "The Naked Nurses that Ate Saigon"
Sherri called it dirty
Mary called it porn
But when it broke in the middle,
They honked the horn
During intermission, we turned it down low,
And danced on the hood to the radio
Second feature started
We were long gone
Took 'em home, said, "good-night
Meet you at the drive-in next Saturday night"
