Gay bar at closing time
The music stops, up come the lights
The cloak of darkness lifts it's veil
Gathering for a sidewalk sale

Back and forth through the smoky space
Making circles around the place
Desperation, it's getting late
Last chance is the sidewalk sale

Don't want to go home alone
But how low will you go?
The cream is gone, the dregs prevail
Tough choices at the sidewalk sale

That guy's really not that bad
But if it was earlier, it'd be kinda sad
Make your move, don't delay
Gotta be quick at the sidewalk sale

That guy's giving you a sexy look
Be better off curled up with a book
He's gettin' fresh, but looking stale
Slim pickings at the sidewalk sale

Don't want to go home alone
But how low will you go?
Self-respect is about to fail
Feeling pathetic at the sidewalk sale

Looking for someone you'll never forget
More likely find someone you'll regret
Think it's time to hit the trail
Gonna pass on the sidewalk sale
