The boys in the back room
Billy shooting pool
Trading dirty glances
With pretty boys playing cool

They're putting down their whiskey
Getting loaded tonight
It's gettin' kind of risky
They're lookin' to fight

If you want action
If you want a thrill
Then take it down to jimmy's bar and grill

Chorus:
And play dirty
And dirty games too
Play dirty
Like dirty boys do

Tattoo willie's happenin'
He really makes a scene
He's got anything you like
If you know what I mean

Troubles up when the heat comes down
Cause down at jimmy's
They don't mess around

Chorus

Come on, man, let's take this right outside
Come on, sucker, hit it

Solo

The place is gettin' restless
There's trouble in the air
All hell's about to break loose
The dirty punks just don't care

If you want action, if you want a thrill
Then take it down to jimmy's bar and grill

Chorus out
