Ray Lamontagne – Drive-In Movies lyrics

I spent all my childhood years
Wishin' that I looked like a movie star
Cigarette behind my ear
Leanin' up against a muscle car

Wanna know the things that I shouldn't know
I got smokes that I stole from the 7-L
Everybody's at the drive-in, I wanna go

I wanna be the guy who doesn't like to fight
But can kick your ass if you touch his girl
I wanna be the guy who breaks all the rules
But the cops let him off 'cause they think he's cool

Wanna know the things that I shouldn't know
I got smokes that I stole from the 7-L
Everybody's at the drive-in, I wanna go

Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Aaahhh

Grew up fast in a Nebraska town
Nothing goin' on and even less to do
Mom's at work and Dad's never around
So me and the guys we're skippin' school

Wanna know the things that I shouldn't know
I got smokes that I stole from the 7-L
Everybody's at the drive-in, I wanna go

Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Aaahhh

I wanna be Brando in the Wild One
I wanna be something to someone
'Cause nothing ever changes in this town
The same old crew hangin' around
Just waitin' for some shit to go down
But we love our Drive-in movies

Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Aaahhh

Now I'm grown, kids of my own
Never thought I could be a dad
Me and my girl, we're goin' strong
Still the best friend that I ever had

Now I know all the things that I didn't know
I got smokes, but I bought 'em now, I guess I'm old
Drive in's just an empty lot that no one mows

I miss those
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies

Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Aaahhh

Spent all my childhood years
Wishin' that I looked like a movie star
