Baby can't wait, baby gotta go
Got to do a number on the late, late show
Do a little song, do a little dance
Want some make the best of her big chance

Don't really matter
If she don't or if she do
She's tryin' to make the best of
The hometown blues

I got a friend, got a little girl
Said, she's the best in the whole wide world
Sounds so good, it sounds unreal
It might not last but it's no big deal

Don't really matter
If she don't or if she do
She's tryin' to make the best of
The hometown blues, ooh, ooh, ooh

Baby, save me, save me, save me
Your sweet smile
Honey, I really need for you
To help me kill a little bit o' time

All of the girl rules run with the crowd
They go wild when the lights go down
They got a little money, they live in a dream
They wanna be the queen of every little scene

Don't really matter
If they don't or if they do
Just tryin' to make the best of
The hometown blues, ooh, ooh

Baby, save me, save me, save me
Your sweet smile
Honey, I really need for you
To help me kill a little bit o' time

All of the girl rules run with the crowd
They go wild when the lights go down
They got a little money, they live in a dream
Wanna be the queen of every little scene

Don't really matter
If they don't or if they do
Just tryin' to make the best of
The hometown blues, ooh, ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
