(Jim Collins/Dean Dillon)

He was walkin' in the parkin' lot,
When she finally caught up with him.
Said: "Hey, boy, you forgot your keys.
"Is that your car?" She ran her fingers 'cross the hood,
An' told him: "I've never been in one of these."
He said: "Hop in an' I'll take you for a ride,
"Around the block. If you got the time."
She said, as she took her apron off:
"I must be out of my mind."

He pushed a button an' the ragtop came down.
Pushed another an' the music came on.
Pushed it to the floor an' off they went.
She asked his name: he told her.
He asked her name: she told him.
Said: "You wanna head back?" She said: "Not yet.
"It feels good to have the sun on my face
"An' the wind blowin' through my hair.
He said: "Where to next?"
An' she said: "I don't care."

"I've never been anywhere, I've never done anything.
"'Cept wait on tables in that bar: small talk an' small change.
"I've never loved anyone, I've never had someone who care.
"Boy, until you came along: I've never been anywhere."

They drove around for what seemed for hours.
In the sky the sun was settin'.
Said: "Where do you live? I'll drive you home."
He walked her up to the front porch screen door.
On her lips, she felt his kisses.
He said: "Goodbye." She said: "So long."
Well, he got in his car an' drove away,
But then he stopped an' threw it in reverse
An' she came runnin' off that front proch,
An' he put his arms 'round her.

"I've never been anywhere, I've never done anything.
"But work in some dead-end job, chasin' after dead-end dreams.
"But, girl, you brought my life to life, your smile is like a breath of air.
"Yeah, until you came along: I've never been anywhere.
"I've never been anywhere."

He was walkin' in the parkin' lot,
When she finally caught up with him.
Said: "Hey, boy, you forgot your keys."
