Big plans, big time, everything
Downtown pawn shop
Bought us a ring
Heading for the top-
Top of the pops

CHORUS
Top, top, top of the pops-
Hey! Hey!

Two time, two-ton hangover king
The bride wore black
We were ready to swing
Too far gone to stop-top of the pops

CHORUS

You told me baby you had time to kill
But then you tossed me out like an overdue bill
You left in a hurry with a guy from the band
On a one way ride to the promised land
Top of the pops

You told me baby you were gone for good
But here you are
Right back in the old
Neighborhood
You stood in a lobby with a ticket in hand
For a one-way ride to the promised land
Top of the pops

Second-hand wedding band, throw it away
Big plans, big time, got in the way
Now we're on the top
Top of the pops

CHORUS
