I was out cruisin', gettin' late and I was losin'
When I saw you walkin' my way
So nonchalant, I bet you get what you want
But so do I and I ain't losin' today
Well your hips were swingin' and your jeans were clingin'
You were driving me out of my mind
On a hot afternoon when there's nothin' to do
You're not the sort of thing a fellow should find
So I pulled on over, tossed your hair off your shoulder
As you turned and you looked my way
Oh you would have died or you'd have skinned me alive
If I'd have said what I wanted to say
So bein' polite said what you doin' tonight
You said it just so happens I'm free
You got all the right curves and all the right words
And that's alright by me
Oh Carol you got me eatin' my heart away, You got me countin' my nights and days
Oh I'm floatin' on the milky way-ay-ay-ay, Oh Carol, nobody's done it before
Oh baby you've opened the door, Oh Carol you can do it some more
Well if you're ready for this when we started to kiss
She said hold on a minute or two
Well naturally I knew it couldn't be me
I said baby what's troublin' you
She said I'm not sixteen if you know what I mean
So we sat and we talked for a while
But when we finally kissed you know she didn't resist
And I must say she did it with style
Oh Carol you got me eating my heart away, You got me countin' my nights and days
Oh I'm floatin' on the milky way-ay-ay-ay, Oh Carol, nobody's done it before
Oh baby you've opened the door, Oh Carol you can do it some more - alright
Well I was out cruisin', gettin' late and I was losin'
When I saw you walking my way
So nonchalant, I bet you get what you want
But so do I and I ain't losin' today
Oh Carol you got me eatin' my heart away, You got me countin' my nights and days
Oh I'm floatin' on the milky way-ay-ay-ay, Oh Carol, nobody's done it before
Oh baby you've opened the door, Oh Carol you can do it some more
Oh Carol you got me eatin' my heart away, You got me countin' my nights and days

    A guy is out cruising, looking to pick up a woman, so far without any luck when he sees a beautiful girl. He stops his car and chats with her and she agrees to go out with him later that evening. They start to kiss and she pulls back telling him she is under-age. Undeterred by this fact it isn't long before they are kissing again. Essentially a song about an older guy picking up some jail-bait.

    A young man with nothing to do and the whole day to do it in, sees a young woman who is equally idle. They tease and insult each other for the rest of the afternoon, then each goes home, satisfied, to tea, believing that they have scored points off the other
