By Tom Petty

Baby can't wait, baby gotta go
Gotta do a number on a late night show
Do a little song, do a little dance
Gonna make the best of her big chance

It don't really matter if she don't or if she do
Just tryin' to make the best of the hometown blues

I gotta friend, gotta little girl
Says she's the best in the whole wide world
Said it's so good, said it's unreal
Might not last, but it's no big deal

It don't really matter if she don't or if she do
Just tryin' to make the best of the hometown blues

Baby, save me, save me
Save me with your sweet smile
Honey I really need you
To help me kill a little bit of time

All of the girls run with a crowd
They go wild when the lights go down
They gotta little money, live in a dream
Wanna be the queen of their little scene

It don't really matter if she don't or if she do
