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

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

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

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

Baby, save me, save me, save me
With your sweet smile
Honey, I really need your love
To help me kill a little bit of time

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

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