Reo Speedwagon – 157 Riverside Avenue lyrics

We flew into town on Sunday, had to find a place by Monday
Tried Bridgeport and Westport, 'til we found a place that we thought would do
157 Riverside Avenue.

Saugatuck River's flowin', Mother nature's colors were showin'
So cold, and rainy, we couldn't help feelin' blue
Not enough time, too many things to do. So we just sat back and played some.


We met a young girl on Main street, wanted to pass her by
She was lovely, we were horney, She said, "Can I make love to you."
I said 157 Riverside Avenue. Here's what she said:

Well ya see she talk like a guitar, that woman did, I never understood a word
She said, maybe that's why we got along so well. I don't know baby, come on baby.

It's over, Miss Lena, we're leaving. Such a pleasant stay, I must say.
So nice, so easy, we hate to say goodbye to you
At 157 Riverside Avenue.
