lyrics

I had a friend who looked pretty good sitting there behind the plate glass
I told him I would do what I can but second chances don’t come easy for a man
Listening to the band was never enough you had to stand on your hands and dance all around
Peak up the skirts at the tables at the side and wave your fists like you were in a fight
The night was not complete until you got someone to leave
And you got all the drunks to laugh at you and you laughed at them too
And you smiled at the end of the night like all along you knew
Just one more try
That’s all you need
One more smoke and a got with us
And we would have to set you up
With a gold key to the city
You used to take your shots of the belly of a model
You licked your lips and you licked hers too
Until you took a shot in the ribs from an unloaded pistol
That belonged to this boyfriend that she knew
You pulled out your own and shot him dead
As lay curled up in a pool of blood
We all B-lined straight for the door so you helped yourself to a shot and you had one more
Then the good cops showed up in a car so shiny and they busted you on the barstool
And you got pissy when you realized that your going to jail for the rest of your life
I had a friend who looked pretty good
Sitting with his legs crossed on the dancefloor
Blowing smoke rings as fast as he can
And getting F***** up and yelling at the band
Just one more try
That’s all you need
One more smoke and a got with us
And we would have to set you up
With a gold key to the city
