Yeah you believe youre the king of the jungle
You got the tshirt do you know how the song goes
Youre looking good but the fact is your lazy
But people love you cos youre funny and crazy
7/11 buy a six pack of beer
If theres a party youre the last one to leave it
Its not too late we can stop all the dreaming
Get out this town, look around we don’t need it
Hell and heaven they can wait for you
So go and do all the things that you wanna do
(we don’t belong anywhere)
So set me free c’est la vie
I said come on baby, baby take a chance on me
I said said shame on me cos I didn’t see that you were looking at me by baby the Ferris wheel
I know youre cool cos but you think that youre chocolate
Get off my nerves cos I still got a soft spot
You look at me and think I got all the answers
Maybe I do but Im scared taking chances
Floating our bottle but we aint sailing nowhere
Rip out the car get the wing into our hair
Get off the train in the rain at the station
Knock back the drink cos we think the boat’s sinking
Hell and heaven they can wait for you
So go and do all the things that you wanna do
(we don’t belong anywhere)
So set me free c’est la vie
I said come on baby, baby take a dance on me
I said said shame on me cos I didn’t see that you were looking at me by baby the Ferris wheel
I said stand by me, stick around with me
Cos it’s a long walk back to where we just been
I said hey there baby ???? with me
I just wish I never found out but hey c’est la vie
I said hearing our song on the radio
And we’re singing out long all the words that we know
???????
I said yeh yeh yeh come along with me
And you think all the things that you wanna see
I said come on pretty baby take my hand
Im gonna show you all night, yes I am WOOO
Such is life in the rear view mirror
The open road up ahead is the future
Time came around and wrecked our place
But when I look back now I got a smile on my face
Come on baby take a chance with me
Stick around on the town if you wanna see
We don’t belong anywhere is what she said to me
So come on take a dance and spin around with me
She said now now baby set me free c’est la vie
I said Stand by me and stick around with me
and when the street light falls you can buy my beer
cos when the morning light comes I’ll be gone c’est la vie

Sure of most of it, bar a couple of lines that make no sense. Knackered by the middle eight

I can't keep listening to it with the Mrs here because she'll think I'm weird. But I'll try and help with the lyrics when I get chance,

I think it might be "Rip out the cork" in the second verse - ties in with the bottle motif.

In the middle eight, is it something about long tall Sally and Peggy Sue? Think after that it might be "Shake you all night",

You look at me and think I got all the answers
Maybe I do but I’m scared taking chances
Boat in a bottle but we ain’t sailing nowhere
Rip out the cork get the wind into our hair

I said hey there baby, so you banking on me?
I just wish I never found out but hey c’est la vie
I said they’re playing our song on the radio
And we’re singing out loud all the words that we know
And it’s a long tongue Sally placing on Peggy Sue
Is it about me and you because it’s about time that we grew
I said yeah yeah yeah come along with me
And you think all the things that you wanna see
I said come on pretty baby take my hand
I’m gonna shake you all night, baby yes I am WOOO
Such is life in the rear view mirror

And when the street lights fall you can buy my beer
‘Cause when the morning light comes I’ll be gone c’est la vie
(We don’t belong anywhere)

Any improvements on this? Happy

I think it is ''a long Tall Sally pissing off Peggy Sue"

as in the songs; Peggy Sue - Buddy Holly and Long Tall Sally - Little Richard.
