All songs by Tony Day & Todd Elsliger


 

Dance Dance Dance  

 

Wop bop bop, bop bop badada x 4

Dance, dance, dance as fast as you can

Move, move, move it's time to grove

Scream, scream, scream say it with me

Put another record in the record machine

 

It's Friday night I just got paid

I wanna take my girl on a date

To a rockin' room where the music booms

Dj's play my favourite tunes

Time is right to celebrate

Summer's here I'm feeling great

Girls dressing up and looking fine

Party like they did back in good old times

 

Dance, dance, dance as fast as you can

Move, move, move it's time to grove

Scream, scream, scream say it with me

Put another record in the record machine

 

Jack and Jill just stumbled in

Mary and Lou were at it again

Romeo with his Juliet

Were dancing in the corner with no regret

Barbra Ann and Susie Q

Sweet little Sheila knew what to do

Take my hand it's time to move

Dance, Dance, Dance while were in the grove

Wop bop bop, bop bop badada x 4

 

It's Friday night I just got laid

I woke up drunk on Saturday

In the clothes I wore last night

Bloody nose I got in a fight

 

CHORUS OUT… Dance, dance, dance…wop bop bop…


 

Little Sue

 

Still feels like it was yesterday

That girl took my breath away

Now I see I'm a fool

I had a girl named little Sue  ohh

 

Little Sue, she was my everything

Little Sue, she wore my diamond ring

Little Sue, she had the prettiest of eyes

Little Sue give love another try ohh

 

I met a girl from across the town

Prettiest girl that I ever found

We fell in love, rumors were true

I had a girl named little Sue  ohh

 

Little Sue, she was my everything

Little Sue, she wore my diamond ring

Little Sue, she had the prettiest of eyes

Little Sue give love another try ohh

 

When we held hands I was 10 feet tall

And when we danced they would clear the floor

When we kissed it was sweet

Now I got the better taste of defeat ohh

 

Little Sue, she was my everything

Little Sue, she wore my diamond ring

Little Sue, she had the prettiest of eyes

Little Sue give love another try ohh

 

I've been a fool dreamin about her

Running all over town, thinking of her

I can't believe what a fool I've been

I got a broken heart and a diamond ring ohh

 

Her mom and dad disapproved of me

The motorcycle and no school degree

I found a girl on my side of town

Made a mistake that I"m paying for now ohh

 

Little Sue, she was my everything

Little Sue, she wore my diamond ring

Little Sue, she had the prettiest of eyes

Little Sue give love another try ohh


 

Lucky Charm

 

Have you ever made a wish on a shooting star

Lifted your feet over train tracks while driving your car

There’s one more thing you’ve gotta do

I’m a lucky charm that’s tried and true

Get close enough baby, it will rub off on you

 

Just the other day I ran through a red light

The cop who pulled me over said she’d let it slide

It could have been her shift was through

I’m a lucky charm that’s tried and true

Get close enough baby, it will rub off on you

Get close enough baby, you could be lucky too

 

My mother don’t believe in superstitious tricks

but she was using my birthday for her lottery picks

Now she lives in Malibu,

I’m a lucky charm that’s tried and true

Get close enough baby, it will rub off on you

Get close enough baby, you could be lucky too

 

I find a lucky penny, every time I look down

I get the closest parking space, without driving around oh

 

You can cross your pretty fingers, hoping it all works out

or knock on wooden tables, whenever you’re in doubt

Don’t bother hanging that horseshoe

I’m a lucky charm that’s tried and true

Get close enough baby, it will rub off on you

Get close enough baby, you could be lucky too.


 

Drive

 

Come with me to a drive in movie

There’s a double James Dean bill playing now

This Cadillac roof comes down

Slide closer baby, these old seats were built for making out

 

Custom paint job, white wall tires

Chrome that sparkles under street lights at night             

These are my fuzzy dice

 Slide closer baby, pedal to the metal hold on to something tight

 

Cruising in a car with style, music on the am dial

Heading to lookout point, after we hit the burger joint

 

Won’t back down from, any challenge

I will leave you, far behind when I drop the clutch

Get ready to eat my dust

Slide outta here baby,

meet you at the finish line don’t make such a fuss

 

Busted fender, tail pipe dragging

Broken mirrors, headlights cracked and hanging out

The engine shouldn’t make that sound

Slide closer baby, pick me up at seven I need a ride downtown


 

Love Is In Dreams

 

If Love is in dreams, then dreamin’s where I wanna be

Holding you tight, all through the night

You’ll be my girl, and your love will be all mine, mine, mine , mine, mine

you’ll be all mine, mine, mine, mine, mine     

 

If I am asleep, then please don’t ever wake me up

When daylight breaks, then my heart aches

You’ll be my girl, and your love will be all mine, mine, mine, mine, mine    

you’ll be all mine, mine, mine, mine, mine 

 

She doesn’t care I play guitar

She likes old movies and classic cars

Record collections that rival ours, are nowhere there to be found

 

If love is in dreams, when my day of work is done

You’ll wait for me, we’ll drive towards the setting sun

You’ll be my girl, and your love will be all mine, mine, mine, mine, mine

you’ll be all mine, mine, mine, mine, mine 

 

She doesn’t care I play guitar

She likes old movies and classic cars

Record collections that rival ours, are nowhere there to be found


 

More Than Friends

 

We should’ve stayed just friends, beginning of the end

a rebound from the girl I adored

Your hair is just as long, but the colour is all wrong

personality that I just ignored

Many weeks go by, I can see it in your eyes

brace myself it’s happening again

When it comes to loving me, it ain’t too hard to see

the reason that we should’ve stayed friends

 

We should’ve took our time, before we crossed the line

I can’t always be in control

I’m usually not so fast, sometimes I even last

the alcohol must have played a role

In the morning you’ll regret, try not to look upset

if it makes you feel better pretend

That we didn’t have a fling, don’t remember anything

and we should never be more than friends

 

Is there somebody out there for me?

Don’t wanna be your friend in need

I’m ready for romance, somebody to hold hands and kiss

So here goes another big hit and miss

 

We should’ve stayed just friends, the day that you moved in

could not have been a bigger mistake

The hours that you keep, the greasy food you eat

I haven’t seen my bathroom in weeks

Your bills are never paid, my stuff is out of place

we haven’t made love since back when

the idea crossed our minds, that we would do just fine

pretending we could be more than friends


        

 

STEPHANIE

 

Holding hands in high school

Kissing on the dance floor

Long walks through the city, like lovers do

 

Stephanie it’s you, I’ve known all along 

would make my dreams come true, I wrote you this song

Whenever you feel blue, don’t go it alone

 

Weekends at the cottage

We wish upon the stars

Talking until sunrise, like lovers do

 

Stephanie it’s you, I’ve known all along

would make my dreams come true, I wrote you this song

Whenever you feel blue, don’t go it alone

         

Seventeen years ago,  my crush on you began

I’m trying not to let go,  but all dreams must come to an end

 

Poems that you read me

The records that I played

Sharing all our secrets, like lovers do                        

 

Stephanie it’s you, I’ve known all along

would break my heart in two, I wrote you this song

Whenever you feel blue, don’t go it alone


 

First Date

 

You’re even prettier in person than you are online

I’m underdressed, and I wasn’t here on time

You order a drink

and I’ll take the same

just one sip, she can’t wait to split

and I’ve blown my chance again

 

I left a message on your phone the very next day

I’m never certain how long I’m supposed to wait

just to be sure

you don’t think I wasn’t impressed

I texted you anther message too

sent a letter to your address


 

The Rock and Roll

 

Baby you can dance, in your under pants

High heeled boots, alligator shoes

Loosen up your tie, button down your fly

Blue jean baby, tassels on the side

Leather jacket on, tattoo of your mom

Thick rim glasses, won’t go out of fashion

Jewellery galore, dressing like a whore

Nobody gets turned away at the door…

 

Of the rock n’ roll, oh baby at the rock n’ roll

Oh honey let’s rock n’ roll, we’ll dance to the music and loose control!

 

High as a kite, sober and up tight

Straight A grades, unrepentant ways

Working for the man, haven’t got a plan

Living in your car, living off the land

Married in the nude, always been a prude

Mayor of a town, dumbest guy around

Captain of the team, woman in my dream

Nobody gets turned away from the scene…

 

CHORUS

 

California blond, pink bikini on

Raven haired beauty, with a lot of booty

Country girl hick, motorcycle chick

Inner city woman, it’s so hard to pick

Cheerleading squad, street walking broad

Older or young, piercing in her tongue

Skin as dark as night, or whiter than a dove

Nobody gets turned away from my love..

 

At the rock and roll, oh baby it’s the rock n’ roll, oh honey let’s rock and roll, oh baby at the rock and roll…


 

Roofing

 

It's 5 am, before the sun

A roofer's day starts at the break of dawn

Loading up the ladders while the coffee's on

 

Boost the rolls and the shingles too

The water cooler and the scraping tools

Set up the jacks and planks while the roof is cool

 

An angry neighbor pulls back curtains

The birds are singing songs

The sound of hammers interrupt

whatever's going on

 

I'm a roofer on the job

and the roof is heating up

 

I'm a working man, with tar stained pants

You'd know me by the callus on my hands

The sunburn on my neck is part of who I am

 

Hanging from, the rope I trust

with my life to hold me up

They pay us by the square on a 40 foot drop

 

We stop for lunch and find some shade on

solid ground again

Somebody rolls a joint to share with

a few of his only friends

 

I'm a roofer on the job

and the roof is heating up

 

I could have worn a shirt and tie

and sat behind a desk but that's no life

if you're not afraid of heights

 

The sunsets are, a thing to see

The smell of blossoms on the evening breeze

The view goes on forever way above the trees

 

The beer is colder when you're thirsty

the money ain't too bad

You've got a family at home waiting

I've got a quiet bachelor pad             

I'm a roofer on the job, and the roof is heating up 


 

Canada’s Wonderland

 

Everybody’s got the day off and traffic’s

backed up for miles to get in, the amusement park is where I live      

It’s where I live

 

Rollercoaster rides are the best when you’re as

high as I am all the time, looking funny feeling fine

Feeling fine

 

Canada’s Wonderland, I am your biggest fan

summer wouldn’t be the same without you

 

I’m a force you gotta reckon with in a game of skill

I can win the big prize, each time that I step to the line

To the line

 

Giant panda bears my collection is insane

shooting hoops throwing darts , I’ll kick your ass at bumper cars

Knocking down jars

 

Canada’s Wonderland, I am your biggest fan

summer wouldn’t be the same without you

 

Meet you at the water park, fireworks are after dark

summer doesn’t really start without you

 

Funnel cakes are messy I love the cotton candy

try it deep fried it could only come from one place

Stuffing your face

 

Last day of the season the winter’s rolling in

I’ve been here all day long, how am I gonna get my fix

Picking up chicks
