GLORY DAYS

Live 26 Jul 2003 version


Come on Saturday night

Well I had a friend was a big baseball player back in high school
He could throw that speedball by you, make you look like a fool boy
Saw him the other night at this roadside bar, I was walking in, he was walking out
We went back inside, sat down, had a few drinks, all he kept talking about was

Glory days
Well they'll pass you by, glory days
In the wink of a young girl's eye, glory days
Glory days
Whoa!

There's a girl, she lives up the block, back in school she could turn all the boys' heads
Sometimes on a Friday I'll stop by and have a few drinks with her after she put her kids to bed
Her and her husband Bobby, well they split up, guess it's two years gone by now (alright)
We just sit around talking about the old times, she says when she feels like crying, she starts laughing thinking about

Glory days
Yeah they'll pass you by, glory days
In the wink of a young girl's eye, glory days
Glory days

(Whoa)

Think I'm going down to the well tonight, I'm gonna drink until I get my fill
I hope when I get old I don't sit around thinking about it, but I probably will
Sitting back trying to recapture a little of the glory of
Time slips away and leaves you with nothing mister but boring stories of

Glory days
They'll pass you by, glory days
In the wink of a young girl's eye, glory days
Glory days
They'll pass you by, glory days
In the wink of a young girl's eye, glory days
Glory days

Well aright! (Alright)
Oh yeah! (Oh yeah)
Alright! (Alright)
Oh yeah! (Oh yeah)
Alright! (Alright)
Come on now! (Come on baby)
Oh yeah! (Oh yeah)
Oh yeah! (Oh yeah)
Whoa! (Whoa)
Whoa! (Whoa)
Whoa! (Whoa)
Whoa! (Whoa)
Whoa! (Whoa)
Whoa! (Whoa)
Whoa! (Whoa)
Whoa! (Whoa)
Come on Steve! (Yeah)
We gotta keep rocking baby! (I'm with you baby)
Are you with me king? (I'm with you baby)
Is the band with me?
Are the people with me? (Yeah)
'Cause I think it's just about quitting time (No)
I recon it's just about time to get on that Jersey ???
And blow a hole to a ??? through the TV
Oh yeah Steve!
I'm talking ??? (Hey dude)
Oh yeah baby! Think it ???
Come on!
Gonna see you Sunday night (No)
I see the news Saturday night (No)
All I wanna know is, if it ain't quitting time Mr. and Mrs. New Jersey, yet
What time is? (Boss time)
What time? (Boss time)
What time? (Boss time)
What time? (Boss time)
One! Two! Three!
