lyrics

You're awfully wild tonight
Drinking like hell will rise
Devil's before your eyes
He keeps on calling you back

And he looks like the bartender
Who knows you down to the letter
Stitched to your tongue and ever
Thirsting for more

To the barstools and neon signs
The patron who always smiles
Though he never will tell you why
All the better for that
To the gin sitting in his glass
And the sputtering way he laughs
When he puts down his drink to ask
Who will come share his bed

She's awfully kind tonight
Knows that this soul of mine
Needs just a little shine
And a break from the black
She's talking with younger men
And I can't compare to them
But right now I need a friend
Or a little bit more

To the barstools and neon signs
The waitress who always smiles
Though she never will tell me why
All the better for that
To the gin sitting in this glass
And the sad little way she laughs
When I put down this drink to ask
If she'll come share my bed

You're awfully wild tonight
Make your way home, get your head back on right
I need just a little shine
I'm a good man, not like these other guys
You're awfully wild
And I'm just a child
I need some shine
Darling, won't you be mine for the night?

To the barstools and neon signs
