Worked at the bowling alley making extra funds

The girls they came and went literally tons.

Then one night I looked up as she glided cross the floor

Hurried over just in time to block her at the door.


Worked at the bowling alley making extra funds
The girls they came and went literally tons.
Then one night I looked up as she glided cross the floor
Hurried over just in time to block her at the door.

Said,  Hey cute chick, where you goin’ aren’t you gonna bowl?
I reached up, felt my cheek to see if she had bored a hole.
Y’all must be hard up to have to kidnap people at the doors.
Next thing you know they’ll have you wrestling folks to the floor.

I’m sorry, didn’t think, guess I’m getting sleepy and tired.
I hope you won’t mention this to the boss it might get me fired.
Naw, been watchin kinda close for someone I might want to meet.
You have some pretty good moves, especially with those spikes on your feet.

You weren’t lookin at spikes, when I turned round, better watch your step.
Next thing you know you’ll be on the floor hollerin’ for help
I sure do like that yellow dress, it sets off the pretty color of your hair
Sure does fit you nice, made you enter with quite a flare.

This color’s called strawberry blonde, glad you like it but it’s not mine, a wig
With that she wheeled round, headed for the door, playin’ hard to get in that rig
I yelled hey didn’t get your name and number for my brother when he comes
That was my excuse, but I’d use them myself or else be a chump

I finally did persuade her to go out on a dinner date with friends
Then felt embarrassed because every time we looked up we had a table full of grins
The minute the engine was off she headed for her door which soon was a run
I tried to catch up, find out if she enjoyed herself and had any fun

Well, here it is 50 years later, still trying to find out if she had fun on our first date
She finally told me she usually didn’t date old men, but would give me a pretty good rate
We’ve lived a great life and not one thing would I change
boy if she had on that wig, dress, those spikes she’d be completely out of my range.
