Single bars and single women With a single thought in mind Just to make it till the morning Looking for what they can find For a man they won't remember For a night they can't forget Do you come to this place often? May I light your cigarette? Drinkin' beer in Amarillo Passing time and swaping jokes Hoping for a new beginning But beginning to lose hope And you're waiting for that moment When a glance becomes a stare Mmm, what's that perfume that you're wearing? Haven't I met you somewhere?
Find a matchbook in the morning With a name and number scrawled When you phone, a woman answers And you wish you'd never called Oh, they're friendly when they meet you But they're strangers when they go Ahh, do you mind if I come join you? Would you like to dance one more?
And it's gettin' near to closing And the seconds pass like years Lots of friends to share the laughter Not a one to share the tears
Oh and you wish they'd change that juke box Cause you know every song it plays Can I drop you off at my place? Oh, what's the matter, are you gay? You gotta twenty in your pocket Got your toothbrush in your purse Life could get a whole lot better But it better not get worse
