Seth Shapiro got his law degree
He moved to Brooklyn from Schenectady, '93
Got some clients in the food industry
He says it?s not the money, it?s the recipes
He calls his mom, says he?s doing fine
She?s got somebody on the other line
Puts Coldplay on, pours a glass of wine
Curls up with a book about organized crime
When it?s late, and it?s hot
And a date with the Late Show?s all that you?ve got
Don?t give out, don?t give up
One of these nights you might find someone to love
Beth McKenzie got the job of her dreams
Retouching photos for a magazine aimed at teens
It?s Thursday night she should be out on the scene
But she?s sitting at home watching "The King of Queens"
There?s something wrong that she can?t describe
She takes the contacts out of her eyes
Sets the alarm for 6:45
So she can get a little exercise
When it?s late, and it?s hot
And an hour in the shower is the best that you've got
Don?t give out, don?t give up
One of these nights you might find someone to love
And you?re not the only one who?s lonely
Seth Shapiro is trying in vain
To hail a taxi in the morning in the pouring rain
Beth McKenzie sees one just up ahead
She cuts in front of him and leaves him for dead
