I once knew a girl I can't remember her name but I remember her face 'cause her sister looked the same.
They both left school, but they couldn't find a job So they said farewell and stole a small town car.
As they were riding by the beach some summer night The radio shouted out one of those songs that might just change your life It went like this: "Checkin' in checkin' out Making love I like watching all your fireworks I like it when I light those stars in your eyes Just like fireworks in the sky" Yes it did...
Throwing some poems to the ports and docks They were sleeping outdoors pushing all their luck.
They sent me a letter full of pills and thrills Then they both got rich and moved to Hollywood Hills.
Yea they made lots of money playing folk guitar 'Cause everywhere the boys went crazy just to hear these words of art: "Checkin' in checkin' out Take it to the sky Making love I like watching all your fireworks I like it when I light those stars in your eyes Just like fireworks in the sky".
They're coming to get you They're coming to get you now Coming to get you now Watch the sky!
