Out on the prowl in the Summer time
Out on the prowl eyes on the dance floor
Fire her a wink, you’ve got time to think
Buy her a drink you’ll get what you wish for

Then you circle round and survey like a satellite
Then you pick a victim and feast like a parasite
People say it’s sick you don’t care it’s just modern life
Your chat up line is ‘You’re coming home with me’

You don’t even know
That tonight you’re coming home with me

...And you’ll see who she’s been with and when she’s been dancing
Her company says it’s time to leave
You move in with ease – professional sleaze.


from Last Chance To Dance, released May 13, 2012
Recorded, Mixed & Mastered by Rocky at Start Together Studios

Additional Trombone by James Doherty (The Dead Presidents)
