I hear tell there's big fun tonight
On the corner of Main and Dog-Meat-Bite
Friday midnights would not be right
Without Redd's hot party and a nasty fight

But I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do
I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do

You can't renege cause its goin' be live
Fine women, lots of liquor and stuff for your mind
Now where we're goin' they don't like your kind
But they'll cool when you tell them
You're a friend of mine

'Cause I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do
I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do

You can't tell your pa and mama
Where we're goin' til after we've been there
'Cause that might make their poor heads worry
And worrying can cause grey hair
And one thing just might lead to another
And if there's any trouble they'll blame it on me

I think we just might have two to go
The prettys lookin' over here
From the middle of the floor
We'll make a b-line to Hotel La Sin
Where you'll do the talkin to get us in

And I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do

We shoulda been long gone 'cause this place is hot
'Cause in the corner there are two brothers who are undercover cops
If they stop us for questioning mum is the word
'Cause a question not answered is a answer not heard

And I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do
I'll be in your corner
I'll be in your corner, if they do

You can't tell your pa and mama
Where we're goin' til after we've been there
'Cause that might make their poor heads worry

And worrying can cause grey hair
And one thing just might lead to another
And if there's any trouble they'll blame it on me
