Make me a deal and make it straight
All signed and sealed, I'll take it

To Robert E. Lee, I'll show it
I hope and pray he don't blow it, 'cause

We've been around a long time
Just tryin' to, tryin' to, tryin' to
Make the big time


Take me on a roller coaster
Take me for an airplane ride
Take me for a six day wonder, but don't you
Don't you throw my pride aside, besides


What's real and make believe
Baby Jane's in Acapulco
We are flyin' down to Rio

Throw me a line, I'm sinking fast
Clutching at straws, can't make it
Havana sound were trying
Hard edge the hipster jiving


Last picture shows down the drive-in
You're so sheer, you're so chic
Teenage rebel of the week


Flavors of the mountain streamline
Midnight blue, casino floors
Dance the Cha-cha through till sunrise
Opens up exclusive doors, oh wow!

Just like flamingos look the same
So me and you, just we two
Got to search for something new

Far beyond the pale horizon
Some place near the desert strand
Where my Studebaker takes me
That's where I'll make my stand, but wait

Can't you see that Holzer mane?
What's her name, Virginia Plain
