In the Basement

Ohh, now tell me where can you party, child, all night long?
In the basement, down in the basement, yeah.
Oh where can you go when your money gets low?
In the basement, whoa down in the basement
And if a storm is taking place, you can jam and still be safe
In the basement, down in the basement, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Where can you dance to any music you choose?
In the basement, whoa down in the basement
Oh, you got the comforts of home, a nightclub too.
In the basement, whoa down in the basement.
Theres no cover charge or fee and the food and drinks are free,
In the basement, down in the basement

Come on child, you can do it, you can do it, yeah

Guitar lead

In the basement, in the basement, in the basement

(You tell em)
Where they dont, where they dont check you age at the door,
In the basement, whoa down in the basement
Barracuda and? til your feet get sore
In the basement, whoa down in the basement
Do any dance you want to do, theres no one under you
In the basement, I know it, you tell em oh-h-h-h I wanna go

In the basement, thats where its at (4x)
