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 it's 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' till after we've been there
'Cause it might make their poor heads worry
And worrying can cause gray hair
But 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 pretty's 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' till after we've been there
'Cause it might make their poor heads worry
And worrying can cause gray hair
But one thing just might lead to another
And if there's any trouble they'll blame it on me

You can't tell your pa and mama
Where we're goin' till after we've been there
'Cause it might make their poor heads worry
And worrying can cause gray hair
But one thing just might lead to another
And if there's any trouble, I know they'll blame it on me
Yes, they will, yes, I know
