Well the couple in the corner have been going at it all night long.
The man in the back is putting bets out over the phone.
And I ain't got nowhere to be. Ain't nobody waiting at home for me,
and there's nothing lonelier than midnight at the movies, again.

There's a girl named Martha who meets me here on Saturday nights.
She never says too much, she just sits down beside me and puts her hand in mine.
She's got a gentle way that keeps me from feeling so alone.
She always shows up late and leaves before the credits roll.
And I never watch her leave. I just close my eyes and pretend I'm asleep until the second feature begins. Midnight at the movies, again.

So it's half-price, double feature. Two and quarter after seven o:clock.
And there's no smoking, no drinking. Get your candies and your red-hots. I said, get your candies and your red-hots.

So shut out the lights and tell those fools down front to take a seat.
And if you see my Martha, tell her I'm in the corner, and just wake me if I'm asleep.
