Yes I do, I love ya
I swear on the stars above I do

I swear on the streetlight on the corner
Shoving back the shadows
One shadow cursing
Another shadow laughing
Underneath the streetlight
I don't know where they're coming from
I just see 'em passing
Underneath the streetlight

Yes I do, I love ya
I swear on the buildings above I do

I swear on a billion yellow and TV blue windows
Gayboys with their pants so tight
Out in the neon light
Underneath the street light
A m-m-madman madman
Kicking over garbage cans
Underneath the streetlight

Yes I do, I love ya
I swear on the blinkin' planes above I do

I swear on the truck at the stoplight
With his airbrakes moaning
All night the trucks roll
Up to the tunnel-toll
Underneath the streetlight
They come rollin', rollin'
Rollin' for a living
Underneath the streetlight

Yes I do, I love ya
I swear on the disco sparkle dark I do

I swear on the be-bop boys
Chasing the black bird
Rock 'n' roll broadcast
Movin' up now full blast
Underneath the streetlight
They come dancin', dancin'
Really rock 'n' rollin'
Underneath the streetlight

Yes I do, I love ya
I really love you
Yes I do, yes I do
I love ya
