Lyrics of

Josie

We're gonna break out the hats and hooters
When Josie comes home
We're gonna rev up the motor scooters
When Josie comes home to stay
We're gonna park in the street
Sleep on the beach and make it
Throw down the Jam till the girls say when
Lay down the law and break it, when Josie comes home

When Josie comes home, so good
Shes the pride of the neighborhood
She's the raw flame, the live wire
She prays like a Roman, with her eyes on fire

Jo would you love to scrapple
She'll never say no
Shine up the battle apple
We'll shake 'em all down tonight 
We're gonna mix in the street
Strike at the stroke of midnight
Dance on the bones 'till the girls say when
Pick up what's left by daylight
When Josie comes home

When Josie comes home, so bad
She's the best friend we never had
She's the raw flame, the live wire
She prays like a Roman with her eyes on fire

[solo]

[1st chorus]
