Drive-in Movies

I spent all my childhood years wishin' that I looked like a movie star
A cigarette behind my ear, leanin' up against a muscle car

Wanna know the things that I shouldn't know
I got smokes that I stole from the Seven-L
Everybody's at the drive-in, I wanna go

I wanna be the guy who doesn't like to fight,
But who could kick your ass if you touch his girl
I wanna be the guy who breaks all the rules,
But the cops let him off cause they think he's cool

Wanna know the things that I shouldn't know
I got smokes that I stole from the Seven-L
Everybody's at the drive-in, I wanna go

Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies

Grew up fast in that Nebraska town, nothin' goin' on and even less to do
Mom's at work, and dad's never around, so me and the guys were skippin' school

Wanna know the things that I shouldn't know
I got smokes that we stole from the Seven-L
Everybody's at the drive-in, I wanna go

Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies

I wanna be Brando in the Wild One
I wanna be somethin' to someone
Cause nothin' ever changes in this town,
The same old crew, hangin' around
Just waitin' for some sh*t to go down
But we love our

Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies

Now I'm grown, kids of my own, I never thought I could be a dad
Me and my girl, we're goin' strong, still the best friend that I ever had

Now I know the things that I didn't know
I got smokes, but I buy 'em now, I guess I'm old
Drive-in's just an empty lot that no one mows

I miss those drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies
Drive-in movies

I spent all my childhood years, wishin' that I looked like a movie star
