lyrics

THROW ME A LINE

Why don't you sing that song for me?
The one they sang when they set the people free
We we're laughing all the way to the bank but the bank was closed
So we bought a cheap bottle of wine, so the story goes
To bed...

And I'd love to take you home
But the ceiling came down so we got no place to go
Once in a while (it) does you good to go without
'Cause it all works out just fine in the end, no doubt about it

You said you want to know me
I guessed you'd want to show me
Why don't you throw me a line?

Why don't you wear that dress for me?
The one you wore back in 1993
We were laughing all the way to the end when the credits ran
So we headed off into the night when the lights went down
Too bad…

You said you want to know me
I guessed you'd want to show me
Why don't you use that time?
Go ahead and make it mine
Don't make it wrong to know me
Go ahead if you want to show me
Why don't you throw me a line?
Go ahead and throw me a line
Go ahead and throw me...

And I'd love you here with me
But the waters ran under the bridge and out to sea
So if you see me smile, it did me good to go without
'Cause it all worked out just fine in the end, no doubt about it

Go ahead and throw me a line...
Why don't you throw me a line?
