LyricsEdit

I was nothing but a lonely boy looking for something new
And you were nothing but a lonely girl
But you were something
Something like a dream come true

I was a varsity tackle and a hell of a block
When I played my guitar I made the canyons rock
But every Saturday night
I felt the fever grow
Do ya know what it's like?
All revved up with no place to go
Do ya know what it's like?
All revved up with no place to go

In the middle of a steaming night
I'm tossing in my sleep
And in the middle of a red-eyed dream
I see you coming
Coming on to give it to me

I was out on the prowl down by the edge of the track
And like a son of a jackal I'm a leader of the pack
But every Saturday night
I felt the fever grow
Do ya know what it's like?
All revved up with no place to go
Do ya know what it's like?
All revved up with no place to go

Oh, baby, I'm a hunter in the dark of the forest
I've been stalking you and tracking you down
Cruising up and down the main drag all night long
We could be standing at the top of the world
Instead of sinking further down in the mud
You and me 'round about midnight
You and me 'round about midnight
Someone's got to draw first
Draw first
Someone's got to draw first blood
Someone's got to draw first blood
Ooh I got to draw first blood
Ooh I got to draw first blood

I was out on the prowl down by the edge of the track
And like a son of a jackal I'm a leader of the pack
But every Saturday night
I felt the fever grow
Do ya know what it's like?
All revved up with no place to go
Do ya know what it's like?
All revved up with no place to go

I was nothing but a lonely all-American boy
Looking for something to do
And you were nothing but a lonely all-American girl
But you were something like a dream come true
I was a varsity tackle and a hell of a block
And when I played my guitar I made the canyons rock
But every Saturday night
I felt the fever grow
All revved up with no place to go
All revved up with no place to go
All revved up with no place to go
All revved up with no place to go
All revved up with no place to go!

Alternate LyricsEdit

I was nothing but a hungry boy looking for something new
And it was nothing but an endless dream
But it was something
Something like a dream come true

I was out on the prowl down by the edge of the track
And like a son of a jackal I've been running with the pack
Now every day, every night
I feel the fever grow
Do ya know what it's like?
All revved up with no place to go
Do ya know what it's like?
All revved up with no place to go

Let the revels begin, let the cages be opened
Let the flags all be unfurled
I'm just a blue-eyed blond-haired black-hearted boy
Killing time until the end of the world!

What's the meaning of life, what's the meaning of it all?
You gotta learn to dance before you learn to crawl
You gotta learn to dance before you learn to crawl!
Every day, every night
I feel the fever grow
Do ya know what it's like?
All revved up with no place to go
Do ya know what it's like?
All revved up with no place to go

I was nothing but a desperate all-American boy
Looking out for something to do
And it was nothing but an endless all-American dream
But it was something like a dream come true
I was out on the prowl down by the edge of the track
And like the son of a jackal I've been running with the pack
But every day and every night
I felt the fever grow
All revved up with no place to go
All revved up with no place to go
All revved up with no place to go
All revved up with no place to go
All revved up with no place to go!

Intro Speech (1977 tour)Edit

Friday night
Friday night
You're at home
You're in front of your TV
You're listening to your radio
Your hand, your hand starts to turn numb
That's your left hand
Then your right hand
You're up, you're up
You're out of your chair
You don't quite know where you're going
You're walking around
You're walking around your living room
Then you walk into your bedroom
Then you walk into your bathroom
You don't know what you're doing
Your feet, your feet
Your feet begin to turn numb
Your head
The blood, the blood, the blood
The blood in your hand
The head, your head
You think you're going crazy
The situation
The situation has got you
You're out of control
The blood in your head
The blood in your head
It begins to pulse
It begins to pulse
It begins to pulse
And pulse, pulse, pulse
Pulse, pulse, pulse
Ah, ah, you think you're going crazy
You think, you think you're going crazy
Pulse, pulse, pulse, pulse
You're all revved up with no place to go!
