Lyric "Smack Dab In The Middle"

[Verse 1]
Pick me a town in any clime
Where people like, a rocking time
And stay awake both day and night
Till everybody's feeling good an' right

Then throw me
(Smack dab in the middle)
I wanna be
(Smack dab in the middle)
Ahh, smack dab in the middle, boys now
So I can rock and roll to satisfy my soul

[Verse 2]
Ten Cadillacs, a diamond mill
Ten suits of clothes to dress to kill
A ten room house, some barbecue
And fifty chicks not over twenty-two


[Verse 3]
One hundred beds with chorus girls
A street that's paved with natural pearls
A wagon load of bonds and stocks
Then open up the door at Fort Knox

Then throw me
(Smack dab in the middle)
I wanna be
(Smack dab in the middle)
Ahh, now listen boys throw me smack dab in the middle right now
So Ray can rock and roll to satisfy his soul

That's all right!

[Verse 4]
A lot of bread and gangs of meat
Oodles of butter and something sweet
Gallons of coffee to wash it down
Bicarbonated soda by the pound
