Lyrics

THE GREAT ESCAPE

Work deadlines, overtime, payments overdue
Wish I could play hooky the way I did in school
Toss the alarm clock out the window, unplug the telephone
Take the worry and the hurry, put it all on hold

And dance until the dawn breaks, paint the town a flaming red
Howl at the moon, sleep until noon, completely lose my head
Laugh like there?s no tomorrow, declare a holiday
For just one night forget about life and make the great escape

I?ve been walking the straight and narrow, doing what I should
Playing it safe, looking both ways, being much too good
But there?s a devil daring me, go out and misbehave
Time is short, don?t hesitate, take all the joy you crave
Chorus:

Baby, get up off that couch, turn off that TV
We can make it out of here, come on, I?ve got the keys

Let?s dance until the dawn breaks, paint the town a flaming red
Howl at the moon, sleep until noon, completely lose our heads
Laugh like there?s no tomorrow, declare a holiday
For just one night forget about life and make the great escape
