I've spent a lot of time looking for lust But the only thing I found was a bride I spent a year or two courting these hawks But the last thing that I felt was alive I spent some nights passed out on the couch And I guess I'd say that I've survived I know the feeling of a mouth full of Jack And I'm amazed I never fell off the plank I'd like to say it was a war story Cranking Justice until three AM But in my old age it wasn't war I waged And I'm always done by a quarter to ten And it's all a pretense in these Masquerades on Saturdays I've spent a lot of time looking for love But I found her with her legs in the air She told me that she'd spent some time in a band And so she had me in the palm of her hand Now I'm a rapscallion, a villainous man But I couldn't shake the sense that I'd met my match Cause she was bad news and I just couldn't refuse And I couldn't choke the flames of discontent And there was no pretense here Yeah, we're going down Masquerades on Saturdays She was a digital love, daft and untamed And when I saw her in stockings well I couldn't be blamed But I could hardly speak, yeah, and I could hardly breathe So I crawled into my bottle to give my soul a slight reprieve Masquerades on Saturdays Yeah, we're going down
Get home, turn on, tune in, let the needle drop Unwound, but I can't exhale 'til the music stops So Kellie moans, "Let's dance 'til the morning comes" And I put on I didn't see it coming Now the record spins and she gets off the couch I sit in stride and then we keep on rocking At six, she runs downstairs to get a six At nine, she comes back up with her bag of tricks She won't back down and I tell her I'd never When she's in town or even when she's better Yeah, the records spin and Jenny's stumbling 'round The girls can't win and they reject the sounds In stereo, but it's only rock and roll And I like it, yeah I like it, yes I do She won't back down She won't back down Reject those sounds She won't back down The records spin and we're all lingering The girls can't win and they reject the men In stereo, but it's only how they roll And they like it, yeah they like it, yes they do It's cold out, so we saunter over to a bar on Park One round, wondering where Casey went after dark It's two drinks down and we figure she's locked out But no one takes pause to think that she's locked up The records spin and Kellie's just passed out So we can't win and we reject the night In stereo, but it's only rock and roll And we like it, yeah we like it, yes we do
