I met this girl down in Salt Lake City
Boy she could really dance.
And when she moved, she looked so pretty,
All the guys were in a trance.
‘Only the dead ever leave this city.
Jump in my car
Do you wanna take a chance?
Only the dead ever leave this city’.
(Middle 8 break)
We met a guy down in New York City
He asked my girl if she would go to France.
He had a Porsche, he was dull but pretty.
Salt Lake girl was in a trance.
‘Only the dead live in this city.
I’ll jump your car
And take you for a ride.
Only the dead ever live in this city’.
