Dead Ringer For Love

Every night I grab some money and I go down to the bar
I got my buddies and a beer, I got a dream - I need a car
You got me begging on my knees, c'mon and throw the dog a bone
A man he doesn't live by rock 'n roll and brew alone

Baby baby
Rock 'n roll and brew
Rock 'n roll and brew
I know that you and I oh oh we got better things to do

Rock 'n roll and brew
Rock 'n roll and brew
They don't mean a thing when I compare 'em next to you

I don't know who you are or what you do
Or where you go when you're not around
I don't know anything about you baby
But you're everything I'm dreaming of
I don't know who you are
But you're a real dead ringer for love
You're a real dead ringer for love

[Girl:]
Ever since I can remember you been hanging around this joint
You been trying to look away but now you finally got the point
I don't have to know your name and I won't tell you what to do
But a girl - she doesn't live by only rock 'n roll and brew

Baby baby baby baby

[Both]
Rock 'n roll and brew
Rock 'n roll and brew

[Boy:]
They don't mean a thing when I compare 'em next to you

[Both]
Rock 'n roll and brew
Rock 'n roll and brew

[Boy:]
I know that you and I oh oh we got better things to do

[Boy]
I don't know who you are or what you do
Or where you go when you're not around

[Girl]
I don't know anything about you baby
But you're everything I'm dreaming of

[Girl]
I don't know who you are

[Boy]
But you're a real dead ringer for love
You're a real dead ringer for love

[Boy:]
You got the kind of legs that do more than walk

[Girl:]
I don't have to listen to your whimpering talk

[Boy:]
Listen you got the kind of eyes that do more than see

[Girl:]
You got a lotta nerve to come on to me

[Boy:]
You got the kind of lips that do more than drink

[Girl:]
You got the kind of mind that does less than think

[Girl:]
But since I'm feeling kinda lonely and my defenses are low

[Girl:]
Why don't you give it a shot and get it ready to go

[Girl:]
I'm looking for anonymous and fleeting satisfaction

[Girl:]
I want to tell my daddy I'll be missing in action

[Girl:]
Ever since I can remember I've been hanging 'round this joint
My daddy never noticed - now he'll finally get the point

[Boy:]
You got me beggin' on my knees - c'mon and throw the dog a bone
A man he doesn't live by rock 'n roll and brew alone

[Both]
Baby baby, baby baby
Rock 'n roll and brew
Rock 'n roll and brew
I know that you and I oh oh we got better things to do

Rock 'n roll and brew
Rock 'n roll and brew
They don't mean a thing when I compare 'em next to you

[Girl]
I don't know who you are

[Boy]
Oh what you do

[Girl]
Or where you go

[Boy]
When you're not around

[Girl]
I don't know anything about you baby

[Boy]
But you're everything I'm dreaming of

[Both]
I don't know who you are
But you're a real dead ringer for love
You're a real dead ringer for love
