Backing Up Sally G

Well it's just another weeknight
And the crowd ain't great
Must be trouble on the freeway
Been a lot of that of late
And there's a few of the ususals
Wrapped around their drinks
And a madman in the corner
No one cares what he thinks...

(chorus)
But it's all right with me
All right with me
'Cause I'm playing in the band
Backing up Sally G...

Now there's Amber in the spotlight
She's a little bit fat
Got no pride in her appearance
What the hell's up with that
Chewing gum with a vengeance
And looking bored to tears
She says she's only twenty-one
But it ain't about the years...

(chorus)
And it's all right with me
All right with me
'Cause I'm playing in the band
Backing up Sally G...

And the drummer he's a good man
But a little bit sad
He's had eleven operations and he still feels bad
Got a love affair with bushmills
Been known to do cocaine
Says it's just for recreation
Lord it ain't about the pain...

(chorus)
And it's all right with me
All right with me
'Cause I'm playing in the band
Backing up Sally G...

And then Sally hits the stage
All I can do is stare
She's got legs that go forever
And a world-class derriere
And she moves just like a cobra
And she's driving me insane
And now she's down to nothing
And I just forgot my name
And she's swaying, she's playing
She moves it all around
She's touching everything she's got
And crawling 'cross the ground
And I swear my friend for just one night
I'd die a happy man
'Cause the girl can pick up dollar bills
And never use her hands...

(chorus)
And it's all right with me
All right with me
'Cause I'm playing in the band
Backing up Sally G...
