Come On Down (Roy Payne and Derek Pilgrim)

Come on down, let it all hang out,
Do a little living before your wick burns out;
Get out on the dance floor, swing around and around,
Stop whatever you're doing, and come on down.

Did you ever go fishing on a salmon run,
Look at a moose down the barrel of a gun,
Watch the northern lights as they dance across the sky?
Did you ever go courting in a pickup truck,
Turn the headlights off, turn the radio up?
If the answer is no, do it before you die.

Come on down, let it all hang out,
Do a little living before your wick burns out;
Get out on the dance floor, swing around and around,
Stop whatever you're doing, and come on down.

Did you ever go dogging by the light of the moon,
Pick an old guitar a little out of tune,
Run a midnight raid on the old man's lobster pots,
Drink home brew till you kiss the floor,
Wake up grinning and looking for more?
That airplane ticket is the best thing you ever bought.

Come on down, let it all hang out,
Do a little living before your wick burns out;
Get out on the dance floor, swing around and around,
Stop whatever you're doing, and come on down.
