Seems like a long time since
we sang our songs to the crowd,
There's been a whole lot of music
and a whole lot of friends,
Between seventy-seven and now;
Some say it's money, some say it's fame,
Maybe a little of both;
We say no matter the rhyme or the reason,
As long as we're still for the show.

And it only takes two for the show,
When we gather a crowd
of those good-hearted people,
The kind that we've come to know;
Just move us on down to the next little town,
Where they're ready and waiting to go;
Get out that music, and clear us a dance floor,
'Cause we've got you two for the show.

[Spoken]
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen,
And welcome to our show;
Hope you're going to enjoy yourselves,
As much as we enjoy being here with you.

We don't get off on that stuff
that they say makes you fly,
When the music is tight and the crowd is cheering,
We're on a natural high;
'Cause nobody's strangers, only friends we just met,
We're only too happy to know,
That up on the bandstand, one with the crowd,
Here we are two for the show.

And it only takes two for the show,
When we gather a crowd
of those good-hearted people,
The kind that we've come to know;
Just move us on down to the next little town,
Where they're ready and waiting to go;
Get out that music, and clear us a dance floor,
'Cause we've got you two for the show.

[Spoken with last two lines of verse two in background.]
There you are, folks, thank you very, very much,
We've been so happy bein' with you tonight.
And we look forward to seein' you
just down the road.

Thank you, folks.
