Lost Weekend – Stan Ridgway

She was in the back seat while he was at the wheel
With the windows wide open

All the money from the store, they’d gambled away
He said “;the best laid plans often go astray”;

She took the page of a book and turned it down
She lit a cigarette, she didn’t make a sound

“;And I know, if we’d had just one more chance,”; he said
“;I know, we’d finally hit the big one at last”;, she said

Chorus:
(Instead of) another lost weekend
Lost weekend
Another lost weekend
Lost weekend

“;Pull over soon,”; she said, “;it’s no big deal,
You can take any exit that you happen to feel
Is the right one”;
The right one

As she slowly blew her smoke out the rear wind vent
She thought back on all the letters she’d sent
For a contest to be on a quiz game show

“;Maybe I shoulda stayed in school,”; he said
“;Yeah, I knowЁCЁCstart your own business cleanin’ swimming pools,”; she said

Chorus repeat x2

She leaned over the front seat and twiddled with the radio dial
She looked out the window, saw a sign, and both of them began to smile
“;There’s a place we can stay at… it’s up another mile.”;
