Ghost of 1988

Smack talking, crack walking track knocking
Pyro setting
Drama getting
Sun setting
 Down by the docks
 Flocks of Hawks
Dance on rocks
Crazy, snazzy bustin locks
Boats shakin
Waves breakin
Bodies quakin
Another summer makin
Beach nights
Hot rights
Drunken fights
 Lost sights
Neon tights
 Ocean and sand
 Water and land
 Patios and band
Drinks in hand
 It's 1988
We stay out too late
 Party? Can't wait
 Leather and pastels 
Flock of Seagulls 
Haispray and gels
Midnight Ssshhhh don't tell
 Time to go
 Don't say no
 Time goes on
 They'll know we are gone
 Curfews and rules
Churches and schools
 Hurry get home. Try.
We had a ride back. Who was that guy?
 We will be caught. Grounded. Must lie.
 We made it. There's still 26 days left of July.
