*: My new purple shoes
'been amazing the people next door
And my rock'n'roll 45's
'been enraging the folks on the lower floor

1. I got a way with the girls on my block
Try my best be a real individual
And when we go down to Smokies and rock
They line up like it's some kinda ritual

R: Ooh give me a good guitar
and you can say that my hair's a disgrace
or just find an open car
I'll make the speed of light out of this place

2. I like the good things in life
But most of the best things ain't free
So the same situation just cuts like a knife
When you 're young and you're poor and you're crazy

R: Ooh give me a good guitar...
