Its how the hustle goes, see what the jukebox knows.

Put my last quarter on, I play "Authority Song."

Tell me Im not scared anymore.

I got no secret purpose, I dont seem obvious do I?

I dont seem obvious do I?

The DJ never has it, J A M C Automatic.

If those were Roy's headphones, you bet he'd play "What Goes On".

I got no secret purpose, I dont seem obvious do I?

Oh I'm here, that means something doesn't it?

Oh wont you dance with me a little bit?

Oh you dont notice, I guess the musics too loud.
