Bob Seger Betty Lou Lyrics

Have you heard the news - It's all over town
If you ain't heard it boys you better sit down
I got the story here It's hot off the press
Brace yourself now and take a deep breath
Grab a hold of something hold on tight
Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight

First heard the rumor down on 12th and Main
The poor druggist he was going insane
His stuff is selling out like never before
He finally had to up and close the store
All the boys were getting ready to fight
Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight

Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight - Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight
She was bad - her momma got mad - But now her momma said it's all right
All the boys are getting ready and right - Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight
Betty Lou - Betty Lou ---- It's all true ---- It's really true
What do you think about that boys

Betty Lou - Betty Lou - Yes its true - Betty Lou -------- Ah Well
Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight - Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight
She was bad - her momma got mad - But now her momma said it's all right
All the boys are getting ready and right - Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight
Her momma said that it would be alright - Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight
Grab ahold of something hold one tight - Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight
