Riot Night

This song is by Bleu Edmondson and appears on the album The Future Ain't What It Used To Be (2010).

Twilight strollers and the rock 'n' rollers
Oh, how they shine so bright
The cops watch close
Just to make sure it all goes down alright

Oh, poor David, oh, poor David
You locked your doors up tight
And moved the neon circus way downtown

Greenville Ave. is smokin'
Just like the fires out in Cali
The university girls dressed hot
They're out lookin' for a rally

Well, young lovers laugh like they always do
At drunk jesters out on the avenue
They been drinkin' to forget since the sun went down

It's riot night, oh, it's riot night
Better know just who you are
It's riot night, oh, it's riot night
So, baby, don't stray too far

Now, the place is gettin' wild
Ho, and even wilder yet
That girl dancin' on the bar
They call her the queen of Lafayette

They say she rolled into town one night
And shone like a diamond in the summer starlight
Now the boys all fight for a peek at her charms

It's riot night, oh, it's riot night
Better know just who you are
It's riot night, oh, it's riot night
So baby, don't stray

Now the joint is packed tight
With paper kings and queens
But their eyes filled up
With smoky distant things

Now, darlin', finish your drink 'cause we know the score
We're gonna make a run hard for that back door
I know a place where we can go
Just hold my arm

Don't hold your breath now, honey
'Cause we got all night
And we ain't goin' home this time
'Til we see the early light

There's a bottle in the back of my car
You got faith and I got a guitar
Now, take those high heels off
Climb on my back

It's riot night, oh, it's riot night
Better know just who you are
It's riot night, oh, it's riot night
So baby, come on, baby

Riot night, riot night, riot night
Come on, baby
