SUMMER EVENING CRUISE
(Roy D’Innocenzo/Rick Lugg)

Well, I rode my amp
Down the gangway ramp
And put on my blue suede shoes

The band goes live
At 7:05
On the summer evening cruise

The captain blows the horn
In a last-minute warning
Gonna tell Chuck Berry the news

In the time it takes
To sail up the lake
On the summer evening cruise

Everyone’s dancing
Reeling & rocking,
Bodies all over the floor

The deck is hopping
Canes are dropping
Music’s like a miracle cure

We play three full sets
To help pay our debts
They give us dinner, but no free booze

Lotta hands to shake
When we take our breaks
On the summer evening cruise

We know every decade
Of the hit parade
Fast rockers to slow-hand blues

Let yourself go
To a song we all know
On the summer evening cruise

Everyone’s dancing,
Reeling & rocking,
Bodies all over the floor

The deck is hopping
Canes are dropping
Music’s like a miracle cure

[Roy solo]

Everyone’s dancing
Reeling & rocking,
Bodies all over the floor

The deck is hopping
Canes are dropping
Music’s like a miracle cure

When the clock strikes ten
We turn it up again
Nothing but our hearing to lose

You can hear us all
The way to Montreal
On the summer evening cruise

Hear us all
The way to Montreal
On the summer evening cruise

Every night
Between spring and fall
On the....
