Put Another Quarter (In The Record Machine) Lyrics

Dale Mabry

It was a dog-tired Friday night in this honky-tonk
I told the bartender, "Cash me out. I'm fixing to go."
That's when the jukebox stopped
And she walked in
I said, "Now, wait a minute, Gary, guess I'll have one more round.
And send a whiskey to the woman that just sat herself down."
I said, "My name is Dale."
She said her name was Lynn.

So put another quarter in the record machine
This night's a ways from over if you know what I mean
So, may I have this dance?
Ooh, I'd like to get to know you
Us folks don't get the luxuries of love and romance
We try to make a living and we get what we can
So, may I have this dance?
Ooh, I'd like to get to know you

I can see it in your eyes you've spent all day on your feet
That makes two of us, but baby, there's worse places to be
Than dancing in the dark with a man that understands you
I don't have to be your lover or your man on the side
It don't have to last forever
It can just be tonight
But come on, don't be shy
It's not long until the sunrise

So put another quarter in the record machine
This night's a ways from over if you know what I mean
So, may I have this dance?
Ooh, I'd like to get to know you
Us folks don't get the luxuries of love and romance
We try to make a living and we get what we can
So, may I have this dance?
Ooh, I'd like to get to know you

We got no one to depend on, but folks depending on us
They take up all our minutes
They take up all our hours
They leave us Friday nights and the touches of a stranger
But why don't we make the most of it, burn like hungry lovers
We live and die alone, but tonight we've got each other
And these big strong arms will protect you from all danger

So put another quarter in the record machine
This night's a ways from over if you know what I mean
So, may I have this dance?
Ooh, I'd like to get to know you
Us folks don't get the luxuries of love and romance
We try to make a living and we get what we can
So, may I have this dance?
Ooh, I'd like to get to know you
