Matchbox – Buzz Buzz A Diddle It

Well, I was rollin’ down the highway
To see my baby Ruth
Car broke down, tire blew out
Found a telephone booth

I tried to call my honey
What was the sound I had to hear?
(Buzz buzz a-diddle-it) In my ear?
(Buzz buzz a-diddle-it)

Yeah, it’s some endless yackin’ hound dog
Obviously talkin’to my dear

(Buzz buzz a-diddle-it)
(Buzz buzz a-diddle-it)

Central seven, who’s on that line?
Break through to my baby
3-0-9-3-9

Oh, S.O.S. sweet mama
Switch me to heaven, get me through

(Buzz buzz a-diddle-it)
(Buzz buzz a-diddle-it)
Telephone, operator
My lovin’ future hangs on you
(Buzz buzz a-diddle-it)
(Buzz buzz a-diddle-it)

Hang on!
Eee-a!
Ow!
Oooh!

Ah!

Matchbox – Midnight Dynamos 1980

You better beware and you better take care
When we hit the town tonight –
Kick away the blues
No time to lose honey
We can make it right
Pretty little thing
How your heart will sing
Fill it up with pure delight
In a supercharge from the gas garage
Explode like dynamite

We are the midnight dynamo’s
Only come alive when the old moon shows
We are the midnight
We are the midnight
Midnight dynamo’s
We are the midnight
Midnight dynamo’s

We are the midnight dynamo’s
So baby get a load of the fancy clothes
We are the midnight dynamo’s
We are the midnight
Midnight…

Hurry on down pretty mama we’re bound now
And we’re really set to go
You’ve never been alive cut the fancy jive
Don’t you ever tell me no
Come-acome-away hear to the hot band play
How they always steal the show
Gonna wear you out make you jump and shout
You won’t have time to blow

We are the midnight dynamo’s

Any place we cruisin’
People know us one by one
Ready packed for action fun
For all and all for fun
We are the midnight dynamo’s

You put the boom-boom into my heart (do do)
You send my soul sky high when your lovin’ starts
Jitterbug into my brain (yeah yeah)
Goes a bang-bang-bang ’til my feet do the same
But something’s bugging you
Something ain’t right
My best friend told me what you did last night
Left me sleepin’ in my bed
I was dreaming, but I should have been with you instead.

Wake me up before you go-go
Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don’t want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
‘Cause I’m not planning on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go (ah)
Take me dancing tonight
I wanna hit that high (yeah, yeah)

You take the grey skies out of my way (do do)
You make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day
Turned a bright spark into a flame (yeah yeah)
My beats per minute never been the same

‘Cause you’re my lady, I’m your fool
It makes me crazy when you act so cruel
Come on, baby, let’s not fight
We’ll go dancing, everything will be all right

Wake me up before you go-go
Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don’t want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
‘Cause I’m not planning on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go (ah)
Take me dancing tonight
I wanna hit that high (yeah, yeah, yeah, baby)

(Jitterbug)
(Jitterbug)

Cuddle up, baby, move in tight
We’ll go dancing tomorrow night
It’s cold out there, but it’s warm in bed
They can dance, we’ll stay home instead (yeah, yeah)

(Jitterbug)

Wake me up before you go-go
Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don’t want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
‘Cause I’m not plannin’ on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go (ah)
Take me dancing tonight
Wake me up before you go-go, don’t you dare to leave me hanging on like a
