The Guys are feeling good about their liquor run. 
The girls are kinda flirting with the setting sun.

    We all kinda fumbled through the jitterbug.
    We were all powered up on some new upper drug.

### Repeat Palm Muted for remainder of first verse.

everyone was funny and everyone was pretty. 
everyone was coming towards the center of the city. 
the dancefloor was crowded. the bathrooms were worse. 
we kissed in your car and we drank from your purse.

        I had my mouth on her nose when the chaperone said we were dancing too close...

### Repeat main riff

we had some massive nights. 
every song was right. 
all that wine was tight. 
your friends were pretty cool. 
and my friends were acting cool.

[ VERSE 2 ] - no guitar, bass only
 
there weren't any fights. 
there's usually one or two. 
some guys they get a little bit uptight. 
some girls they got something to prove.
we had some massive highs. 
we had some crushing lows. 
we had some lusty little crushes.
we had those all ages hardcore matinee shows.

[ PRE CHORUS ]

### Repeat as above

i was down on my knees when the chaperone said that it was time for me to leave.

[ CHORUS ]

### Repeat main riff

we had some massive nights. 
every song was right. 
all that wine was tight. 
your friends were pretty cool. 
and my friends were acting cool.

we had some massive nights. 
we had some massive nights. 
we had some massive nights. 
we had some massive nights.
